6 unmissable F1 cars at the 2023 Goodwood Revival

It’s impossible to get excited about the Goodwood Revival and celebrate the past glories of the Motor Circuit without talking about Formula 1. Although Goodwood was never an official venue for an F1 championship grand prix, F1 cars raced here for more than a decade between 1953 and 1963 in various non-championship events. The list of winning drivers includes Stirling Moss, Roy Salvadori, John Surtees and Graham Hill, while the cars that competed here rank among some of the very best of the era: the likes of the Maserati 250F, Ferrari 246 and Cooper T53.

There’s just something incredible special about the F1 cars from the '50s and '60s. The sport was still so young, the cars were sleek and beautiful, the drivers charismatic and skilful. There’s a certain romance associated with seeing these small, low-slung sliding through corners like Madgwick and Lavant, evocative memories of the original heroes of motorsport. We’ll get to experience that all over again in just a couple of days, here are six unmissable F1 cars you’ll be able to see at the 2023 Goodwood Revival.
