This year’s Goodwood Revival is set to build on the success of last year’s event, when a record-breaking 146,000 people attended over the weekend.

Doors will open at 7.30am for the second day of historic motor racing and period atmosphere.

With vintage sports cars going head-to-head for celebrity two-driver races including the Whitsun Trophy, Freddie March Memorial Trophy, St Mary’s Trophy and the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy.

Sports car racing will also get underway from 10am with the Fordwater Trophy, Sussex Trophy and the Madgwick Cup to look forward to.

Due to the huge popularity of the inaugral Settrington Cup race last year, the 2013 Goodwood Revival will once again feature an unusually young grid of competitors. Running on both Saturday and Sunday, the race will see a full field of 30 Austin J40 pedal cars competing in this two day race, with the result declared on aggregate timing.

Warbirds will be seen roaring overhead at around 11.20am with the Bonham’s automobilia auction getting underway at 1pm.

A track parade in honour of Jim Clark, legendary racing driver will start at 1.35pm and the Bonhams auction will resume at 2.30pm.

Another air display will begin at 3.50pm and a Tour De France demonstration will take place at 4pm.

Bonhams auction will finish at 5.30pm, with the track closing soon after at 6pm – wrapping up another day of historic racing and entertainment.

More videos and pictures of the day will be on the Observer’s website.
