The Clicquot Run >>> Stage 4 > Day 2 at The Goodwood Revival & the Atlantis Gala Ball at the Goodwood Aerodrome
Day 2 of the Goodwood Revival had arrived. After breakfast on the beach, and a few group photos in the bag, we all piled into our chosen cars and headed over to the racetrack. Saturdays at the Revival are inevitably the busiest day of the weekend, seeing car enthusiasts and drivers come from miles away to soak up the atmosphere, swoon over their dream cars and meet the drivers and mechanics in the paddocks…

Today I chose to ride in Gautier’s Porsche 356…
We made it to the track just in time for my favourite race, the Settrington Cup. A two part race held over Saturday and Sunday, these Austin J40 pedal cars were raced between 1949 and 1966. Rumour has it Prince Charles began his racing career in a J40, apparently his car has been kept safely at Sandringham, perhaps for the day Prince George is old enough to drive it. Amazing to see the children’s parents run along the track willing them on. I tell you, those kids know how to pedal! Can you spot my 6?!

Early evening and it was time for us to sprint to the Goodwood Hotel for a quick costume change, we were off to the Ball!

‘Enter The Lost & Mysterious City of Atlantis’…
The Earl & Countess of March invite you to enter the Lost City of Atlantis at the Goodwood Aerodrome.
I’ll just leave these final few photos for you to imagine the evening. With 100 tables each seating 10, the Aerodrome was quite a sight. The costumes were incredible, the atmosphere, electric, put it this way once dinner had finished, it took just seconds for the entire dance floor to completely fill. What an amazing night.

Thank you Veuve Clicquot for the most memorable weekend. It’s one thing spending the weekend at the racetrack, it’s quite another driving from Paris with a team of such fabulous people. I couldn’t have imagined a more wonderful weekend…
