2015 is also the year marking the 60th anniversary of Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s victory at the 1955 Mille Miglia in their Mercedes 300 SLR.

The Goodwood Revival is the event of the year for vintage racing and culture. Guests turn up in their best period outfits and enjoy great scenes of racing from yesteryear. This year the Revival will happen on September 11-13th if there are no clashes with the 2015 F1 race calendar.

The festival of Speed is not the only one honoring racing legends; the Revival will be honouring the 40th anniversary of Derek bell’s first of five LeMans 24 hours wins along with the legendary Bruce McLaren who was a race driver, engineer and race car constructor.

Tickets for both are already on sale here.
