HOME » Magazine » » » Goodwood Revival Programme Announced

Goodwood has announced its full list of races for the Revival, which will be held on 6-8 September this year.  As each year, there have been a few tweaks to the programme and cut-off dates.  The small bore sportscars are back in the Madgwick Cup and the Fordwater has reverted to cars of the late ‘50s.   This year, the Sussex Trophy for large capacity sportscars will open the proceedings with a one-hour, two-driver race.  The St Mary’s Trophy moves up a decade and is for cars of the 1960s.  There will be no Formula Junior race, but the Earl of March Trophy will be for 500cc F3 cars.
