And where stars of the sport like Stirling Moss, John Surtees and David Coulthard chat with punters in the paddock and re-live the glories of a bygone era.
Topics covered in the book include the history and growth of the event; famous marques such as Jaguar, Mercedes, Porsche and Ferrari; great drivers - on two wheels and four - from Le Mans and Dragsters to F1 and classic bikes; commissioned articles from celebrity fans; and a comprehensive record of all meetings since 1993.

This book is a magical step back in time, a unique chance to revel in the glamour and allure of motor racing through the photographs by Uli Weber. Every year Goodwood stages a race meeting for the kind of cars and motorcycles that would have competed at this historic circuit during 1948-1966, offering visitors the opportunity to leave the modern world behind and join motor sport luminaries including Sir Stirling Moss, Richard Attwood, John Surtees and Derek. The internationally acclaimed photographer Uli Weber has realised a unique portrait of the event, the people and of the circuit that echoes to the spine-tingling bark of golden-age Grand Prix cars from the 50s and 60s, thundering sports and GT cars, as well as historic saloon cars and little-seen Formula Juniors.
