Goodwood Motor Circuit is an extraordinary place. The only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form, it was sympathetically restored over a six year period in 1998 in preparation for the inaugural Goodwood Revival that year. Thanks to that investment, it is a unique and exceptional venue for track hire.

Track Hire

Nestling at the foot of the South Downs, the sea often visible just a few miles distant, the picturesque venue was the scene of legendary battles between great heroes from 1948 through to 1966. Brabham, McLaren, Surtees, Moss, Gurney, Fangio, Gonzalez, Salvadori, Hawthorn…the list goes on and on. And they drove everything here from diminutive 500cc Coopers to the then greatest jewels of sports car and Grand Prix racing.

Today you too can drive the same track as the heroes of yesteryear.
