Recreating the glamour of motor racing as it used to be, the Motor Circuit comes alive for the Revival, both on and off the historic track. The only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress, the Revival sees a return to the halcyon days of Goodwood as the spiritual home of British motor racing.
1. World’s greatest historic racing
Witness hundreds of rare and priceless cars, driven by champions past and present, competing for the most coveted trophies in historic motorsport, including the St Mary’s Trophy, the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration and arguably the most competitive race of the event, the Settrington Cup children’s pedal car race.
2. Vintage fashion and second-hand style in abundance
The Revival is defined by its period dress code: tweeds and trilbies for men, furs and frocks for the ladies, and by its refusal to allow modern cars within the circuit on race days.
The lengths the Revival community go to perfect their outfits are incredible and the stories behind the outfits are special and timeless. Watch out for the style police and ‘Best Dressed Competition’ judges as they’ll be on the lookout for authentic outfits across the weekend too.
3. Improved layout and new celebrations
2021 brought a number of exciting changes to the Goodwood Revival, including a variety of new immersive areas to explore throughout the three days.
This year, Goodwood continues to revise the layout, making it easier for guests to venture round the historic Motor Circuit and explore some new areas this summer.
4. A new Revive & Thrive Village
At Revival they revisit a time when people would ‘make do and mend’ cherished belongings for a lifetime of use, reconnecting with the best of the past as an antidote to today’s throwaway culture.
In 2022, the Revive and Thrive Village will embrace that strikingly relevant mantra with workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions and talks that celebrate the joys of vintage and share ways to reuse, repair and repurpose pre-loved belongings.
5. Renowned riders and drivers
The Revival always attracts the finest in historic motor racing talent – and a host of famous faces from the motorsport world and beyond, such as Jenson Button who will be racing once again at the Revival. Stay tuned for further updates as we confirm which other celebrity drivers are joining us in 2022.
6. The perfect setting for celebrating
If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to gift yourself the day you deserve, dining and entertaining experiences at the Goodwood Revival are a sure-fire way to make your time at the event extra special.
7. Plenty of Instagrammable moments
