Goodwood has a range of dedicated facilities across the event site especially designed to meet the needs of visitors with impaired mobility, enabling you to catch all the action and experience the event to the full.
Car Parks & Road Signs

Disabled visitors should be aware that the Goodwood Motor Circuit site uses some gravel paths. Although we endeavour to maintain good conditions underfoot please be aware that there may be uneven ground. There are few permanent roadways around the perimeter of the site. We lay temporary roads to ease movement around the event and vehicle movements within the car parks. Please note all the car parks are also on grassland.
