Up to 200 classic cars will have the best seats in the house at the Goodwood Revival Meeting in September, but it won't come cheap!
Goodwood is introducing a special classic car park for pre-1966 vehicles along the Lavant Straight that will be called the Hawthorn Infield Parking and will offer owners the opportunity to 'become an integral part' of the event.
To get into the car park, owners will have to be on-site by 8am on Friday (8.30am on Saturday and Sunday) and will not be able to leave until the circuit closes each night.
As for price, Hawthorn Infield Parking will cost £70 for Revival Friday and £90 per day for Revival Saturday and Sunday, on top of your entry tickets.
However, because all Revival tickets for Saturday 14 September have sold out, a major incentive is the fact that the Hawthorn Infield Parking is the only way to gain entry that day – applicants will be given special dispensation to buy a Saturday admission ticket.
Pre-1966 vehicle owners wishing to book a space in the Hawthorn parking for that, or any other day are advised to telephone the Goodwood Ticket Office as quickly as possible on 01243 755055.
Here are the rules from Goodwood:
The Hawthorn Infield Parking is an additional attraction to the Goodwood Revival, and customers will still need valid general admission tickets in order to gain entry into the event. Only vehicles with the dedicated Hawthorn Parking label will be directed to the infield parking entrance towards the Lavant Straight by traffic marshals. They will enter via a dedicated gate, and all vehicles must be on-site by 08:00 on Friday and by 08:30 on Saturday and Sunday at the very latest. The special entrance (Gate 11) will open each day at 07:00. Vehicles will not be able to leave the Hawthorn Parking area until motor circuit track activity has finished for the day.
Vehicles that do not meet the pre-1966 credentials of the Hawthorn Infield Parking (regardless of whether they have the correct Parking label), or arrive too late, will be redirected to park in a nearby public Car Park.
Tickets (Saturday sold out) and further information for the 2013 Goodwood Revival can be found on the Goodwood website, or via the ticket hotline 01243 755055.
