On the weekend of 7 to 9 September 2018, outstanding classics from the BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad brands will be presented to visitors of Goodwood Revival.

For the past twenty years, fans of historic motorsports have eagerly anticipated the stylish classic motor show at which historic racing cars, often piloted by well-known drivers, are once again put to the test. Memories of the spectacular car and motorcycle races that were regularly held on the local circuit between 1948 and 1966 will be revived in the grounds of Goodwood House, the estate of the Duke of Richmond.

Goodwood Revival is the only historical motorsport event to be staged entirely in period dress

Historic backdrops and an authentic ambience − from the starting grid to the outfits of the drivers and teams − await visitors. Fascinating rarities won't just be presented on the racetrack. The exhibition halls in the style of the traditional London car dealership Kevill-Davies & March will have a glamorous atmosphere that characterises the show and film business of the 1950s.

The highlight will be the BMW 507 that Elvis Presley drove during his military service in Germany. Believed to be lost for decades, the roadster of the “King of Rock’n’Roll” was rediscovered and painstakingly restored and presented to the public for the first time in 2016 at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach.

Another emblem representing the new enthusiasm for luxurious locomotion that was ignited in the 1950s is the BMW 503 Convertible. The four-seater appeared just a few months after the two-seater BMW 507 and, like its stablemate, was powered by an eight-cylinder engine.
