The 2011 running of the Goodwood Revival is set to see motorcycles from the 1960s returning after a one-year gap to do battle through the sweeping curves of the Goodwood Motor Circuit, with a number of big name riders set to be in action.

Bikes lining up on the grid will include a wealth of home-grown favourites, include Manx Nortons and Matchless G50s, competing with overseas exotica manufacturers such as Ducati, BMW, MV Augusta and Gilera.

Trevor Nation, Michael Rutter, Chas Mortimer, Sean Emmett, James Haydon, Stan Woods plus father and son Paul and Scott Smart, brother-in-law and nephew of the late Barry Sheene - after whom the race for the 1960s machines is named - are set to be in action.

As with previous Revivals, there will be one race on Saturday and another on Sunday, with the result decided by aggregate timing. Each owner-rider will be paired up with a professional racer, and both will ride in each race, changing over in the pits around half distance.

A Le Mans-style running start will also be a feature for the race.
