Do you ever hanker to go back to those golden years between 1948 and 1966? Well, now you can - and you don’t have to travel back in time to experience this classic motoring epoch.
All road racers which competed during this 18-year period, whether cars or bikes, are eligible for the Goodwood Revival, which takes place from September 9 to 11.
Organisers are sure you won’t see a bigger historic car racing event in the world.
An Aussie legend, dusk racing and 60s saloons
Australian speedster Jack Brabham is honoured half a century after he became the first and last driver (so far) to win a Formula 1 World Championship in a machine which bore his own surname.
The Brabham BT19 propelled him to his third title in 1966 and he also won 14 individual races in a 126-race career. He died two years ago, aged 88. But he will never be forgotten.
The Revival will bring together a massive collection of motors that encompassed his career in all its guises. Sports cars, saloons and single-seaters will grace the track during weekend-long demonstrations.
And there can surely be fewer more spectacular sights than the Revival’s Friday night races. The Freddie March Memorial Trophy race will see contestants race into the September dusk.
Meanwhile, Saturday sees world-renowned celebrities and racers join a stellar competitor list for the St Mary’s Trophy. Here, 1960s saloons battle it out for first prize.
Don’t leave without…
• Seeing the showpiece race: The RAC TT contest is the showpiece of the whole festival. It pits a welter of former grand prix winners against one another and features more than £150 million worth of machinery.
• Looking to the skies: Old-school planes are usually a highlight of the show. Last year 12 Spitfires took part in a special flypast to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
• Dressing up: Put yourself in with a chance to win a special prize by donning your finest costume, whether swinging 60s apparel or teddy boy outfits.
