What is the Track Day procedure?
For Goodwood Track days, cars will proceed onto the Circuit one at a time with a marshal checking that wristbands and helmets are being worn with the correct clothing. The front car in the Pit Lane must wait until the red traffic light turns green to go, and at this point only one car should join the Circuit. If you are the next car you should then wait for the light to turn green which signals it's your go.
Please do not leave your car once it is in the Pit Lane.
What happens if I damage my car during the experience?
Please contact your insurer and ask whether or not you need to pay an additional premium for track activity.
How many people per booking?
All Goodwood Track Day experiences are for one driver only, however one passenger can also go out per rotation. Passengers must be a minimum of 14 years and older. Children under 16 are not allowed in the Pit Lane and must get in and out of the vehicle in Parc Ferme.
What happens if I need to change my experience?
All Goodwood Track and Test Days are non-refundable and non-transferable after 48 hours.
It is very unusual for us to have to cancel driving experiences due to weather. Should there be particularly adverse weather forecast (such as snow) we will contact you ahead of the date and arrange for you to come on an alternative day. If the weather is very bad on the day, and you would like to double check that we are running the experiences as scheduled please call 01243 755055.
Unfortunately you will not be refunded if you assume the day is not running as run in virtually all weather.
