Five reasons to visit Goodwood Revival on Friday

Freddie March Trophy

Each day of the Revival is packed with on-track drama and period style, so why should you come along on Friday?

Below are five reasons why it is the best day of the weekend to visit, but there is so much more too: hours of classic cars on the track practicing for the weekend, thousands of people wandering around in incredible period outfits and a whole host of areas set dressed just for the Goodwood Revival:

1. Freddie March Memorial Trophy

One of the most iconic races of the Goodwood Revival weekend sees an incredible field of cars compete as dusk falls on the Friday. The Freddie March Memorial Trophy would already be a real spectacle due to the quality of vehicles on display, but the way darkness falls around it makes it even more memorable.

2. Be the first to see this year’s regular features… and surprises!

Whether it is the Earls Court Motor Show, the March Motor Works or the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation display, you will be one of the first to see them. We have spent all year in talks with collectors and manufacturers to bring you an incredible array of vehicles and aircraft in one place.

At Goodwood we always want to surprise you, so prepare to enjoy many wonderful sights that we have not announced prior to the event. Some will raise a smile, others will enthuse your inner petrol-head – all will feature on thousands of Instagram feeds by day’s end! 

How does this sound?

  • Arrive and enjoy a hearty breakfast
  • Scour the market stalls for unique memorabilia
  • Take a look around the new Paddocks
  • First Practice on the Motor Circuit begins 0945
  • See more than 30 Battle of Britain aircraft at the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation display
  • Lunch
  • Stop in at the March Motor Works and Earls Court displays
  • Stroll down the Revival High Street
  • Enjoy a cool drink on the Richmond Lawn
  • Freddie March Memorial Trophy at 1815
  • Dance the night away Over the Road until late and go home happy!

3. See every car, driver, bike and rider in action

What makes Friday unique is that you can see every car, driver, bike and rider from all the weekend’s races. While most of the actual races take place on Saturday and Sunday, the lion’s share of the practices happen on Friday, so guests can see all the stars and their motors in action on the historic Motor Circuit…

4. First pick of the vintage memorabilia

Anyone who regularly visits vintage markets will tell you that the early bird gets the proverbial worm. As a Friday guest you will get first dibs on this unique array of automobilia, vintage clothing and other assorted car-related items at the stalls by the Revival High Street and Over the Road. Happy shopping…

5. Party the night away

It’s a Friday night so you can happily have a few drinks and a dance Over the Road, knowing that you can rest the next day and don’t have the prospect of work in the morning (apologies to all weekend workers…). We will once again have the Doom Bar playing music and serving drinks until late – definitely the place to be once the racing is over.
