Ladies Day and Fashion:

The sight of race-goers smartly dressed in their finest 1950s and 1960s-inspired fashions is one of the vital ingredients that make the Goodwood Revival so unique and thoroughly entertaining. The Revival remains the only motor sport event in the world to hold a dedicated Ladies Day (Saturday 19 September), with spot prizes of champagne being awarded to the best dressed women by an expert panel of fashion judges.

As part of Goodwood’s celebration of 50 years of the Mini car, the mini skirt will also be honoured at the Revival, with visitors (preferably female) encouraged to wear their best mini skirt with special Ladies Day prizes being award to the best skirt and leg combo.

To meet the huge demand for 1950s and 1960s fashions and paraphernalia, the popular Revival Market has been extended out across the road from the main Goodwood circuit entrance, near the enormous Revival Car Show, to cater for more specialist exhibitors.

It took a great deal of determination on the part of women to sweep aside male resistance from the inner circles of the motoring world. But this book on sale now from Veloce Publishing captures some of their finest moments from 1888 to 1970 - a veritable saga with a wealth of illustrations spanning almost a century of motor racing - FAST LADIES contains detailed descriptions of over forty of the daring, brave women who took part in speed records events, rallies and Grand Prix races during that time with over 400 colour and mono photographs and would make a great present for some lucky lady on Ladies Day.
