ENGLAND & the GOODWOOD REVIVAL

September 3rd – September 11th, 2023  SOLD OUT
September 7 - 11, 2023 Revival Only Still available to book



The Goodwood Revival is the only major sporting event in the world to take place completely in the 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 touring in the Midlands and Southern Cotswolds, the original hub of the British car industry. We enjoy this remarkably beautiful region while visiting the Jaguar and Morgan factories and some notable museums. Two exceptional visits include an Aston Martin restorer and a private tour of the Williams Formula 1 Museum and Trophy Room. We have two sets of hotel stays, one at Stratford-upon-Avon and one at Oxford. Both are first-class classic English hotels.

Morgan

September 3 & 4– Stratford-upon-Avon – Heathrow arrival and transfer to Stratford upon Avon. Our hotel, the Stratford, is in the heart of the town. At dinner, we are joined by Le Mans winner and Porsche Test Driver, Richard Attwood. Scheduled are visits to the Jaguar and Morgan factories. Also, visits to the Gaydon British Automobile Museum, plus a small village garage that has morphed over the last hundred years from a smithy to a funky garage museum. The cars are mainly unrestored classics, the original signage alone will amaze you. Dinner, one night, will be in a 16th century coaching Inn. Previous diners were a certain Mr & Mrs. Shakespeare.

September 5 & 6– Oxford – Moving a little further south, we are welcomed at the De Vere Oxford Thames hotel for the next two nights. We are excited to be offering again, this glorious Medieval hotel set on thirty acres of parkland on the banks of the River Thames. Following our check-in, cocktails will be served on the lawn, followed by dinner in the classic restaurant. Our day in the Oxford area naturally lends itself to the Aston Martin marque. A very well known restorer, raconteur and demonic racer, Desmond Smail shows us his quite dramatic work- shops where he rebuilds, refurbishes and sells Aston Martin road cars from DB1’s to pres- ent day. Want a DB7 Zagato? Bring your checkbook! We also schedule visits to a number of private collections and refurbishing shops. Tonight dinner at an Oxford riverside restaurant.


Racing Cars

September 7-8-9-10-11 – Goodwood – Based in nearby Portsmouth at the Marriott Hotel. En route from Stratford to Portsmouth, we visit Williams F1 for a private visit to their Museum and Trophy Room with lunch in their Hospitality suite. It’s then to Goodwood House for Lord March’s pre-Goodwood cricket match, ending in anamazing Spitfire air display. Dinner includes a guest speaker. Our first taste of the Revival also includes visits to the National Car Museum at Beaulieu. In the evening, we enjoy a typical English pub overlooking the channel.

People at Racing Cars

Both Saturday and Sunday, we are based in the ‘Ultimate Salvadori Suite’, the top Hospitality section at the event. The cars are racing through the chicane just a few feet from us. Each day, we are visited by racing celebrities, and are also accompanied through the Paddock with Derek Bell, a mine of knowledge.
