i have never been before so is it 50's or 60's. mid 60's same (as my car) is way different to early 60's as it almost Beatles and Mods look as opposed to tweeds and cardigans. chalk and cheese.
which is right and if anyone has a clue why, so i get it.

Your choice I think, Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney in 'Two for the Road' or Beatles or flower power?

Hi James,

We will be joining the group at the revival on Friday for the Euro event. I have booked my own tickets/car park entry.
Could you please add me to the list.

To be clear...
The Revival Meeting is to recreate the period when the track at Goodwood was used for car and bike racing. This was from 1948 to 1966. So lots of de-mob suits, military uniforms, teddy boys, mii-skirts, mods and rockers. Too early for hippies and flower power! "Period" is of the track, not your car!



Gents

1940’s Fashion

For men, the wartime austerity resulted in the Utility suit, with its distinct lack of pleats, sleeve buttons and patch pockets. For men and women, accessories such as hats, gloves, scarves, cravats and waistcoats were vital to lift their rather drab mend-and-make-do outfits.

A man in uniform is always a pleasing sight for the ladies, so why not wear an Army or RAF uniform from the period – in keeping with Goodwood’s WWII RAF history?
1950’s Fashion

In the 1950’s men opted for sleek hairstyles, narrow and sharper cuts for their suits, moved away from hats, embraced casual knitwear, khaki trousers and blazers. The influence of pop culture had a pronounced fashion influence – the anti-authoritarian Brylcreem-enhanced Teddy Boy burst onto the scene, rock ‘n’ roll reverberated through the fashion world and the Mods emerged.

Why not try a debonair look by wearing a blazer, turn-up flannels, accompanied by a cravat, a Panama or Homburg hat; and don’t forget a touch of Brylcreem – of course. Accessorise with a rolled-up umbrella, cigarette holder or eye-glass and finish off a top-class and sophisticated look that Cary Grant or Terry Thomas would be familiar with.
1960’s Fashion

Suits drifted away from pale, toned shades, menswear was now bright and colorful. It included frills and cravats, wide ties and trouser straps, leather boots and even collarless jackets. Ties were worn even five inches wide, with crazy prints, stripes and patterns.

For that dandified look opitomised by Brian Jones, try wearing a crushed velvet or stripped double-breasted suit, brocade waistcoat and a shirt with frilled collar. In the late 60’s the androgynous hippie look was in style. Both men and women wore frayed bell-bottomed jeans, tie-dyed shirts, workshirts, and headbands.

Perhaps you might prefer a mechanic’s white cloth overall (with charcoal for oil stains), leather boots, and accompanied by a flat cap, leather belt and clockwork stopwatches.


Ladies


1940′s Fashion

The shortage of fashionable fabrics – and the loss of design direction from Paris – resulted in the rise of ‘Utility Fashion’ for ladies, defined by knee-length skirts, sensible flat-heeled shoes and square shouldered jackets that recalled the cut of uniforms.

A Girl in Uniform – For that post WWII era, why not try a uniform, always a smart and neat alternative! Be a WREN, land girl, police woman or nurse for the day!
1950’s Fashion

With clothing and cloth rationing but a dim memory, the 1950s ushered in a bold and glamorous look, headlined by the glossy styles of post-war Paris. The result was tailored hourglass-accenting cuts and a smart polished look.

For that sophisticated couture look, epitomised by Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, try wearing a voluminous dress clinched with wide belt, slender high heels, glamorous hat with matching sleek gloves, and seamed nylon stockings. If the classical style of the English country garden is more appealing, how about a floral summer frock or twin set and pearls and matching tweed suit, accompanied by a ‘church’ hat, fox fur, small handbag and gloves to match.
1960’s Fashion

The political and social upheaval of the 1960s was reflected in its groundbreaking fashions – it was a decade in which the bikini, mini skirt, bell-bottom jeans and Capri trousers made their debut, and it saw the clash of the Mods and the Rockers. Carnaby Street and Chelsea’s Kings Road influenced the fashion world, Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton dominated the catwalk and fashion fully embraced the sex ‘n’ drugs ‘n’ rock ‘n’roll mood that defined the Swinging Sixties.

For that Jackie Kennedy look try a short boxy suit in pastel colours with oversized buttons. If you’re inspired by top models of the day such as Twiggy, Colleen Corby or Jean Shrimpton, try a velvet mini dress with lace collars and matching cuffs topped off with false eyelashes and pale lipstick.

OK... Here's a question...

The GATES for Goodwood Revival open at 07.30am. Track action starts from 08.45

It's about 80 minutes drive from the hotel to Goodwood

What time should we be leaving the hotel ?

It'd be nice to arrive in a group (or groups) bearing in mind that
a) not all of us are quite as old car mad as others and it might be a long day...
b) there MAY be drink involved on Thursday night and
c) the later we leave, the worse the traffic is likely to be

I'm currently thinking 08.15 but open to offers from you!

Local info: the traffic will be horrendous around Goodwood so earlier the better I guess.
Do we get to park on site or in the adjacent fields?
Also most local restaurants/pubs will not take orders after 9pm and may
require booking in advance on a Friday night.
There is nowhere within walking distance of the Rhinefield House Hotel.
Looking forward to meeting all
Cheers

Sitting in endless traffic queues ringling slowly towards the area is pretty useless...
IMHO better to suffer an early rise/departure in order to reach the parking area in good order

Thanks Larry

If I recall, the tax-free parking (Pre-74 now?) is by the entry gate. OK, there'll be 4000 other old cars parked in the field but it IS the field closest to the entry gate

Hi guys, I have been on the Saturday and Sunday for the past two years and can say that the traffic is not too bad between 8-10am. Maybe about 20 mins to get to the pre-74 car park from the surrounding roads. Also, it is Friday that we are going, so there will be less traffic anyway for Goodwood, but you may get local rush hour traffic from especially around Southampton and Chichester. Also, as mentioned before, bear in mind that it will be a long day if you want to stay till the evening...

The marshals usually direct you to the first available space in that car park, unless we request to park in a designated area, but I guess we will have to request this before hand. Given that this is a very large field, I wouldn't have though this would be an issue, especially on Friday.

In any case, it will be a great opportunity to meet you all!

Thanks

The plan is to arrive as a group - question was, what time is acceptable to leave the hotel to get there bearing in mind people
a) want breakfast
b) are sort of on holiday
c) need to get dressed up
d) want to avoid the worst of the traffic!

I believe that "Revival" traffic is far less than "Festival" traffic and Friday should again be less busy  than the Sat & Sun,
so would expect a post breakfast start to be ok.

But we are willing to be guided by those with more experience in these matters.

Late Bird :D

James,
Is there a possibility convincing the hotel to provide breakfast already a bit earlier for us that Friday?
Let's say 6.30 or so? :o
I mean we are quite a few people at their location... ;)

I think, the earlier we head off, the better. And I am saying that as a typical late bird. But I definitely do not want to get stuck in traffic jams again ... with divaesque overheating ignition coils or so ... :P :P

Just my 2 cents ....

As an aside on the Friday to Goodwood, does anyone have a spare seat?  My wife is not attending that days event and taking the hire car so if there is a passenger seat vacant with anyone, i would be keen to be the co-driver. ;)
