In Pictures: Classic motors and vintage glamour at Goodwood Revival

Nostalgics and motor racing fans alike have been flocking to West Sussex for the Goodwood Revival – said to be the UK’s only race meeting staged entirely in period dress.

The Revival seeks to recreate the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit, the spiritual home for British motor racing.

There is a fair amount of maintenance required, given the vintage of some of the motors on show.
