One of the most spectacular events becomes alive year by year on three days in September, when The Earl of March invites to the Goodwood Revival. Classic car racing enthusiasts bring their historic racers to the estate in South Sussex. More than 140.000 visitors, some in historic costumes streamed to the probably most famous classic car event.

The "Saint Mary´s Trophy" is the most popular race, featuring classic cars from 1950 to 1959. A Gaz Volga M 21 (build 1959) was the favourite of the spectators.
Highlight of the runnings was the "royal automobile club TT Celebration" with the changing of the drivers during the run. Part of the race was Jochen Mass and the only former female Formula 1 winner Desire Wilson.
The run "Glover Trophy" is supposed to be the run with the best sound of speed, allowing Formula 1 racers build between 1961 and 1965.

But Goodwood Revival is not only about racing. The atmosphere in the gigantic park is unique. Visitors wear costumes of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Even the kids take part and dress up in historical costumes. A real eye-catcher is the "Ladies Day" on Saturday, where female visitors wear hot pants, mini skirts and the looks of the 60s and 70s.

Not far from the racing track, the Earls Court Motor Show has been reconstructed faithfully. And who didn´t have his outfit for this years event , had the opportunity to get a new costume at the Revival Market, to be ready for his time trip in 2012, if the slogan is again "welcome tot he time capsule"!
