Goodwood Revival (13th - 15th September 2019)
The romance and glamour of motor racing as it used to be! The Revival is the only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress and is a return to the halcyon days of Goodwood as the spiritual home of British motor racing.
It’s an unabashed celebration of flat-out wheel-to-wheel racing, around the sweeps and curves of this classic circuit, which remain unchanged since its heyday. The inaugural Revival opened on 18 September 1998, when the Earl of March drove around the circuit in the Bristol 400 in which his grandfather, the 9th Duke of Richmond, opened the track 50 years before. It’s now the world’s most celebrated historic motor racing event, with race fans coming from all over the country to soak up the unique atmosphere in period costume.

BTCC Final Round, Brands Hatch GP (12th - 13th October 2019)
A natural amphitheatre offering unrivalled views of the action from various vantage points, Brands Hatch is known as one of Britain’s best-loved motor racing circuits. Its unique combination of dips, cambers, fearsome corners and hills means it is still one of the world’s most renowned racing venues. The BTCC has been going to Brands Hatch since the series began back in 1958.
The BTCC calls into Brands Hatch for both the season-opener as well as the finale, which takes place on the majestic Grand Prix circuit. The historic Kent race track has seen some spectacular BTCC entertainment over the many years the championship has been visiting. It has been the scene of several nail-biting showdowns with high drama and unpredictable twists and turns aplenty, seeing the title battle ebb and flow over the course of an unmissable day’s racing.
