With the Festival of Speed now out of the way, the industry’s eyes turn to the Goodwood Revival, which is taking place from the 7th to 9th September in 2018. For those of you who haven’t been before, here’s some information to help you get the most from the weekend.

Do it in style

There’s motor racing hospitality available at the event and this is the best way to rub shoulders with the coolest people. Not to mention you’ll be well looked after with all your food and drink included.

You’ll also be able to get close to all the action as hospitality providers get pride of place next to the track and assembly area.

Dress up

By Adam Beresford

You’ll find most people at Goodwood Revival dressed up in vintage clothing. For the men that usually means tweeds and trilbies, with stunning dresses and furs for the ladies. The era you choose is up to you but you’ll find everything from the twenties through to the seventies, a bit like the cars.

Classics only

By Drew Gibson

This is an event for classic cars and that means nothing modern is allowed within the circuit during the weekend. It’s the perfect way to step back through automotive history.

Kids go free

by Nicole Hains

Children under 12 can get into the event for free and there’s plenty of activities the whole family can enjoy. Anyone aged 12-21 can get in for half price.


The team at Goodwood do their best to accommodate disabled guests. If you’d like to know more about accessibility and transport options, take a look here. The ground can get uneven in places and muddy when it rains, so please keep this in mind when planning your Revival adventure.

You can park your classic as part of the show

The Revival Car Show is a field of thousands of classic cars. Anyone can book their classic vehicle into this car park for guests to walk around and admire. Be aware, this car park will sell out.

Plan ahead

Just like the Festival of Speed, the event gets very busy and there can be delays getting to the car parks. Plan your journey ahead of time and give yourself plenty of time to get there. The whole event is well signposted so make sure you follow the signs as well as directions from officials instead of your satnav.
