Win two tickets to Goodwood Revival

30 April 2013 47 Comments

For three late summer days each September, Chichester’s Goodwood Motor Circuit echoes to the bark of golden-age Grand Prix cars from the 1950s and ‘60s, thundering sports and GT cars and historic saloons, many of which are driven by famous faces from motor sport past and present. We have a pair of tickets for the much-anticipated Goodwood Revival  to give away to one lucky Vintage Brighton reader.

Goodwood Revival

Aside from the intoxicating entertainment on the track at Goodwood Revival, there is breathtaking action in the skies above this former Battle of Britain airfield as Spitfires, Hurricanes and Mustangs perform elaborate swoops and dives over the circuit.

The Vintage Hair Lounge offers vintage makeovers on-site, festival-goers can indulge in a spot of vintage shopping at the dozens of vintage clothing, motoring memorabilia and reproduction stalls and a varied range of food and drink, from burgers at the NAAFI Wagon to champagne and seafood, ensure that you’ll be as well-fuelled as the classic cars.

Great lengths are taken to ensure that everything the circuit and site, opened in 1948 by the ninth Duke of Richmond, is unchanged from its heyday. This means that no modern vehicles are allowed within the circuit perimeter throughout the weekend.

And it’s not just the circuit and the vehicles that have an authentic period look; all circuit staff dress in appropriate period clothing from the 1940s and 1950s, and each year more spectators and competitors get into the Goodwood spirit by dressing the part and competing for ‘best dressed’ prizes.
