Next Event: Goodwood Revival Festival, 14-16 September 2012

   AntikBar will be participating at this spectacular annual event from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September at Stand 97 in the Revival Market. We look forward to seeing you there! 

“The Goodwood Revival really is a magical step back in time, a unique chance to revel in the glamour and allure of motor racing in the romantic time capsule of the golden era of motor racing at one of the world’s most authentic circuits. 

The Revival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. It is the biggest and best historic motor racing party of the year. 

The Revival offers visitors the opportunity to leave the ‘modern world’ behind and join motor sport luminaries including Sir Stirling Moss, Richard Attwood, John Surtees and Derek Bell in an unabashed celebration of flat-out, wheel-to-wheel racing around a classic racetrack, untouched by the modern world.”

   Visit AntikBar’s News & Events page and the Goodwood Revival website for full event details including the race schedule, riders and drivers, circuit and vintage highlights (music, fashion, shopping), updated news, tickets and on-site accommodation.
