The annual Goodwood Revival is nearly here! In just over three weeks, the iconic Goodwood grounds will host a number of events and races as part of the Revival, in a glorious annual celebration of days gone by with a focus on old school motoring. Classic and vintage racing, car shows, and retro themed displays & best-dressed contests will dominate one fantastic weekend.

Tickets have already sold out for the Goodwood Revival, but fear not; World of Motoring will be attending, travelling all the way from New Zealand in a pilgrimage for classic and vintage motoring. We’ll be posting updates on the weekend, as well as a wealth of photographs so you don’t miss out on any of the action.

So what do we have to look forward to at Goodwood Revival 2015?

One of the key attractions of the Goodwood Revival is the selection of races held over the weekend, including five categories of “celebrity two-driver” races with many famous names competing on the race track. A personal favourite is the St Mary’s Trophy, a class for saloon cars built between 1950 and 1959. Ford Anglias, BMC Minis, Austin A35 saloons and many more are just an absolute joy to watch as they scurry around the race track with surprising pace.

Revival Car Show

You’d think this massive collection of rare, collectable and desirable classics was a huge formal event in its own right – however, you would be mistaken, as this is merely the parking lot for the main Revival event! That doesn’t mean the field isn’t awash with cars aplenty to admire, meaning the Revival Car Show is a huge attraction and is definitely worth a look.

Unlike the majority of the show which is set in the 1940s – 1960s period, the Earls Court Motor Show gives car makers the chance to display new models and prototype vehicles, alongside their

classic counterparts. A must see with some wonderful displays.

Aviation Displays

A real favourite of the Goodwood Revival is the display of vintage aircraft, allowing attendees to get up close and personal with planes dating from the 1920’s onwards, including some which participated in the D-Day landings of WWII.

I'm a huge fan of classic & vintage cars, originally born in England but now living in New Zealand. My almost-daily driver is a 1965 Morris Mini, which I love taking for a spin down the windy countryside back-roads whenever I get the chance. I've had the opportunity to work on several classic Minis, as well as my dad's two MGBs, which introduced me to the passion in the first place.
