Goodwood Revival

On Saturday we went with a couple of friends to Goodwood Revival which is a classic car racing event in Sussex in the south of England. We've been going every year for several years now and it's guaranteed that we will have a brilliant day!

For those who haven't heard of it, it's a classic car race weekend that celebrates car racing between 1948 and 1966 when Goodwood Racecourse was in its prime. All the cars are of the era and are all picked by the organisers for the event because they are extra special examples and so on. Plus (and this is the best bit for me) most people who attend dress up in the clothes of the era! Of course it covers quite a range of styles - post war 40s, military, 50s and 60s.

It's just an amazing spectacle and people put so much effort into looking the part - everyone uses their imagination. There are special acts too like the Dad's Army guys (some of them are the spitting image of the TV characters) and policemen, spies, taxi driver girls.

If you haven't been but get the chance to go, then go! Here are some photos....

You'd definitely see in the dark on that scooter!
