The famed Goodwood Revival historic car races are held annually each September at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England. The 2012 edition will be held 14-16 September, with the 50th anniversary of the AC Cobra and the legendary pre-war ‘Silver Arrows’ Grand Prix cars taking center stage.
The Revival relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit, which ranked alongside Silverstone as Britain’s leading racing venue throughout its active years between 1948 and 1966. During this time, it hosted contemporary racing of all kinds, including Formula One, the famous Goodwood Nine Hours race and the celebrated Tourist Trophy sports car race.
Today, for three days each September, this historic circuit stages a race meeting for the kind of cars and motorcycles that would have competed at Goodwood during 1948-1966. The circuit echoes to the spine-tingling bark of golden-age Grand Prix cars from the ’50s and ’60s, thundering sports and GT cars, as well as historic saloon cars and little-seen Formula Juniors.
