The Goodwood Revival will take on a new look when it returns from 17-19 September, with a host of changes to the venue’s layout.
Madgwick, the long first turn, will gain both a new viewing area close to the paddock and a pedestrian bridge crossing the circuit.
The long Lavant Straight that brings the cars back towards another lap will also have more viewing spots and a retail area designed to recall Westhampnett in the infield. Military displays will be dotted here, too, celebrating the heritage of the former RAF base.
Near to Woodcote, the right-hander at the end of the ‘straight’ and before the final chicane, will be restoration projects and stalls in a new Make-Do and Mend area.
Meanwhile the Hurricane Lawn behind the Woodcote grandstand has gained an allotment, and the Drivers’ Club will move to beside the Earls Court Motor Show. The switch means the themed space will be open to the public for the first time – previous staged topics have been Wembley and a dinosaur dig.
A Festival of Britain will greet spectators through Gate 2 behind the start/finish grandstand, marking 70 years since the 1951 event across London and beyond. A London Victory Parade will be held on the Sunday of military vehicles, and even a marching column.
Further details are expected soon, the organiser says.
