Petrolhead Events

A very wet start to the Goodwood Revival weekend did not dampen spirits although it did make the car park resemble a rally circuit. My own car almost got stuck resulting in some very careful planning on the best way to exit the car park without getting stuck.

Just like its sister event, the Festival of Speed, the Goodwood Revival seems to get better every year.

Very expensive classic and vintage cars and motorbikes were battling each other on the track, all being driven hard while the value of these vehicles seemed to have be forgotten by their drivers and riders - which makes very exciting and entertaining racing.Goodwood Revival 2017 Grid

 

 

Every where you look in the paddock were rare and expensive cars. Rows of AC Cobra's, Ferrari's, Aston Martins, GT40's and more.Goodwood Revival 2017Ferrari's at the Goodwood Revival 2017Jaguar's at the Goodwood Revival 2017

Period buildings were created for the event and spectators are encouraged to dress in the style of the time. Apart from modern cameras and mobile phones being used it really does feel like stepping back in time.Earls Court Motorshow building at the Goodwood Revival 2017
