Surely in order to prefer something you must have experience of the alternatives? There is probably no alternative to the Revival in terms of breadth of cars and drivers taking part, Le Mans classic is a superb experience but for obvious reasons the car categories are limited.

IMOP I'm not bothered who drives what car. The grid sizes you don't get for obvious reasons although would cool to see 50 cars racing, would be a little chaotic though. For example I'd rather go to the upconing monza classic where you can see 250 LM's ,Cobras E Types, and others that feature at Goodwood whilst also being able to see Group C and CER1 and 2 etc without as far as I know waiting ages in between, no ponce as a general spectator in regards to clothes and the like.Bigger more varied grids in some cases. Plus you see the cars more often .

Yes I'd love to go but I can think of many others I' choose over it.

I'm probably going over already discussed issues but hey ho.

Wish all who go a good event. I'll be recovering from first day back at college .

Itís reasonable to think that Goodwood Revival,Le Mans Classic,Silverstone Festival .Monaco Historicís and Monterey are the top historic meetings worldwide .
Itís impossible to compare because a case could be made to argue that Spa 6 hours beats the lot.
Weakness of Goodwood is that circuit is no great shakes and only used for twenty years in period.
My mate is driving the single seater Alta in Pre War race and should pull his finger out and finish at the front!
All have a good time as I will be in France.We will get asked back with Talbots one year perhaps.Until then they will stick with a few real cars,few replicas and specials and ,what did Peter call them,pedestrian drivers.

Make no mistake - there are no finer sights in historic racing, and no finer place to see those sights, than at Goodwood. You have to go once, walk out to the far side of the circuit and see for yourself. Nothing else comes close. Whether you keep going back once the irritations start to bug you and you start to tot up the costs is another thing all together.

You missed the bit about Ď in my opinion Ď
So the view at Lavant is superior to Eau Rouge or under Dunlop Bridge
Throw in Casino Square.?
The grids are superior at LMC , Monaco , Spa ,
Longer Races at the other places and they are safer.
Always a good thread
Those who do think itís the best and people who donít buy that position
Been going on for nearly twenty years!

Each to our own. Some will like one thing and another a different thing.

Joy of motorsport is the variety of events, locations and range of cars that are on show. What makes it so interesting and debatable

Whatever is most enjoyable to watch and fits your budget.

I'll be laughing if they both go together for me.

Point taken. Afraid my horizons don't go beyond the UK these days. But you get so close at Goodwood that the experience is truly visceral.

Have to agree, but if youíre confined to the UK then Goodwood is the best place to see some of the best cars. Limited to Pre 67 at the Revival, which limits appeal for many.

We are lucky to be well served with historic events so can all chose which suits us best!

It's different isn't it? The lack of fencing means the view is better than many locations and the close racing is always exciting. Can it compare to Monterey, Spa (I haven''t experienced Le Mans Classic) or Le Mans?

Well the picnic atmosphere at Goodwood is certainly a draw as long as the weather holds up, but ultimately watching cars through Eau Rouge with the aroma of waffles, sausages and frits wafting around certainly has a lasting appeal.

BTW, haven't been to Monterey either.

From a spectating point of view you would have to go a long way to beat Cadwell Park! Obviously there are severe restrictions on the racing grids because of the circuit constraints but nevertheless it's super viewing watching an HSCC meeting in summer.

Pity there is not a big historic meeting at Brands
Much more historic circuit than Goodwood and great viewing.
