Goodwood Revival 16th- 18th Sept 2011
It's the Goodwood Revival from 16th -18th September and this year 140,000 people are expected at the event.
The motor circuit near Chichester is being taken back to its heyday - all the cars racing will be vintage and everyone dresses in 50's and 60's clothing.
This year there's even a retro Tesco store full of products like Marathon bars, Opal Fruits and Treets.
A record dozen or more Spitfire aircraft are also due to fly over Goodwood skies on Sunday the 18th September as a tribute to the 75th anniversary of the British aircraft.
And over 70 star drivers and riders will be attending the event. The well-known faces from various motor sport disciplines includes Formula One stars, rally winners, endurance racing champions, tin top tearaways and top bikers.
Touring Car talent will be campaigning hard in 1960s saloons in the St Mary's Trophy race, including DTM star (and eight-time Le Mans winner) Tom Kristensen, four-time World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx, and BTCC legends John Cleland, Anthony Reid, Paul Radisich, Darren Tuner, Alec Poole, Tony Dron and Patrick Watts.
These tin top racers will be joined by Scandinavian rallying greats Stig Blomqvist and Rauno Aaltonen, plus ex-Grand Prix stars Martin Brundle, Emanuele Pirro, Jochen Mass, Derek Bell, Richard Attwood, Tiff Needell, Desire Wilson, Brian Redman, Jackie Oliver, Vern Schuppan and Arturo Merzario, who are all sure to entertain the Revival spectators.
Many of these famous faces will also be racing wheel-to-wheel in more powerful machinery at the Revival, including the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy Celebration race, and the Fordwater Trophy, which this year is being held exclusively for competition Jaguar E-types as this iconic British sportscar celebrates its half-century.
Expect to see Red Bull F1 team principal Christian Horner, Red Bull Chief Technical Director Adrian Newey, ex-Ferrari F1 driver Gerhard Berger, Jaguar's 1988 Le Mans winner Andy Wallace, and Peugeot's endurance ace Nicolas Minassian. Goodwood stalwarts Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, Murray Walker and Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams will also be in attendance.
Motorcycling heroes will include Isle of Mann TT stars Charlie Williams, Trevor Nation, Mick Grant, Ian Simpson, Chas Mortimer, Cameron Donald, Stuart Graham, Stan Woods and Keith Amor, plus World and British Superbike riders Andrew Pitt and Michael Rutter.
