Got a couple of problems looming so will probably have to sneak in in the pesky Alfa! WMU's Oil cooler has sprung a leak.

Is everyone making the effort to dress up in period clobber...?

Nice to dress accordingly for Goodwood (not fancy dress) I always feel that the people who don't bother look very out of place, it's no effort for a guy to put a shirt and tie on with a Jacket is it ? (I always look forward to most of the ladies outfits, on the ladies that is :lol: )

Whe are bringing the mini on a trailer.

As the engine is still not running in, it would be a error to drive it down. Wouldn't imagine sitting on the side of the motorway with a broken mini and not participating to the revival...

It's not compulsory, but if you decide to come in modern civvies, you will certainly regret it.

It really doesn't take any effort & only adds to the atmosphere & the feeling that you are taking part.

Avoid the stupid fancy dress option. A pair of trousers with a chequed shirt, striped tie & jacket, blazer or anorak is perfect, flat cap or trilby tops it off nicely, but is by no means essential.

I have a different outfit for each day :lol:

Agree with other posts, if you turn up in civvies you will stand out! I remember trying to meet up with Islandblue one year and normally the phrase ' i'm the one n the fedora' would single him out but not at Goodwood!!

Leather safari jacket at the ready!! (or maybe just boiler suit this year)

Changing your socks does not a new outfit make! :lol:

Also, to get into the paddock you'll need a tie anyway (or a cravat, if you are that way inclined) though they often have one you can 'borrow' - what is known as a 'punishment tie'

For anyone driving a classic Mini into Goodwood each day, arrive early or make sure your cooling system is ok!...... as entry traffic queues are usually building at 7am and can become a nightmare long wait by 9am. Visitors in classic cars are usually directed by special signs to their parking area and can escape at least some of the queues of modern cars on the back roads. Personally I have never felt the need to wear 1950's jacket/tie type clothes to the Revival or felt out of place as a result but each to their own, of course the event does also cover the 1960's period when more casual clothes became common attire......

As said for central Paddock access dress code rules do apply:-
"While you're not required to dress up (unless you qualify for central Paddock access, in which case a jacket and tie is necessary for gentlemen, and a dress or suit for the ladies), you'll feel much more involved if you do."
