    2018 Goodwood Revival: Polishing the past, preparing for the future

    Color slowly fades from sunset at the Goodwood Motor Circuit like an aging photograph. The sun sets low on the southern England horizon like the high desert. Bright yellows edge toward a brassy orange, tip toward a sultry red, and effortlessly disappear from the day. The pits and paddock drip with...

  • TVR Griffith prototype, 2017 Goodwood Revival
    TVR returns with 500-horsepower Griffith sports car

    2017 Goodwood Revival final day in photos; seeing is believing

    The 2017 Goodwood Revival Meeting ended Sunday largely as it started: damp and dramatic. The weather may not have participated for the whole day, but the period racers from 1948 to 1966 did. Although there were several spins, loops, and wildly sliding cars, the event stayed mostly...

  • 2017 Goodwood Revival Day 1

    If, when you die, Saint Peter rolls up in a 1963 Ferrari 330 GTO and offers you a look around, you've done something right. The 2017 Goodwood Revival Meeting kicked off this weekend, with the first full day of racing on Saturday. It's the type of racing that God must do on his weekends too, but the one on earth is much more period-correct, and with better concessions. Mother Nature must be a gearhead, too. South England's frequent downpours held out long enough to spoil only one race for the day. They still drove Ford GT40s like hell in the rain, too. Hundreds of classic cars were on display...

  • 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB

    All Ferraris are special. And Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheelbase models are even more so. But an example whose pedigree includes three victories at the hands of legendary pilot Sir Stirling Moss? "Special" doesn't really do it justice.

    A Flock Of Ford GTs Being Driven Flat Out At Goodwood: Video

    If you made a list of iconic racecars, there would be a few vehicles that wouldn't even be up for debate for inclusion. A few would surely cause discussion amongst the creators of the list, but a handful would elicit nothing more than knowing nods and deep-seated appreciation. One of those vehicles...

    2013 Goodwood Revival To Honor 50 Years Of The Ford GT40

    In 1963, the Ford Motor Company came very close to acquiring Ferrari, which was (discreetly) up for sale. Ford spent a significant amount of time and money conducting due diligence, and the deal was close to signing when Ferrari suddenly broke off negotiations. Under the terms demanded by Ford...

    2013 Subaru BRZ: The Road To Goodwood

    The problem with driving a left-hand-drive car on the left side of the road--not the right--is that it becomes second nature too quickly, too easily. Five miles out of the Manchester airport, only a couple of U-turns and traffic circles missed, the 2013 Subaru BRZ I'm about to flog up and down the...

  • Silver Arrows line up at the Goodwood Revival

    This year’s Goodwood Revival featured a remarkable showing of pre-Second World War German Formula One cars, known as “Silver Arrows” for their distinctive bare-aluminum bodies. While seeing Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows run is impressive, seeing them run against cars from Auto Union (now Audi) is breathtaking. While many of the Mercedes Silver Arrows survived World War II, most of the Auto Union cars did not. Two Auto Union Type Ds were tracked down in the 1980s (one in Russia and one in the Ukraine), but each was nothing more than a bare assemblage of scrapped parts...

    What's the most fun you can have in a 2013 Subaru BRZ in Great Britain's Yorkshire Dales?
