    Included in this lot is an exclusive VIP experience at the 2022 Goodwood Revival

    The Goodwood Revival will once again host the world's greatest weekend of historic racing, set within the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit, which is transformed into a celebration of vintage fashion and glamour. Hosted in a trackside hospitality enclosure at the September event, the successful bidder and a guest will have a packed weekend of exclusive activities including a private whisky tasting, paddock tour, and an opportunity to get a driver's eye view of the event with a passenger ride around the circuit.

    The Goodwood Revival is the world's greatest historic motor race meeting, and the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme. More than just an unrivalled weekend of historic racing, it is an immersive celebration of a less disposable world, where "make do and mend" was a way of life rather than a casual slogan.

    The Revival is, at its heart, a celebration of craftsmanship and sustainability, from an age when possessions were made to last and be cherished. It promotes a thoroughly modern ethos – to "reduce, reuse, repair, restore and recycle" – in the most authentic way possible. All the cars are original, having been lovingly maintained since new, many of the outfits have been handed down through generations, and even the retailers specialise in pre-owned artefacts – everything from clothes and accessories to automobilia and books.

    It is, proudly, the world's biggest and most glamorous second-hand event, encouraging attendees to embrace its Revive and Thrive ethos.

    Goodwood Revival, Friday 16 - Sunday 18 September 2022

    This lot has been specially created and auctioned to raise monies for Race against Dementia, set up by three-time Formula 1 World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE, this charity supports pioneering research into the prevention and cure of dementia.
