For a few hours work each day at this popular car race meet I was able to enjoy myself for the rest of the day at this festival that resembled a giant film set. The first ever car-race took place at Goodwood race track in 1941. For the last 20 years there has also been a Revival, where vintage cars or bikes race (and sometimes crash). There is a strict dress code for spectators who must dress in vintage or authentic-looking retro clothing from the 40s, 50s or 60s. Goodwood also employs a number of actors and entertainers who take on characters from those eras. More people belong to drama groups in Britain than they do football clubs, so it is not surprising that so many make an effort.
