This year’s Goodwood Revival will celebrate three of 2022’s big motoring anniversaries when it returns on 16-18 September.
A trio of track parades will complement the weekend’s 15-race schedule – as well as showcasing a wide range of classic machinery.
Bringing plenty of colour and aural entertainment will be a celebration of 75 years of Ferrari.
Appropriately, it is hoped that 75 Prancing Horses, all of which will be classic racing cars, will join this diamond-anniversary parade, meaning it will surely be a raucous, highly evocative run.
And spectators are in luck, because the Ferraris will take to the track on each of the meeting’s three days.
The next run represents quite a serious change of pace, because the Revival will also be marking 100 years since the launch of the humble Austin Seven.
To honour this centenary, the event will be officially opened each morning with a two-lap parade of more than 100 examples of this much-loved model.
These promise to be brilliantly varied, too, including everything from racing cars to military models, and even some Seven-based tractors.
This year also marks the 60th anniversary of Graham Hill’s first Formula One World Championship, and a parade of more than 40 of his racing cars will take to the track to pay tribute.
Graham’s son and 1996 F1 drivers’ champion, Damon Hill, will drive his father’s 1962 championship-winning BRM P578 during the demonstration, which, like the other runs, will take place on all three days of the meeting.
Also participating in the parade will be the Lotus 49 that powered Hill to the 1968 drivers’ title.
These will join the Goodwood Revival 2022’s packed timetable of 15 races:
- Freddie March Memorial Trophy (for sports cars from the late-’40s and early-’50s)
- Madgwick Cup (for sub-2.0-litre sports cars from 1948-’55)
- Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy (two races for ’50s ’bikes)
- Goodwood Trophy (for Grand Prix and voiturette cars from either side of the Second World War)
- Glover Trophy (for 1961-’65 1.5-litre Grand Prix cars)
- Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy (for pre-’63 GTs)
- St Mary’s Trophy (two races for production-based saloons from 1960-’66)
- Whitsun Trophy (for sports prototypes from 1960-’66)

And don’t forget to take time to enjoy the classic car parks and the rest off the off-track entertainment.
