The 2021 Goodwood Revival is actually not that far away. Sure right now we’re gearing up to the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard and it’s just the beginning of what we hope will be a glorious British summer. But, before you know it, it’ll be time to don those outfits and head down to the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the 23rd Revival.
While the one-off SpeedWeek meant that some of the event’s flagship races – like the TT and St. Mary’s Trophy – carried on in 2020, this will be the first time we’ve been back together for the Revival for two years, and as a result we’ve pulled out all the stops to make this Revival’s racing action some of the best ever.
What races are returning to the Revival?
The weekend is of course headlined by the traditional races, the RAC TT Celebration for GT cars, the St. Mary’s Trophy for touring cars, the Glover Trophy for F1 action and the glorious Sussex Trophy’s beautiful sportscars. The Whitsun Trophy for unlimited sportscars, Richmond Trophy for front-engined F1 cars and Brooklands Trophy for 1920s and ‘30s sportscars all return as well.
Are any Revival races changing for 2021?
Before we detail every single race, we’ll just set out some of the significant changes for ’21. Firstly, the Goodwood Trophy becomes the “Festival of Britain Trophy” for this year, but still features the same mix of pre- and post-war Grand Prix machines. The Freddie March Memorial Trophy will bring the event to an end with its sportscars of the 1950s on Sunday evening and the St. Mary’s Trophy will be a competition for saloon cars of the 1950s, with the 1960s cars having taken centre stage at SpeedWeek.
The Kinrara Trophy is back, but with a new name. The most valuable race in the world was renamed in honour of Mr Motor Sport himself for SpeedWeek in 2020, and will retain the new Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy name for 2021. The 2021 Chichester Cup will feature only front-engined Formula Junior cars.
Are there any new races at Revival 2021?
The John Whitmore Trophy will celebrate the mighty Mini Cooper with a, quite possibly bonkers, 45-minute, two-driver race, which we full expect to be absolutely spectacular. Indeed if the Betty Richmond Trophy of 77MM was anything to go by, there could be some fireworks. So, without further ado, here’s every race you can see at the 2021 Goodwood Revival.
