There are some moments that you just know will live long in the memory and no doubt linger on social media (with the #73MM hashtag, of course). To make sure you experience these moments as they happen, check out our top ten below, or view the provisional itinerary for timings.
For anyone not attending, just remember that you can see it all unfolding online on our Social Stream, alongside the best of the pictures, videos and comments on social media.
1. The Hunt (Saturday)
It is fairly startling to see a horse and a pack of hounds on a historic motor circuit – make sure you are there to see it on the Saturday morning at around 08:40hrs.
2. High-speed demos (Saturday/Sunday)
Whether it is ‘high-airbox’ F1 cars or McLaren F1 GTRs that you prefer, both these high-speed demos will be fantastic displays of rare and beautiful racing cars on track (taking place both days).
3. Three-car handicap race – IWC Track moment IWC (Saturday)
A three-car shootout involving three Mercedes cars including a modern Mercedes-AMG F1 car – find out more here.
4. Gerry Marshall Trophy (Saturday/Sunday)
Marvel at the Group 1 touring cars that made the BTCC such a crowd-puller in Britain in the 1970s and early ‘80s, with Capris, SD1s and Camaros expected to battle for honours and the ubiquitous Dolomites, Minis and BMWs chasing their tails – and all in authentic period liveries too.
5. The Party (Saturday)
If you have a Saturday ticket then your day of motoring action and off-track entertainment culminates with an incredible Party that you will not want to miss. The fireworks were among the highlights last year – they get started at 21:45hrs.
6. John Aldington Trophy (Sunday)
A capacity grid of 30 stunning Porsche 911s of pre-1967 variety will battle out for victory in the race named in honour of the man widely credited with establishing Porsche’s UK arm. Watch out for an epic father v son battle between touring car racing’s fastest family; Mike and Andrew Jordan.
7. Games (Saturday/Sunday)
There are some incredible Games available to you – all free of charge and all earning points for your House. Everything from the ordinary (i.e. football free kick, tug of war) to the extraordinary (i.e. duck herding, wrestling moves). Make sure you head down to the F1 car paddock to try the IWC Pitstop Challenge in the afternoons on both days (15:30 – 17:30 Saturday; 14:00 – 16:00 Sunday) – you and two companions have the chance to change the wheels on an F1 car!
8. Grid Walks (Saturday/Sunday)
It is not often you get to walk on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit between the cars on the grid, so make sure you take one of the four opportunities across the weekend to do this.
9. Graham Hill Trophy (Saturday)
This two-driver enduro begins at dusk on Saturday night and continues as darkness falls. A sensational line-up of cars, including Jaguar E-types, Corvette Stingrays and some ultra-racer Shelby Daytona Cobras.
10. Prize-giving (Sunday)
Rub shoulders with all the stars and the starry-eyed at the prize-giving ceremony in the Great Hall on Sunday afternoon – who knows who you’ll end up sat next to!
