The Goodwood Revival Meeting, takes place from the 12th to the 14th of September and once again, there will be plenty of vintage cars for all to see on the track.
Jaguar will have a major presence Revival, with the 60th anniversary of the legendary Jaguar D-type will be marked in style at Goodwood. On Saturday 12 September, the Lavant Cup race will be dedicated to the D-type with more than 20 examples of this legendary competition Jaguar competing in the first-ever motor race devoted entirely to the D-type. Ex-Jaguar Le Mans winner Andy Wallace will be competing in a 1955 ‘long-nose’ D-type alongside some other familiar faces, including fellow ex-Le Mans winner Derek Bell.
On Revival Friday and Sunday, a spirited parade of D-types will take place around the Goodwood circuit, with a record number of examples of the racing Jaguar gathered in one place.
In addition, another 25 or so Jaguars and Jaguar-powered cars will be competing wheel-to-wheel at the unspoiled Goodwood motor circuit over the Revival weekend, with racing C-types and E-types, plus Mark I and Mark VII saloons out in force.
Aside from the cars we also don’t want to forget about the 40s, 50s and 60s icons who will be out on the track that include:
Formula 1 World Champion (1969, 1971, 1973) Sir Jackie Stewart
Five-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Derek Bell

Grand Prix and Le Mans winner Jochen Mass
Maserati is also continuing its year-long centennial celebrations at the Revival. The Italian car marker founded by the Maserati brothers in 1914 in Bologna will be showcasing some of its rarest and most beautiful models from its rich sportscar heritage. As well as marking 100 years at the pinnacle of automotive engineering, Maserati are also honoring the 60th anniversary of the legendary 250F Formula One racing car.
In the main paddock, the legendary Maserati 250Fs will take center stage in a recreation of the 1954 pit lane from the famous Italian race circuit – Monza – which played host to the iconic race car. 16 examples of the car will be on display at the event including an ultra-rare V12 model. The 250F is no stranger to Goodwood, having been victorious at the race circuit in the 1950s. Sir Stirling Moss once hailed the 250F as the most beautiful looking and user-friendly Formula One car ever built.
As well as race cars Maserati will be displaying a series of historic road cars, including the 1961 3500 GT Vignale Spyder and 1969 Ghibli Tipo AM115.
