The resurrection of the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit was completed recently, and the first event to be held at this
phoenix-like track was a Revival Meeting, sponsored by many great names as Aston Martin, Jaguar, Ford, Honda,
"Old Speckled Hen", MG, Omega, Chrysler, Shell, Ford, Louis Vuitton, Veuve Clicquot and the RAC.
Revival Meeting in unique atmosphere
This particular historic racing event which was meant to virtually revive the glory days of 1950's and 1960's motor
racing at Goodwood was promoted as the "most stylish and most exclusive" one of its kind. Cars to be entered in
the event had - of course - to have been built not later than 1966, and every person wishing to enter the paddock had
to be dresses in 1960's fashion (for gentlemen, at least jacket, shirt and tie were obligatory if period fashion was not
on hand). There were no cars at all allowed to enter the paddock which were built after 1966 - even the track's doctor
drove around in a period Mercedes-Benz.
