The 2010 Goodwood Revival – which takes place over 17-19 September – is set to be a very special weekend, with mouth-watering grids, scintillating on-track action, a number of significant anniversaries to celebrate.
The lovingly restored circuit is unchanged from its heyday (1948-1966), and great lengths are taken to ensure that everything on the site is exactly as it was. No modern vehicles are allowed within the circuit perimeter throughout the weekend – period vehicles provide all essential services and competitor support. Bands play 1950s music, the corn stooks on the circuit infield are made from a specially-grown crop with extra-long stalks for hand cutting rather than combine harvesting, and even the food has a 1950s flavour.
The vast majority of Revival visitors dress in period style with many going to great lengths to achieve that authentic look. The resulting step-back-in-time spectacle plays a key role in making the Revival such a unique event. While you're not required to dress up (unless you qualify for central Paddock access, in which a jacket and tie is necessary for gentlemen, and a dress or suit for the ladies), you’ll feel much more involved if you do.
Saturday at Revival is Ladies' Day, as Goodwood hosts motor racing’s first, and only, special day at motor sport for female visitors. As historic 40’s and 50’s fashion is in vogue – visitors can expect to see some truly glamorous and iconic looks on show Throughout Revival Saturday a leading team of fashion gurus will be out and about in search of the most immaculately-groomed ladies in the crowds, with spot prizes of the finest Veuve Clicquot champagne and flowers awarded to the lucky few.
