As you have seen the 80th Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport’s timetable already, we should probably tell you which cars and bikes will be racing in each of those events and who will be piloting those incredible machines. So here is the full entry list for the first event of the Goodwood season.

It is a veritable what’s what of motorsport history with everything from championship-winning Formula 1 cars to Le Mans conquering sportscars and British Touring Car Championship legends featuring on the entry list. And the people who will be pedalling those incredible machines aren’t half bad either. 

Beginning with some of the star drivers and riders, you can expect to see Michael Rutter and Maria Costello from the world of bikes in the Hailwood Trophy – and they will be joined by five-time Le Mans-winner Emanuele Pirro, who is trying his hand at racing on two wheels for the first time at 80MM.

It would take far too long to go through every single legendary racing driver on our list. But to give you a flavour the Gurney Cup, for sportscars of the 1960s, features multiple BTCC champion Jason Plato, Le Mans-winners Benoit Treluyer and Nic Minassian, IndyCar legend Dario Franchitti and Top Gear presenter Chris Harris.

The Jim Clark Trophy’s battle for Lotus Cortinas will be contested by Tiff Needell, Alex Brundle, nine-time Le Mans-winner Tom Kristensen, multiple WTCC champion Andy Priaulx, triple BTCC champions Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden, Le Mans champions Neel Jani and Darren Turner and Sebring 12 Hours winner Marino Franchitti.

As if that wasn’t enough, some of the cars they will be driving are true royalty of motorsport history. From an ex-Dan Gurney Lotus Cortina, to a one-of-three Ford GT40 roadster. In the S.F. Edge Trophy we’ll again welcome back the extraordinary Fiat S76 “Beast of Turin” and its irrepressible owner Duncan Pittaway alongside a host of amazing pre-war machines.

The Gordon Spice Trophy is again filled with the Group A cars that contested the British Saloon Car Championship crown through the 1970s, including one of the race’s namesake’s own team Ford Capris.

Trofeo Nuvolari features a series of original factory team Aston Martin Ulsters as well as Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Frazer Nash, Maserati and more while the cars of the Tony Gaze Trophy are those that raced at Goodwood when the circuit first opened in 1948 – a part of our celebration of Goodwood 75 throughout 2023.

Finally from the race list the Salvadori Trophy’s Sports-Prototypes may be the prettiest cars of the weekend – Lister Knobblies, Lotus 15s, Lola Mk1, Tojeiro, Maserati Birdcage, Jaguar D-Type and more. While in the Moss Trophy the glorious selection of GT cars from 1958-1962 is not to be missed.

And that is not even to get onto our three incredible demos. The sight of not one, but actually two Brabham BT52s blasting around the circuit alone, in the hands of none other than Le Mans-winner, and son of the team’s founder Jack, David Brabham and Ricardo Patrese – the man who raced the car in period, is sure to excite anyone who has a pulse.

Those of us who adore sportscars will revel in the sights and sounds of a fleet of V12, V10 and V8-powered GT1 cars from the start of this century will be incredible, especially with the sun just beginning to lower on Saturday evening. The entry list is almost indescribably cool in this one, with Aston Martin DBR9, Ferrari 500 GTS, Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT, Chrysler Viper GTS-R Corvette C5R and C6, Seleen S7 and the legendary Lister Storm.

And last, but by no means least, a field of just racing Porsche 911s. From the earliest race-winning RSRs of the 1970s right through to the stunning 911 GT1-98 that won Le Mans in 1998.

This truly is set to be a very special weekend packed with amazing racing and awesome demos. Remember that if you don’t have tickets you’ll be able to watch the whole thing right here on GRR. As usual, this entry list is provisional and liable to change right up to the event itself, so keep checking back for any changes.
