These are the beautiful GT cars that, in days gone by, contested the famous Tourist Trophy races. The motorcycles are back out again too, as are the saloon cars, as well as a mouth-watering array of historic Formula One cars and sports cars of the 1950s and 1960s in an action-packed programme of wheel to wheel racing. In the air, as ever, will be the Spitfires and Hurricanes that flew from Goodwood to fight the Battle of Britain. The day culminates in the Prize Giving ceremony where Lord March awards his much-coveted prizes and medals. Memories are made of this.

And whether you go for the slick urban look, gentrified country style or chocs-away military look, it’s not difficult or costly to dress appropriately.
