The new race for A series powered pre '66 Sports and GT cars is quite interesting - The Weslake Cup. Anyone know if this will include some of the Mini specials like the DART, Jem, Marcos, Ogle, Unipower or Deep Sanderson? Are front wheel drive permitted?

It's goody, they suggest a dress code in some bumf, but I was in jeans and rally jacket the year I was there- what could be more 70s/80s?

rwstokes should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I've gone in black jeans everytime I've been and never had an issue. Tend to wear a shirt but without a tie, jumper and then a modern coat as it will be artic.

I have read the dress code as smart outdoors stuff which seems to work out well.

What a farce
Agreed, it's bad enough that golf clubs still have a dress code, let alone a race meeting, any race meeting.

Sorry Guys, I really think you are making a mountain out of a molehill here!

You see a lot of peeps at the Revival in modern togs, shorts etc., but understandably they don't get into the inner paddocks so attired. The MM is more relaxed than that, and most dress for the weather- it is mid March after all! If that means jeans, fleece, gloves, ski-hat, wellies and coat / anorak then so be it.....

I love Goodwood but the whole pantomime thing is daft. If people want to dress up that's fine- and plenty do - but to make it compulsory at the Revival is absurd. I used to go to the Royal Opera House quite regularly and whilst I dressed smartly I didn't have to - no dress code .

And as somebody who attended race meetings in the late 60s I can report no sightings of faux Marilyn Monroes , Mods or RAF Squadron Leaders - a donkey jacket or Barbour was the norm , with a Park Drive drawing well - and that was just for the girls...

It is not compulsory at the Revival! Read my previous post above...... The inner paddocks have a dress code, but you can walk round anywhere else (including all the other paddocks) dressed however you like.

Sorry to be Mr Pedant but ...if by 'inner paddock ' you mean the part of the paddock which is accessed by a paddock pass then there was certainly a strict code when I last visited with my wife. Despite wearing a smart blazer, silk shirt, cravat and smart trousers she was told by some possibly over zealous official that she couldn't go in as she wasn't wearing a skirt..... Not a wise move on his part - she got in.

If I may quote verbatim from the Goodwood website 'What is the dress code? As with any exclusive club , the MM is intended to be stylish and relaxed - and informal yet smart event with everyone asked to respect the dress code'

Anyway - I am sure I will enjoy it . I don't expect to feature too much in the ..ahem ..house system - I developed an allergy to all that stuff at my very minor public school . So much so that its main symptom was praying for Lindsay Anderson's film 'If ' to have been a documentary ....

We agree then! The (inner) paddocks at the Revival that require a pass have a clearly defined dress code. That code does not apply to the general public areas, although enthusiastically encouraged by all the PR.

MM publicity also encourages a certain standard of 'dress', but as mentioned by several posters, no one seems to have suffered by choosing to wear their choice, or to suit the conditions!

The house system and games are completely lost on me, not having attended a public school. Again, not compulsory.....

It would appear that plenty of people will go and are willing to pay the price so that's their choice. I doubt they'll be disappointed based on past experience.

Those that don't want to pay the price can just moan about it or simply go to cheaper events and enjoy those. All about personal choice really no matter what our respective planets are.

Didn't realise I was one of the rich elite though. Blimey that's good news.

Hope Peter's bikini is bullet proof because some of his "grid neighbors" seem to come from the racing Who's Who! Roberto Ravaglia, Gerhard Berger and their band are gonna play good music !
Seem that the game will be played "à guichet fermé" because the site announces everything is sold.
