Sell-out crowd of 148,000 enjoy Goodwood Revival 2014

This year's Goodwood Revival was a huge success with a sell-out attendance of 148,000 people.

The annual festival took place September 12-14 at the Goodwood Motor Circuit  the 17th time it has been held.

Highlights included the RAC TT celebration race for early '60s GT cars, a dedicated tribute to the career of Sir Jackie Stewart, the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar D-Type, which was marked with a 30-car parade and the Lavant Cup race.

Off-track re-creations of Brighton Pier, Stonehenge and BMW's 1950s Park Lane showroom combined to make the event the largest celebration of vintage culture in the world.

Lord March said: "The 17th Goodwood Revival drew a record crowd, who not only witnessed some of the most iconic racing cars ever built dicing wheel-to-wheel, but also celebrated the career of the legendary Sir Jackie Stewart and paid tribute to the bravery of all those from West Sussex who were involved in World War II.

"The sight of two Lancaster Bombers in the sky together at sunset is something nobody who was there will ever forget. My sincere thanks to everyone who came for their support and enthusiasm for the event, which continues to be cherished by enthusiasts of motor racing and vintage culture across the world."
