VISITORS are getting ready to step back in time to enjoy the second day of the biggest historic motorsport meeting at the Goodwood Revival.

Doors will open at 7.30am with a fly past from the P51 Mustang at 8.30am.

Vintage sports cars will be going head-to-head for celebrity two-driver races including the Whitsun Trophy, St Mary’s Trophy and the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy.

The Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy is a two-part, two-rider challenge, featuring bikes from the 1950s, including iconic names such as AJS, BMW, BSA, Matchless, Norton and Velocette. With one race on Saturday at 2.15pm and another on Sunday, the result will be decided by aggregate timing and each owner-rider will be paired up with a professional racer, changing over in the pits around half distance.

Visitors can also look forward to the Shelby Cup, the Chichester Cup and the Settrington Cup.

The Settrington Cup will feature another grid full of 30 Austin J40 pedal cars competing in the two part race on Saturday and Sunday with the result declared on aggregate timing. Saturday’s race will start at 11.40am.

There will also be historic aircraft on display with 30 aircraft lined up including some from the 1920s, including the de Havilland DH82, the huge Douglas C-47A Dakota and the Auster 5, which took part in the D-Day landings.

This year’s Goodwood Revival will also commemorate the bravery of members of the military during the Second World War with flyovers expected from the Lancaster Bombers, Spitfires and Hurricanes at 11.30am.

There will be a Sir Jackie Stewart track parade at 1.50pm and a track parade and high-speed demonstration by Maserati 250F.
