Chichester, West Sussex, PO18 0PX
The opening day of the Goodwood Revival, culminating in a race into dusk
First glance Friday
The Friday of the Revival gives guests the first chance to see all the cars, bikes and aircraft on show, as well as the thematic celebrations taking place across the Motor Circuit.
The day begins with a spectacular aerial display of vintage Warbirds and ends with the Kinrara Trophy race - the most expensive grid in the world. In-between is an action-packed schedule of qualifying for the weekend's races, where the drivers and riders are pushing to the limit for the best possible position on the grid.
Most expensive grid in the world
The Friday evening Kinrara Trophy is one of the highlights of the weekend. The cars are some of the most exotic still racing, with hordes of rare Ferraris, Jaguars and Aston Martins in action. The value of the grid extends into the hundreds of millions of pounds, but this doesn't hold back the drivers!
Racing into the dusk
The Kinrara Trophy is not just the most expensive grid of the weekend, but it is also the only one that races into dusk, with headlamps ablaze. Described as a “photographer’s dream” during the 2018 running, it’s a spectacle not to be missed.
A busy schedule of qualifying
Friday offers the chance to watch virtually all of the qualifying sessions, making it the most varied day of track action. This is your chance to see the drivers pushing to find the limits of their cars for a better spot on the grid.
A grand reveal
Friday is your first chance to see the Revival site and all the spectacular set dressing that has been specially created for the weekend. See it all for real before it's revealed on social media!
Don't be fooled into thinking all the fun takes place within the Motor Circuit: cross the bridge ‘Over the Road’ throughout the day for food, music and shopping, or head there after racing for an evening of fun and festivities. Also open on Thursday evening to all valid ticket holders.
What's new for 2019?
As part of a display celebrating 60 years of the world’s favourite small car, coach built Minis previously owned by Beatles Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr will be on show for all to admire.
The focal point for Goodwood’s D-Day commemorations will fall also on the Goodwood Revival this year, with a Douglas C-47 Skytrain conducting a breath-taking parachute drop in honour of those who fought.
First glance Friday
Friday's highlight, at the end of a busy day of practice is a spectacular one-hour Kinrara Trophy race into the sunset - the most expensive grid in the world.
A full day of qualifying and final racing including the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy bike race and the hugely popular St Mary's Trophy saloon car race. Warbirds including Spitfires take to the sky.
Sunday is THE day for racing lovers and those who prefer to soak up the atmosphere off-track. Only the best and final races occur on the Sunday, including the fastest race of the weekend, the Whitsun Trophy and the world famous Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration.
