Goodwood Revival – 2016

This year marked my third visit to the iconic classic motor sport festival that is The Goodwood Revival.

The 3-day event attracts some of the best, and costliest, historic racing motor cars and bikes in the world. They compete around the famous Goodwood Circuit in a series of different races.

Each year the Revival celebrates a historic event and this year it was the famous “They think it’s all over…” 1966 World Cup. The football theme was apparent at numerous times through the event and in keeping with the historical nature everyone attending is encouraged to dress in period costume which adds to the whole ‘nostalgic feel’ of the weekend.

Unfortunately my Revival experience this year was compromised by not being able to attend on the Friday. Saturday proved to be a complete washout in terms of the weather (not exclusively causing issues for me alone – obviously!).

However, notwithstanding the torrential rain on Saturday, I managed to get out and about on the Sunday in spite of most of my gear having suffered from ingesting too much water the day before!

A small selection of my favourites from what was clearly a challenging couple of days at the ‘wet & dry’ 2016 Revival…
