    Jalopnik Article about the 2017 Goodwood Revival

    Ran across this article about a vintage automobile show and race that occurs annually in the UK. Tartan and tweed are mentioned prominently and one of the first pics is of a gent in proper trews and Prince Charlie. His shoes are probably an accommodation to the mud mentioned in the article. Apparently, the fancy dress is almost required (no jeans and t-shirts) and the costume seems to favor the years directly after WWII. It mentions that tartan is well represented and has its privileges (from the article):

    Tartan of every color flashed beneath the English sun. Between races, you had an opportunity to walk to the track, but only if you were wearing tartan.

    Lots of photos and some interesting history.
