18/19 MAY 2019


Retro Rides Weekender is back in action at Goodwood on 18th and 19th of May 2019. Unique paddock displays, track action on the Saturday, auto solo on the Sunday, new "Deadline" display area, a huge variety of retro cars on display all over the site on both days and Sunday's track based club displays we're coming back bigger and better.

Tickets are £10 in advance per day (£15 on the gate). Weekend tickets including camping are £45. 16 and under go free. Get your tickets here!


Our curated paddocks continue our principle of a 'temporary museum', bringing in a unique selection of cars to the show from. Our themes for this year will start to be announced in January 2019.

On Saturday we're running the track in a sprint and will have the legendary diverse selection of machinery taking part from modest machinery to fire breathing monsters. This is your chance to get on track at Goodwood. We open up the track booking in March

On Sunday we're keeping the action going with an auto solo to test your car control. Expect squeeling tyres and some burnt rubber

Relish the beautiful venue and the a diverse selection of retro vehicles we'll have spread liberally around the grounds. Be part of the display area, we don't do "applications" for this, it is based on first come first served so get your entry in and get your pre-96-ish car on display. We represent the full range of cars from world beating show stoppers, track weapons, pristine classics and daily driven retros. We are here to celebrate retro cars and the people that own them in all their varied forms.

Our new "Deadline" area will take pride of place outside the iconic Goodwood garages, if you've got a build that you are planning to bring out next show season then drop an application to us. We're picking a range of cars from across our world of Retro Rides to be on display.

Sunday we turn the track over to clubs to put their best foot forwards; space is limited to get your application in early. We're also changing the shape of the club space this year in order to make the event flow better and give everyone a chance to see everything.

This year we're improving our camping experience, with the campsite moved to along the edge of Lavant Straight, improved toilet and shower facilities as well as a proper bar on Saturday evening alongside food and entertainment.

Awards are at 3:00pm Sunday

We've re-arranged the trade space this year to give us more room to put more cars on site, because that is what ultimately we're all about.


We will begin to announce our paddock displays in January.


Do you have a build that your are completing in 2019? We want to hear from you. It doesn't need to be the first time the car has been out, although we would of course love that, but if your build or major rebuild is coming out in 2019 we'd love for you to be part of this. The display will be outside the iconic Goodwood garages - so a great chance for a photo or two. To apply to be part of the Deadline display log in to our events site and submit the little form.


Goodwood is a beautiful venue and it is vastly improved with a load of cool old cars spread around it. If you've got a pre-96-ish car and want to display at the show you just need to log in to the events site and fill out the form, get your ticket and you are good to go, this isn't an 'application' we want the diversity of cars to be as wide as possible.


Sunday sees us turn over the thr track to club displays, everyone is welcome from a group of friends with a handful of cars to those rolling in with thirty or more. All we ask is that they are all predomininatly pre-98 and certainly nothing newer than 2000. To start a club stand log in to our events system and fill in the form. Cars for the stand need to be pre-booked, so each car will need to fill out a form on the events site too. Once your club is registered it is very easy for cars to add themselves to it and for you to keep track of who has been added.


We've got two chances to see cars in action and get in on it yourself at our 2019 Weekender. On the Saturday we'll be running track again in a point-to-point sprint. On the Sunday we're running an Autosolo - which is a bit like an Autotest but without all that reversing in to boxes. Full details of both of these will be released in the new year with track applications opening up in the middle of March.


For 2019 our camping is much improved, with a totally new location and facilities within the venue, a Saturday evening bar, our charity 'tat' auction and more. Weekend tickets include campsite and full show access.


We've moved our trade location for 2019 which we believe will be a big improvement. If you wish to trade at the event please fill out an application form and we'll be in touch.
