Aliens at Goodwood Motor Circuit

A mystery that is out of this world has once again descended on the Goodwood Motor Circuit just two weeks before the annual Goodwood Revival – the world’s most authentic historic motor racing event – gets underway (14-16 September).

Not for the first time, mysterious crop circles have appeared in the wheat at the legendary West Sussex motor racing circuit.  The crop circles were discovered during final preparations before Goodwood opens its gates to 136,000+ excited motor racing enthusiasts on Friday 14 September.

The Revival is renowned for the IFOs (Identified Flying Objects) that traditionally appear at the event, with dramatic air displays scheduled this year to include Spitfires, Mustangs, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the only airworthy Canberra. 

UFOs are a rather less common sight at the Revival, however, although sightings have previously been made of unidentified objects in the skies over the event.  Numerous reports and images can be found on the internet of a UFO sighting at the Goodwood Revival on 5h September 2003.  The aliens must have enjoyed their previous Revival visit so much that they obviously did not want to miss out on the Goodwood celebrations this year. 

For us earthlings, a limited number of Friday and Sunday tickets are still available for the 2012 Goodwood Revival, with access by advance ticket only.
