The Goodwood Revival is an annual homage to racing from yesteryear. Hosted at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex the weekend sees a glorious mix of motorsport, fashion and music. Crowds of up to 100,000 flock to the circuit to immerse themselves in 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s motorsport culture.
The Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy sees 1960’s motorcycles race wheel to wheel, with the bikes’ owners along with current and past professional racers put the bikes through their paces.
Some of the Desert Rose Team had the opportunity to take part in the Track Opening Parade each morning which was an absolute honour. Patsy was riding a 1950s Matchless instead of her usual fully spec’d rallye bike, with Shelley riding pillion, whilst waving at the massed crowds, Joe had the chance to ride a friend’s 1940’s Norton, with Lucy perching side saddle totally trusting his riding. Paul was able to ride a 1960 Rickman Metisse.
