September 3rd – September 11th, 2017

 The Goodwood Revival is the only major sporting event in the world to take place completely in period. Furthermore Goodwood is the only classic circuit in the world to be entirely in its original form and the whole site has been maintained and dressed to be exactly how it was in the heyday of motor racing – perfect in every detail. It is the ultimate experience – a magical step back in time to a different era, celebrating both motor racing and flying. You will enjoy the thrill of watching the world’s most exotic and valuable historic racing cars being driven absolutely on the limit. The event is an intoxicating mix of incredible machinery, extraordinary driving, fabulous fashion, and the glorious noise and atmosphere of the world’s most evocative cars and aircraft.

We start our program with a stay in the Midlands, the original hub of the British car industry. Based in wonderful Stratford upon Avon we take day trips to visit the Jaguar and Morgan car factories, car museums and two restoration shops involving Aston Martin. A major addition to this year’s tour is a day with the Jaguar ‘Classic Track Experience’ where we visit their Heritage Centre and get to drive a C-type, XK140, E-type, 4.2 Mk II and an XF on the famous MIRA test track. We have also added an extra day to allow for some leisurely touring through the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds.
