Goodwood Revival Raises the Bar Again

Filed under: Classic News |
The Ford water Trophy for production based sports and GTs 1960-66Friday and an early start was compulsory to get onto the Goodwood estate without the inevitable queues as tens of thousands headed for the circuit. Having visited many times before I thought I knew just what to expect but as always the Revival is able to improve every year and 2014 in my opinion is the best ever. No doubt there is enough to entertain everyone for the day without even looking at a car on track. The multimillions worth of machinery in the paddock and on the hallowed 2.3 mile circuit not only surpassed previous years but ensured this unique events position as world no1 for another year. The pre 74 car park was as usual packed, competitions for the best car are held each day whilst many enthusiasts spend the day not intending on crossing the road to the circuit at all. With social media constantly pumping out information leaving home is not a necessity but there really isn’t anything like being in amongst it all, the atmosphere is just amazing and the hardest decision often involves what to see next. So, for the undecided I put together a small gallery of my choice of Friday’s highlights on and off track, the cars and the stars that were hanging around the paddock. For those that have tickets for the main event on Sunday be prepared to have all your senses ‘rocked’ and enjoy the experience, you will be boring those who didn’t attend for months.
