Goodwood Revival 2012

Yasmin and Simon were among the thousands who attended the Goodwood Revival in Chichester this past weekend.  The annual festival, advertised as “a magical step back in time,” celebrates the golden era of motor sports from the 1940s to the 1960s by offering its visitors the chance to see some of the most impressive vehicles of motoring history up-close and in action on the racing course.  Guests are invited to take in the full experience by dressing in period costume and leaving the “modern world” behind.

The Le Bons definitely embraced the spirit of the event, as can be seen in these photos.  Simon tweeted his highlights, which included a number of races, a tribute to racing legend Dan Gurney, and a reuniting of pre-war “Silver Arrows” Grand Prix cars, an experience which many found the most momentous of the Revival.
