DAY 1 @ THE GOODWOOD REVIVAL
the culmination of a fabulous first day of the 2014 Goodwood Revival,
it was Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen who came away with Sussex Trophy glory,
but a spirited second half charge by Bobby Verdon-Roe netted the
Ferrari driver and Nick Leventis the runner-up spot.
denying that a really special part of the day took place just before
lunchtime, as two Lancaster bombers flew together for the first time
since 1964, with these two mammoth aircraft flanked by a pair of
Spitfires and a Hurricane.
Once again our guests have done us
proud - everyone has been dressed impeccably and we've heard some
fascinating stories about where the vintage garments were borrowed,
bought or stolen (?).
There is a bundle of competitive action
still to come this weekend, so if you aren't with us on Saturday and
Sunday, make sure to follow all the action on our Social Stream
- a Wall of Fame for all the best pictures, videos and comments tagged
#GoodwoodRevival, as well as live streaming of the whole occasion.

Minshaw and Keen resist Verdon-Roe for Sussex victory
Minshaw and Phil Keen walked away with the first competitive win of the
2014 Revival, as their Lister-Jaguar 'Knobbly' finished at the head of
the pack in the Sussex Trophy.
Two Lancasters live up to their heavyweight billing
you ask people what their highlight of the day has been, you'll be
hard-pressed to find someone who wasn't left in awe by the Lancaster
display - it was exactly the kind of moment we treasure at the Revival.

has been a memorable opening day - and what better way to look back on
the atmosphere of jollity and japes than with a fine gallery.
