GOODWOOD REVIVAL - More than 30 WWII aircraft confirmed
More than 30 WWII aircraft at Revival
When the major anniversaries of WWII battles come around, we are passionate about marking them with suitably poignant displays. The Freddie March Spirit of Aviation exhibition at the Revival in September will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and we will have more than 30 aircraft on the ground for you to get up close to, including Supermarine Spitfires, Hawker Hurricanes and the world's only airworthy Bristol Blenheim.
We also have more news on the motoring side of the occasion, with the 50th anniversary of Shelby's world sports car title, giving us an excuse to bring together the largest ever collection of Shelby Daytona Coupes ever produced for a demo at Goodwood. Another world-first for you to savour.
For the all the latest news on this must-see event, please read below. You can also like us on Facebookand follow us on Twitter for regular updates, news and competitions.

Is there any better way of bringing together a chap's Revival outfit than with a stupendous moustache or beard? If there is, we don't want to hear it. Bring on the facial hair!

RAFBF chosen as charity partner

If you want to really immerse yourself in the the Revival then book a table in the Goodwood Mess for your group, where you'll be treated to a stream of theatrical parades on top of the drama on the track.
Gallery: "Leather? How very 'fifty shades', darling..."
It's not all tweed and greased-up overalls at the Revival, there's also a healthy dose of leather. Take a look at this gallery and get inspired by the bikers at the Revival.

This beauty was actually photographed at the 73rd Members' Meeting but it continues the gallery series that began with a flurry of photography at last year's Goodwood Revival.
