With quite some time since Goodwood put on such a show we were curious as to how the event would unfold. Our expectations were high, there’s always great racing to be enjoyed here, and friends to catch up with, and I was curious if (like my old Fiat) things might have been a bit rusty. No fear – the 2021 Goodwood Revival was perhaps the best ever.

From coffee and an off-camera laugh with Geoff “Blofeld” (and his cat, above), a natter with Mars Dilbert and her chap Kingsley, and pics with the Rocker Division who are always game for a laugh, we explored the paddock and pits.

I implore you to watch the St Mary’s trophy, you can see it on Youtube here, along with other excellent video coverage of the day. At Bonhams I ogled an ISO Grifo and Lancia Aurelia, and saw the new Radford elsewhere, Jenson Button stepping aside with a smile so I could get a shot without his arse in the way. There was cycling interest, too, as Eroica Brittania will be based from Goodwood in the future. That’s another event we love, although my knees are still creaking from the last one in the Peak District on my bicycle bar.

Huge thanks to those who helped to put on such a good show. We’ll be back next year. Shameless selfies below;

If you enjoyed this, come and find us at The Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive, we’ll be at the Worcester launch at the Morgan Motor Company, a #DriveDapper event for men’s mental health charity. See here for more info.
