Over the last 18 years, the Goodwood Revival has become one of the most famous historic motor racing events in the world. A highlight in the classic motoring calendar, the Revival has run every September since 1998 and brings back to life the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit, when it was an active race track from 1948-66.
Goodwood Revival 2016 – what’s on?
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s largest historic motor racing and vintage culture event, with a crowd of almost 150,000 donning period clothing to attend the 3 day event.
Every year the Goodwood Revival honours one driver and their achievements in motorsport. In 2016 the Revival driver tribute will honour Sir Jack Brabham on the 50th anniversary of the legendary Australian racing driver becoming the only driver in history to win the Formula 1 World Championship in a car bearing his own name.
Brabham raced and tested at Goodwood extensively throughout his career, developing a number of championship-winning cars at the Motor Circuit. A huge gathering of single-seater, saloon and sports cars encompassing his career as a driver and team owner will take part in a number of on-track demonstrations during the weekend.
