Not to be confused with the Festival of Speed at Goodwood, which is held every year in the same place, but on the contrary that the event is a Revival, is set in the calendar at the beginning of summer.
If in the Festival of Speed is held every year thousands of fans to the speed of all the ages, in the Goodwood Revival the main theme is only and exclusively the classics. In an authentic journey to the past that is not seen so well illustrated as in this quote in any other event on the planet.
This weekend, from Friday to Sunday, the estate of Lord March will be dressed in gala attire of the era, as they are not only the vehicles are the protagonists. The whole environment surrounding the festival, including participants and spectators, you’ll have an aesthetic game with the motive ‘oldies’ of the british event.
