The annual revival sees road racing cars and motorcycles on display that would have competed during the circuit’s original period – 1948-1966.

Celebrtities including comedian Rowan Atkinson have already been spotted enjoying the events at the world’s biggest historic race.

But it is not just the motorsport that brings the atmosphere to the Goodwood Revival.

There is plenty to see around the circuit – including a barbershop quartet who sing timeless songs of the nostalgic era.

The racing was as enthralling as always

The racing was as enthralling as always

Visitors yesterday enjoyed toe-tapping music from Revival Big Band, My Favourite Things and five-piece vocal trio Elle and the Pocket Belles.

Off the track, there were fox furs, hats of all shapes and sizes, sunglasses, colourful dresses and uniforms.

While some dressed for the austerity of the 1940s, others went bigger and bolder in 1950s dresses and smart 60s styling, competing for the Goodwood Revival best dressed prize.

Many people were shopping for treasures on Revival’s High Street and over the road where traders were selling fashion pieces. Children were pushed around in vintage prams, and one boy even rode a donkey through the streets of the Goodwood Revival.
