78th Goodwood Members' Meeting postponed

17th March 2020

As you have probably heard, the UK Government has recently taken the decision to restrict large-scale public events as a means of controlling the spread of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. As a result we are sorry to inform you that 78MM will be postponed until further notice.


In 2014, after a hiatus of 48 years, Goodwood staged the 72nd Members’ Meeting, successfully reviving a series that began in 1949. In 2018, the 76th Members’ Meeting raced on through the ‘Beast From The East’, while other events succumbed to the freezing conditions. We hoped that, by following UK Government advice in full, and implementing a number of additional safety and hygiene protocols, we could ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ as coronavirus threatened the 78th Members’ Meeting. Alas, with the situation constantly evolving, and in light of the UK Government’s latest announcement about restrictions on mass gatherings, 78MM will no longer take place on its previously announced dates.

Update: Two-day Members' Meeting Favourite Moments live stream to take place this weekend!

The 78th Members' Meeting was due to take place on March 28th-29th, with a packed schedule of 14 incredible races, including a new format for the iconic Gerry Marshall Trophy and the two-part S.F. Edge Trophy, plus three amazing demonstrations — celebrating the historic TWR Jaguar XJRs, the Lotus 72 and its contemporaries, and Goodwood's first ever night-time rally sprint. We are confident it was going to be the best event yet, and are devastated at the postponement, but it goes without saying that the safety of Goodwood’s visitors, competitors, staff and volunteers must always come first.

While the coronavirus pandemic continues to be an ever changing situation, the Goodwood team are currently exploring a range of alternative dates for 78MM, consulting with all relevant parties, and we will keep you informed as the situation develops. Sadly, the 2020 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard has also had to be postponed

In the meantime, we will continue planning for Revival in the hope that it will go ahead as planned on September 11th-13th, as well as looking forward to the rescheduled 78th Members’ Meeting and Festival of Speed.
