Goodwood Revival 2006 - The runners and riders

In just three weeks' time the gently rolling Sussex circuit wil reverberate to the sound not only of racing engines, but jazz bands, aero-engines and high heels on immaculately swept tarmac. It's the Revival and if you still haven't booked some tickets perhaps this list of drivers may be the final reminder.

Below is the very latest news about Who’s Driving What at the Revival, that will be held at the motor racing circuit on 1, 2, 3 September. The Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration and the St Mary’s Trophy races offer two very challenging and different aspects of motor racing and bring lots of excitement to the sport. The Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy race is the only motorcycle race of the weekend but brings some modern racers together with some classic machines from the 1950s.
