We are there on our usual Friday.
No dressing up, no 'over the road' or any infield 'attractions' just there for the cars. The evening race is usually a cracker.

Yes the Kinrara entry is stunning. Shame the GTO is a replica . Hope it does better than last year with its startline incident with a famous E Type if I recall.

Shame no LM's or the like in the TT now.

Busy month ahead in historics. Just looked at the calendar .

Bert, ignore all the razzamatazz stuff, you can get easily waylaid on your way round. There are restrictions on close up viewing in the main paddock unless you have a separate (and expensive) paddock pass which incidentally is the same at the Le Mans classic.
The massive attendance means a long hike from the car parking areas which are all clearly defined outside the circuit in adjoining fields and although there are tractor trailers running all day, it's very difficult to clamber aboard one particularly with a haversack and a seat as they always seemed to be full! In fact the car parks alone are astonishing with the wealth of machinery driven to the circuit, you could wander around all day just drooling at some of the road cars. There are big gaps between races which can give the opportunity for other activities but as with other big events the bulk of the crowd gather around the start/finish and along from Woodcote through to Madgwick so if you try to move around it's quite difficult. If you want to see the racing try anywhere from the exit of Madgwick through to St Marys, my favourite spectating point is at No Name, the kink before St Marys where the brave and talented can be seen at their best on track. I've been every year except one when I was laid up but then I'm biaised since it's only 15 minutes away! Oh and take all you want to eat and drink unless you're feeling flush!

I want to go and have a look at the vintage aircraft (I'm quite an avgeek) so that's one diversion I'll definitely take. I'm not sure how much of the other off track stuff is worth a look? I guess some of that continues after racing has finished for the day anyway as the site is open quite late.

Thanks - that's useful, I won't try that then! Is it all race paddocks that are off limits or only some of them?

I'm up for a walk so that's no issue - they used the revival car parks for the Battle Of Britain flypast thing a few years back and they were mud baths but I guess that shouldn't be an issue this year with the better weather we've had recently. Walking the circuit should be warmer than last time I did it - it barely got above freezing all day and the sleet/rain never stopped!

The big gaps are useful for re-positioning - as you say the 'non-race' crowds don't tend to move far so with a small bit of leg work a quieter spot should be easily found (St Marys and Lavant are currently my preferred options but I may re-assess based on what's in shot in the background).

Lucky man! This is the first time I'll have been to the revival (and only then courtesy of a gifted ticket). I'll be taking my own supplies of food/drink - I don't want to have to re-mortgage the house for a cup of tea

Through the pedestrian tunnel to the infield and the left round the back of the main paddock, the aircraft displays are always worth a look.

No just the main paddock where a lot of the more expensive/rare cars are, the F3, GT's and saloons are usually very accessible as are the bikes.

I'm up for a walk so that's no issue -
Needless to say really but walk round anticlockwise starting at Woodcote and you won't be bending your neck!

Lucky man! This is the first time I'll have been to the revival (and only then courtesy of a gifted ticket).
First time in 5 years that I forked out for a ticket - I've been lucky enough to receive a weekend pass in recognition of charity work on the Friday so this year it"s Sunday only for me, have fun! Oops! don't know what I did there

If you like old planes and they are still having the concours for them, that is definitely worth a visit. Entry into inner paddocks is usually members only (which you may be, of course), and gents have to wear jacket and tie, but you can still walk round the outside of them. The outer paddocks are free to roam.

So many side shows inside the circuit, but just as much going on the other side of the road! One day not enough to see it all...

Edit- sorry for repetition of other posts....

Well, it’s on the HRT calendar at the top of the page, so no excuse for anyone not knowing it’s on!

Sadly seems no tenthers except Peter (retrognome) heading that way this year, a situation not helped by Goody, Spa etc......

Not going this year, Goodwood never my lucky circuit, back in the mid early sixties never managed to race there, E type always failed scrutineering, one particular scrutineer took a dislike to me ,then stuffed the 26R just befor the chicane and and didn't bother after that, this year left it too late for the tickets but have a Mike Hawthorn parking ticket if any one has a pre 1966 car and doesn't want to walk miles give me a call.

Horses for courses really . . .all the histrionic 'events' have their pro's and cons. And in period they all had different races. Being predominantly a club racing circuit, Goodwood had a very broad church, although it still amazes me how many cars they invite that didn't race in period. LMC is a very well defined arena.

Goodwood do look after entrants very well, but its more work to play ball and do it all, properly.
