It’s that time of year when racing goes retro and this weekend sees the annual running of the greatest of them all – the Goodwood Revival.

Although mostly a car and memorabilia racing event, bikes again feature prominently with racing stars ranging from Michael Dunlop to Troy Corser, Freddie Spencer and even Dani Pedrosa taking part in the feature, two-race Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy.

 

 

Two-riders share a classic machine in each 25-minute race around the famous old Goodwood Circuit in West Sussex and ride machines ranging classic MV Agusta triples to Manx Nortons, Matchless G50s and classic BMWs.

This year Dunlop will be riding a Manx Norton 30M paired with Andy Hornby, MotoGP refugee Pedrosa makes his debut aboard a Paton 500, while multiple-winner Corser will again be riding a BMW R50S.

Other stars taking part include: James Whitham, Steve Parrish, Jeremy McWilliams, Mick Grant, James Haydon, John McGuinness and Steve Plater. Current TT racers are also turning out in force with Peter Hickman, Gary Johnson, James Hiller, Conor Cummins, Davy Todd, Michael Rutter and Lee Johnston all taking part – as are fast ladies Jenny Tinmouth and Maria Costello. See below for the full entry list.

 

 

The two-part Memorial Trophy takes part this Saturday and Sunday and begins with a Le Mans start whereby riders run across the track to their waiting machines and includes a compulsory pit-stop.

But there’s also much more to the Revival than star-studded classic bike racing. Held annually since 1998, the Revival is the world’s largest historic motor racing and vintage culture event with around 150,000 people, many in period clothing to give added authenticity, attending over its three days to enjoy its uniquely retro atmosphere thanks not just to the classic bikes and cars but retro events and entertainments, special retro shops and stalls and more all giving off a classic 1940s-‘60s atmosphere.
