GOODWOOD REVIVES GLORIOUS PAST
The 22nd Goodwood Revival Meeting took place in superb late summer weather over the weekend of the 13th – 15th September recreating the ambience of the 1950s and 1960s where period dress is actively encouraged with many displays and fine detail touches making the event feel like a real step back in time. The former RAF Westhampnett airfield opened its gates for motor racing in 1948 and for the next eighteen years the high speed circuit played host to many of the sports more famous and infamous moments such as Aston Martin’s 1959 RAC TT victory after a pit lane fire with which they won the world championship and Sir Stirling Moss’ horrific accident in 1962, parades to commemorate Aston’s win and Sir Stirling’s upcoming 90th birthday were held over the weekend along with the Mini’s 60th anniversary and also a tribute to the Cooper Car Company which saw Sir Jackie Stewart take the wheel of his 1964 Cooper T72 formula three car. After the last competitive meeting in August 1966 racing stopped until in 1998 the then Earl of March decided to restore the circuit to its former glory recreating the era of his grandfather the 9th Duke of Richmond, the brainchild behind the circuit, and the Revival was born with the first hugely popular meeting taking place 50 years to the day from the very first event in 1948 and is now one of the jewels in the crown of the historic racing scene.words Stephen Carpenter EDP Photo News.
