    A Magical step back in time

    The Goodwood Revival really is a magical step back in time, a unique chance to revel in the glamour and allure of motor racing in the romantic time capsule of the world’s most authentic motor circuit.
    Leave the ‘Modern World’ Behind

    The Revival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

    It is the biggest and best historic motor racing party of the year.

    The Revival offers visitors the opportunity to leave the ‘modern world’ behind and join motor sport luminaries including Sir Stirling Moss, Richard Attwood, John Surtees and Derek Bell in an unabashed celebration of flat-out, wheel-to-wheel racing around a classic racetrack, untouched by the modern world.

    Action packed day. Saw an Alfa Romeo do a barrel roll, Maserati crunched into the wall, pack of vintage Ford GT40 cars roaring around the track, even vintage aircraft overhead are part of the weekend.
    Dario Franchitti, Tom Kristenson, Oliver Gavin among the top drivers. Ollie is in a Mini Cooper. Kristenson has won more 24 Hours of Le Mans than anyone, is in a few cars. Today I saw him racing a Ford Galaxie 500. Dario in Jim Clark's Lotus.
    GT40's run again Sunday.

    A seat belt would have been useful right about here.

    Nigel Corner was lucky to survive this crash at the Goodwood Revival in 1998.
