A crowd of thousands have flocked to Goodwood this weekend, as the Revival returns with its familiar mix of classic cars, professional drivers and committed scraps on track.
A few weeks before the long-awaited return of the historic racing gala, Motor Sport’s readers had the opportunity to take to the circuit themselves in our track day
The cool, dry weather was ideal for the varied line-up, which included a stately Jaguar Mark 1; throaty AC Cobra 289, and screaming Ferrari 458 Speciale.
A fearsome-looking Lotus Exige V6 Cup R dominated the pitlane, but couldn’t completely overshadow a rare Lotus R340, an Aston Martin Vantage AMR V12, Lister Knobbly, nor a bright MGB.
The range of cars was matched by guests: from individuals out for a blast to drivers with support crews or instructors, all driving cleanly on the historic circuit.
One of the highlights of any Motor Sport track day is the chance to chat with like-minded drivers and guests; our end-of-summer event was no exception, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the paddock, where attendees also had the chance to get acquainted with a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and Ferrari 328 GTS brought by GTO Engineering, as well as Radical’s SR3.
“We put tremendous value on our annual Goodwood Track day as an opportunity to bring likeminded enthusiasts together from all levels,” said Rob Johnson, Managing Director of Classic & Sports Finance, which supported the track day.
“An exciting day through and through where gentleman drivers can experience this magical circuit with their cherished cars. It is like bringing historic motor sport home for the day.”
