Recently, Goodwood proudly announced the return of Jenson Button to this year’s Revival. Goodwood Motor Circuit will once again host the Formula 1 World Champion on September 18, Sunday.

It was at the 2021 Revival that Button made his historic racing debut. In a Jaguar E-Type, Button participated in the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy with Alex Buncombe. The two was again seen participating in the RAC TT Celebration in an AC Cobra.

Before the September event, Jenson Button will also be seen at the 10-year anniversary celebrations of the popular Settrington Cup. He will be a judge in the Race Flag Competition wherein the design competition winner will get the chance to drive The Duke of Richmond’s Austin J40 pedal car. The winner will be using the pedal car at the Goodwood Revival event, and they will also be invited to be part of the Settrington Cup Testing Day which will be held in July.
