The Goodwood Revival is a three-day nostalgia-fest on September 11-13, centred around spectacular historic racing action at the West Sussex motor racing circuit. The cars, fashions, atmosphere and even the shops are all intended to evoke memories of the era surrounding the circuit's heyday. Racing started at Goodwood in 1948, which ties in very nicely with the launch of the original Land Rover, and ended in 1966.
So, if you think your pre-1966 Land Rover is worthy of a place in the Goodwood parade, whether a Series I, II, IIA or Forward Control, make sure you head down to Dunsfold's biennial Open Weekend at the Springbok Estate in Alfold, Surrey (between Guildford and Horsham).
Land Rover legend Roger Crathorne, also known as ‘Mr Land Rover’, will be scouring the site for potential participants, from which Goodwood itself will then select the lucky 50. Subject to the stringent acceptance criteria, successful entrants will get an official invitation to parade in front of the crowds at Goodwood Revival each day, and tickets for all three days.
The Dunsfold Collection Open Weekend is equally magical, so even if you're not selected it'll be well worth the trip. Gates open at 9am on Saturday (June 13), and 9am-4:30pm on Sunday (June 14). Pay by cash on the gate, or buy your tickets in advance here.
