GOOD­WOOD RE­VIVAL

‘The instant you walk through the Re­vival’s ticket stiles you’re en­grossed in the mid-1960s. The at­ten­tion to de­tail is phe­nom­e­nal, from the strict cri­te­ria of the cars tak­ing part right down to the food pack­ag­ing used in the event’s pop-up branch of Tesco. You’re en­cour­aged to play an ac­tive part in it too, which is why it’s the only event in the clas­sic cal­en­dar where it feels en­tirely nor­mal to be sat along­side CCW col­leagues dressed as Fleet Street hacks, RAF pi­lots and spivs. It’s an event that rev­els in the spec­ta­cle of old cars, which is why in pre­vi­ous years there have been races ex­clu­sively for Jaguar D-types and pit garages stuffed with Ford GT40s. It’s won­der­ful es­capism you can in­volve the whole fam­ily in – I love it.’
