What does a ticket to the 72nd Members’ Meeting at Goodwood Motor Circuit on 29-30 March get you? The answer is rather more than you might imagine...
Ensuring the ‘surprise and delight’ factor at the motor sport occasion of the spring is off-the-scale, the event for Goodwood Road Racing Club members and their guests is not just access-all-areas, it is also predominantly all-inclusive.
With entry lists overflowing and lots of different fun activities for visitors of all ages, it makes the reborn event – 48 years since the last Members’ Meeting – not just unmissable, but also brilliant value. Of course, you might feel the need to splash out on a classic car, but that’s another story…
You can park your car for free and enjoy two days of incredible motor racing action, and high-speed demonstration runs by cars never before seen on the circuit, including 26 turbocharged Formula 1 monsters from the 1970s and ’80s.
Drivers will be competing for a host of new trophies in both exquisite racing machinery from the circuit‘s heyday and in cars new to Goodwood, such as Group 1 racing saloons. The sight of aces like Anthony Reid, Andy Priaulx, Jochen Mass, Emanuele Pirro and Patrick Watts going head to head in period-liveried Capris, SD1s, Camaros and Dolomite Sprints is surely worth the admission price alone.
All visitors have unlimited access to all the paddocks, the pit-building roof, the designated grid walk and all viewing points around the circuit, accessible by complementary tractor rides. You will be welcomed at all catering and entertainment areas, including The Great Hall, The Daffodil and The Bill Wisdom Enclosure, while there is nothing out of bounds (or to pay for) among the huge range of fun activities on offer, from a caravan towing test and blindfold driving to musical bingo and an egg-and-spoon race.
Each entry ticket guarantees a souvenir metal badge, crèche facilities and access to the classic car lot and the prize-giving ceremony on Sunday evening. Oh, and children under 12 go free.
All weekend and Saturday tickets comes with a personal invitation from Lord March to you and your guests to the Saturday evening festivities – music, singing, dancing, steam funfair, circus acts and the biggest fireworks display ever seen at the Motor Circuit, by the company that put on the Buckingham Palace rooftop show for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Whizzbang or what?
One ticket…all this. One unmissable weekend in March.
