In Pictures: Motoring fans step back in time at the Goodwood Revival

A Spitfire and Ferrari were among the displays at this year’s event at the Sussex motor racing circuit.

Transport enthusiasts have been visiting yesteryear as 2018’s Goodwood Revival got under way in West Sussex.

The three-day festival celebrates the cars and motorcycles which were in vogue during the Goodwood motor circuit’s original period from the late 1940s until 1966.

Many of the spectators get fully into the swing of the festivities by dressing to suit their favourite historic period.
