THE famous motor circuit at Goodwood is ready for thousands of visitors set to descend for the first day of this year’s Revival.

Drivers will compete for the Sussex Trophy which caters for World Championship sports cars and production sports racing cars from 1955-1960, such Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lister and Maserati.

For the first time the Sussex Trophy will be a two-driver race and will finish at dusk.

The Goodwood Revival experience is not complete without a trip to the high street which has a coffee house, barber shop and hair salon and a Tesco store.

The Goodwood Barbers will be open for business, with Eddie Stenner helping men step back in time and ensure their hairstyles live up to their costumes at his shop on the High Street.

From quiffs and mod-style cuts, to short back and sides, Eddie and the rest of the Goodwood Barbers team will help attendees get one step closer to the event’s Best Dressed award.

“Working at or visiting Goodwood Revival is like being on a giant film set, so people really go all out to make sure they fit in,” said Eddie.

“From racers and engineers to exhibitors and members of the general public, our eclectic mix of customers has even included a Spitfire pilot and former Pink Floyd roadies, meaning we get some amazing stories being told in our barber shop.”

Eddie and his 1963 Lambretta TV 175 will also be taking part in the procession of 100 mods, led by Quadrophenia star, Phil Daniels, in the morning.

Revivalist can expect to see Pussy Galore’s helicopter, a full-size replica of Stonehenge and Brighton Pier, racing legends such as Derek Bell
