10 features 74MM guests may not know about

1 Grid walks

Have you ever wanted to walk on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit? This is your chance. Check the provisional timetable to see when these Grid Walks take place.

2 Rugby – 6 Nations

Head over to the Rugby Field to team up for a game of touch rugby or kick a few goals – all in the name of garnering points for your House. On Saturday, huge screens will show 6 Nations games throughout the day, with a conveniently located bar alongside them. 

3 Food

We have a new catering partner at Goodwood called rhubarb and we are excited to share their delicious menus. They are fueling the various eateries around the Members’ Meeting as well as future Goodwood events. Let us know what you think.

4 Cloak Room

Remember that you can bring extra layers and drop them off at our cloak room, located next to the Chicane parking area and Bonhams Auction Marquee.

5 IWC Garage

You will probably already be aware of the Silver Arrow high-speed demo on the Saturday brought to you by our timing partner IWC Schaffhausen, but there is also an off-track feature throughout the weekend. Both 1950s Silver Arrows Mercedes-Benz w196 Grand Prix cars from the track moment and a third Silver Arrow (the 1935 Mercedes-Benz W25) will be parked in the IWC garage for your viewing pleasure.

6 House points

Keep an eye out for updates on the House points scores. Drivers from each House will score points with their performances in the Races, but you too contribute by playing Games. It is a light-hearted competition, but you can bet Anthony Reid and his Methuen House will take it seriously as they aim for a hat-trick of wins.

7 Running of the hounds

A truly singular sight – make sure to arrive on time on Saturday morning if you want to see these horses and hounds on the Motor Circuit. They are due to start at 0830hrs.

8 Bonhams Auction

The sale takes place on the Sunday, however, on the Saturday GRRC Members wearing their 2016 GRRC badge can enter the preview with one guest. Members are also entitled to a discount on the Bonhams catalogue, which is required by anyone wanting to enter on the Sunday. Non-members must purchase a catalogue to enter either Saturday or Sunday. More details here.

9 Communion

At 0800hrs on Sunday there will be a Holy Communion service in the Memorial Garden, which is found next to the Assembly Area. An important moment at Goodwood Motor Circuit events.

10 Games

For those moments when you fancy a break from the racing there are all manner of Games to enjoy – all of which are complimentary. Prospective highlights include ferret racing and a mini autosolo. Take a look at the video below to see what this involves. Yes, you too can have a go!
