DAY 6 FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16TH
The first day of the Goodwood Revival and if you
haven’t been before, the best day to see what it’s all
about as the crowds are at their lowest. Friday is
Practice Day so every car that will compete over
the next two days will be on the track and late
afternoon there is a one hour race into the sunset.
We will leave the hotel after an early breakfast to
secure a car park as close to the entry gates as
possible. This will be the plan for the next three
days although travel time is reduced on Saturday
and Sunday as we miss the business day rush hour.
Your GPS has been set for Car Park “C” which is
the closest to the main entry gate. If its raining (it
is England!) or you have some mobility issues
there are shuttles that roam the car park all day
and can drop you at the car park exit gate. The car
park is HUGE so don’t forget where you parked.
Your program has been pre-ordered so just
present your vouchers (vouchers are in your
folder). Once inside turn right to the various
grandstands and markets, and straight on will take
you into the tunnel under the track and to the pits
and more entertainment.
“OVER THE ROAD”
Don't be fooled into thinking all the fun takes place
within the Motor Circuit. If you cross the bridge
taking you - literally - Over the Road you open the
door to a whole world of frivolity.
Live performances add a buzz of glamour to the
Revival with many of these performances taking
place Over the Road and there is plenty of seating
from which to enjoy this retro and retro-inspired
music. There’s fairground rides, a roller disco
and any number of eating and drinking spots.
After the races are over and night falls, the Doom
Bar is a particularly popular place for a spot of
dancing and excited chatter, with live music and
real ales until 2230hrs (2130hrs on Sunday). It is
not only the Revival High Street that offers guests
the chance to pick up unique memorabilia and
interesting gifts. Over the Road features a host of
excellent stalls, mainly made up of motoring or
vintage related wares.
If you think that the Revival is just about cars,
today may very well change your mind with period
machinery of all shapes and sizes, incredible
aircraft displays, live music, dancing and fashion
recreating the golden age of motorsport. Many
Revival visitors go to great lengths to dress in
period style and achieve that authentic look
playing a key role in making the Revival such a
unique event. While you're not required to dress
up, you’ll feel much more involved if you do. So if
you didn’t bring your tweeds and trilbies or frills
and frocks, today is the day to hit the Revival
Market and the Revival High Street.
Dinner is your choice this evening.
