Unlike my previous years at this event, this year (thanks to some very good friends!) I was able to spend the whole weekend at Goodwood Revival in Chichester, West Sussex. For those of you who have never been, Goodwood Revival is a fabulous weekend where you travel back in time to experience the life of 40’s/50’s/60’s car racing. Those of you who are not dressed in the correct era are given odd and disapproving glances from those around you but don’t worry, there are plenty of shops and beauty parlours around that you can be spruced up in. And afterwards, feel free to do a little shopping in the 1950’s Tesco store, grab a beer from your local pub or sip tea in the Spitfire Cafe with soldiers and pilots as you hear the roaring sounds of engines from cars, motorbikes and aeroplanes all around you. Goodwood Revival is a truly magical place to visit, even if you’re not an engine fanatic.
And finally, I thought I’d just use this opportunity to brag and say how I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Soper, Sir Stirling Moss, Tiff Needell and Stefan Johansson who were all very lovely people! And I got to sit in my dream machine, a Ford GT40.
