THE SUN has shone on Goodwood Revival today, and thousands have dressed up for the occasion.

Rosalind Riceman and friends (pictured) were celebrating her hen do in true vintage style.

She said her maid-of-honour had arranged the hen-do as a surprise, ahead of her wedding in February.

And there was plenty to do at the vintage motoring festival today (September 13), with hundreds of classic cars on show and on the track.

Even racing legend Derek Bell and TV chef James Martin were at the track, ready to race.

With a makeshift Stonehenge, Brighton Pier and a vintage Tesco store dotted around the track, there was plenty to see at Goodwood.

Vintage pop-up shops were selling their wares and there was entertainment at every corner.

On the track, The Settrington Cup was won by William Tyrrell this morning, when youngsters took to the track in their Austin J40 pedal cars.

Katherine Taylor came second and John Milicevic came third.

The Goodwood Trophy saw cars raced up to 1951 zoom around the track, and Mark Gillies took the top spot in an ERA A-type R3A from 1934.

Next was the Chichester Cup where David Methley came first in a 1963 Brbham-Ford BT6.

In this afternoon’s St Mary’s Trophy Part One, for saloon cars which raced in the 1950s, Justin Law took first place in a Jaguar Mk1 from 1959.

There was then a track parade in tribute to Sir Jackie Stewart.

The next race was the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy, a two-rider race for motorcycles which raced in the 1950s.

This was won by Beaton and McMartin on a 1950 Vincent Rapide.

Still to come is a high-speed Maserati demonstration and three more races.
