GOODWOOD REVIVAL 2018 – THE BEST OF INSTAGRAM

If you’re a historic motorsports fan then, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’ll know it was the Goodwood Revival this past weekend.

2018 marked the twentieth anniversary of the Goodwood Revival bringing racing back to the Sussex motor circuit and, if you’re like me, you’ll have no doubt been all over coverage of the Revival this past weekend.

This year’s three-day classic car festival seems to have been bigger and better than ever before – with 15 races in various categories on the race card. Including the usual glorious mix of sports cars before the circuit closed in 1966. The festival’s annual closer, the Sussex Trophy featured sports cars that raced from 1955 to 1960—so no Lightweight E-Type Jags!

The highlight for many came as the sun began to set on day one of the Revival. Billed as the most expensive grid in the World, the Kinrara Trophy is for closed-cockpit GT racers with engines larger than 3.0 litres, and features many of the most iconic of 60’s GT sports cars. A race I finf myself watching either with a smile on your face or through my fingers!

Sadly, work & life meant I couldn’t make it to Chichester this year. But thanks to Goodwood embracing the modern world, I saw more than my fair share of the racing online and waded through the thousands of pictures shared on social media.

Given how much time I spent sat in front of the computer or with my phone in hand (with apologies to my wife & kids!), I thought it might be appropriate to do a little retrospective, to give you a flavour of the weekend’s festivities, in social media posts.

I hope you enjoy!

Oh, and don’t forget, you can find Retro Racer on Instagram here!
