Goodwood Revival set to roll back the years with nostalgic on-track thrills

In what is an annual motorsport celebration of yesteryear, the 2019 edition of the Goodwood Revival is set to be bigger and better than ever as it roars into life this weekend (September 13/14/15), with a host of new races, classic cars and motorcycles all set to feature.

Billed as one of the best-loved events on the motor racing calendar, the three-day spectacle is set to transport fans back in time spanning countless decades and subsequently showcasing a variety of different motoring eras.

As has been the case for a number of years, the British Automobile Racing Club continues in its organisational role by appointing marshals and officials, as well as ensuring the smooth-running of the meeting too.

With celebrations taking place for Mini and Bentley, with their 60th and centenary anniversaries being marked respectively; large fields are expected for both marques as they take centre stage.

Alongside the traditional centrepiece races such as the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration, St. Mary’s Trophy and Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy, two new races have been added to the already impressive race schedule for the weekend.

The Earl of March Trophy will see 500cc Formula 3 cars from the 1950s will go head-to-head whilst the Brooklands Trophy will be a celebration of Bentley, with pre-war vehicles set to duke it out for victory.

As always, a host of top-name drivers will be in action during the event with former IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti one of the headline announcements to be confirmed leading into the event.

Jeff Gordon, Dani Pedrosa, Tom Kristensen, Jochen Mass and David Brabham, amongst many more, have also been announced too.

Over the course of the three days the on-track action will be accompanied by fashion shows, auctions, fairground attractions, static car displays and trade stands, ensuring that there is fun for all the family throughout each day.

Goodwood’s official YouTube channel will stream all the action across the weekend for fans that aren’t able to be trackside. To ensure you don’t miss a second of the action from the 2019 Goodwood Revival over the course of the weekend, click here.
