Bremgarten circuit pits at Goodwood Revival

September 2012

Goodwood Revival is always one of - if not 'the' - annual motoring highlights, with selected anniversaries celebrated each year.

2012 saw the 75th anniversary of the German GP cars visit to Great Britain in 1935, at Donnington. Goodwood marked this historic event with the largest gathering of the legendary 'Silver Arrows' seen since those prewar days, and entrusted The Period Garage with the responsibility of creating a suitable setting for the live display.

This took the form of a line of 12 racing pits, based on the iconic design of those used at the prewar Bremgarten circuit. Following research, the traditionally built timber and corrugated roof structure occupied an 8 week build period and included reproducing the special plaques with team and driver names, as well as the 35 metre jettied canvas banner.
