The last, and busiest day of the Goodwood Revival (Sunday 16) was a fantastic finale to a wonderful weekend of motor racing and entertainment.

The circuit schedule offered up some of the most anticipated races, including the Brooklands Trophy, the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy, and finished with the Sussex Trophy, won by Julian Majzub.

The Richmond and Gordon Trophies saw the type of cars that raced in Formula 1 between 1954 and 1960 compete for glory once more.

Although many spectators could not be dragged from the excitement of the circuit, hundreds others perused the vintage stalls on offer and entered into the spirit of the period, dancing to rock and roll and reclining in the afternoon sun.

The high standards and inventiveness of period dress had certainly not deteriorated, with women clad in everything from pencil skirts, pearls and fox furs to the type of 60’s mini dresses worn by Twiggy. Men were still smartly clad in uniform, tweed suits and fur felt hats.
