A RARE opportunity to take a trip back in time on the Goodwood race track is on offer on Wednesday (August 6).

Raising much-needed funds for bereaved children, famous drivers such as Tiff Needell and Andy Wallace will return to the motor circuit to take passengers on three laps of the circuit in classic sport cars.

All the money raised goes towards the West Sussex branch of Cruse Bereavement Care, as well as the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund.

West Sussex Cruse chairman Michael ‘Spike’ Milligan has been a regular at Goodwood Revival for the past 17 years.

“We want to support bereaved children within West Sussex,” he said. “This is going to benefit local children who have been bereaved.”

The money raised from the event will go straight towards training volunteers to help children.

The Classics on Track for Children event will include cars such as the Jaguar E-type, Aston Martin DB5, Ford GT40 and other regular cars from Goodwood Revival.

Registration on a first-come-first served basis starts at 11am on August 6, in the Goodwood paddock.

Passengers must be at least 14 years old and taller than 4ft 9in. They must contribute a minimum of £50 to charity, in order to experience three laps.
