Every year Goodwood is home to some of the world’s greatest automotive events, ones that due to the global pandemic had to be cancelled in 2020. Thankfully though, Goodwood has confirmed new dates for all three of its biggest gatherings, with the 78th Members’ Meeting, Festival of Speed and Revival all coming back for 2021.
Goodwood Festival of Speed will now take place on July 8-11, and will be based around the same theme originally planned for 2020: ‘Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders’. The usual collection of everything from camouflaged development cars and, modern racers and plenty of fresh new metal will be present, with manufacturers, teams and drivers set to celebrate their greatest motorsport achievements.
2019’s event saw the all-electric Volkswagen ID R, piloted by Romain Dumas, set a record hill climb run, tackling the course in just 39.90sec, a record more than plenty of manufacturers would be eying up to add to the trophy cabinet.
Having initially been postponed to March of this year, the 78th Members’ Meeting will now take place instead on the weekend of May 15-16. Held exclusively for members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club it, as every year, aims to recreate the atmosphere of Goodwood race weekend of decades gone by.
Celebrating the Motor Circuit’s golden age between 1948 and 1966 is the Goodwood Revival, this year set for September 17-19. Always home to some of the world’s rarest and most valuable machinery, the retro-themed event is always a highlight to lovers of motorsport old and new.
All three events will be run in accordance with Government Covid-19 guidelines of the time, with tickets going on sale from Monday February 1st.
