Goodwood Motor Circuit is proudly hosting its 73rd members meeting 21st – 22nd March.
Uniquely, as well as a full programme of racing the Members’ Meeting offers visitors the chance to see demonstrations of racing cars never seen here.
The Meeting promises the spectacle of 70’s F1 cars, the biggest collection of McLaren F1 GTRs ever assembled, and a group of 250mph Le Mans cars all taking to the track.
In spite of its roots and a world class field of historic racing cars and drivers, this is no Revival-style carnival of dressing up and pageantry. Instead, the Members’ Meeting dress code is more relaxed with the emphasis on the cars, the racing, and a sense of inclusiveness and ‘access all areas’ for Goodwood Members and their guests.
This all-inclusive approach means all guests mingle freely with the cars and racers in the paddocks, while a single ‘Great Hall’ refectory caters for all from the stars, to the star-struck!
Goodwood Motor Circuit is GWA’s local track and is draped in history dating back to 1948.
The track was built on the ex-military airfield RAF Westhampnett. The circuit held the first post war motor race which saw 85 competitors and 1500 spectators. The motor circuit’s success continued over the next 18 years seeing greats such as Sterling Moss and Bruce McLaren race. The circuit closed as an operational track in 1966 and has since been used as a testing and track day venue.
Events such as the 73rd Members meeting and the Revival help us to remember what a fantastic circuit Goodwood was in its hay day.
