Goodwood Revival 2011: the pictures

  1. Goodwood Revival 2011

    Now the fug of burnt Castrol GP50, wiring fires and charity shop-sourced tweed’s settled, we look back on a brilliantly vintage weekend of hats and racing at this year’s sell-out Goodwood Revival.

    For the uninitiated, the event’s an enormous classic car and bike show on the grounds of Goodwood House. Visitors are urged - sometimes by force - to wear period garb and pose about a bit. So it’s a bit like being beamed into the 1960’s, only in colour.

    And it’s very good fun, as these pictures will testify…
