I am a GRRC member, what are the different levels?
Goodwood Supporters' Association
As a GRRC member, you will automatically be enrolled into the Goodwood Supporters' Association. By renewing your GRRC Membership for the 2021 season, foregoing any refund or discount for 2020, we will recognise your ongoing support by including a selection of GSA benefits as part of our 2021 renewal - you do not need to do anything until the renewal process begins.
Your name will be engraved on a commemorative brass strip around the Motor Circuit perimeter fence, and you will be welcomed into the Goodwood Supporters' Association and recognised as a GSA member by your polished nickel pin badge and car windscreen sticker. You will adopt a group of trees in our new GSA forest as a perpetual reminder of your lasting connection to the Estate, and you will be invited to special thank you moments at future Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival events.
GSA Paddock Club
Upgrade your GSA membership to the GSA Paddock Club and have your name forever associated with one of Goodwood's famous historic paddock shelters at the Motor Circuit. Alternatively, you may choose to receive a signed print by The Duke of Richmond, celebrating one of a selection of important Goodwood moments. In addition, enjoy a private paddock tour at the 2021 events, along with all the GSA benefits included with the your gifted GSA membership.
Those wanting to go above and beyond can become a GSA Patron for life. Patrons will preserve Goodwood’s unique, intimate interpretation of the sport we all love. We will recognise each of our Patrons by engraving their names into the new pit wall at the circuit to serve as a perpetual reminder of our appreciation. They will also receive a special bespoke GSA pin, and a Patron’s armband, inspired by those worn by Freddie March in period. We hope people will wear the armband with pride at circuits around the world, acknowledging them as protectors of historic racing at Goodwood. The armband will allow access for the holder plus one guest onto the pit lane gantry at the Revival for life. By becoming a Patron, you will not only be supporting Goodwood but also the future of historic motor racing. To find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I join the Goodwood Supporters' Association?
You can view the different levels within the Goodwood Supporters' Association above and compare the benefits you will receive with the membership.
If you have already purchased tickets for a 2020 event, you can donate the value of your tickets held in exchange for joining the GSA. To do so, please complete and submit the online form above. You will then receive a confirmation and welcome email once this has been processed by our Ticket Office.
If you have not purchased any tickets for our 2020 events, please select from the GSA membership options above. Once you have purchased your GSA membership, you will receive a confirmation and welcome email.
Can anyone join the GSA?
The Goodwood Supporters' Association is open for anyone to join, but the benefits have been carefully curated to appeal to Goodwood's motorsport enthusiasts following the decision not to hold the Festival of Speed and the Revival in 2020.
Can I donate a different amount to Goodwood?
To support the future of motor racing at Goodwood and the rest of the estate, we are welcoming donations which can be made by contacting us at email@example.com.
Given the reinvigoration of the GSA and the request for support, does Goodwood now have charitable status and do my 'donations' qualify for Gift Aid?
The GSA initiative is designed to support the Estate through the immediate financial impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. If our customers and members wish to support the Estate and are able to do so, this is encouraged and certain donations will be recognised with a specific package of long-lasting benefits, as displayed on the website. However, the Goodwood Estate remains a privately owned, commercial entity and does not have charitable status. As such, donations will not qualify for Gift Aid, but are welcomed as part of the overall GSA initiative.
Is the GSA an ongoing membership?
Unlike traditional memberships, the GSA has been reinvigorated for a very special purpose in addressing a unique set of circumstances. With that in mind, this specific GSA programme is intended to be a one-off programme to support Goodwood through the immediate future. Therefore, all of our benefits have been designed to have long-lasting value in their own right, in order that supporters can be associated with the initiative without an ongoing GSA subscription.
I'm part of the GRRC Fellowship. What benefits do I get?
All those within the GRRC Fellowship are invited to join the GSA by donating into whichever level suits. Those that opt for Level 3, which includes a brass plaque within one of the Motor Circuit Paddock shelters, will be entitled to have their plaque re-located to the exclusive member-only paddock shelters upon becoming a full member.
I'm part of the GRRC Membership. What benefits do I get?
All those within the GRRC Membership will be automatically be enrolled into the Goodwood Supporters' Association. By renewing your GRRC Membership for the 2021 season, foregoing any refund or discount for 2020, we will recognise your ongoing support by including a selection of GSA benefits as part of our 2021 renewal - you do not need to do anything until the renewal process begins. There are additional GSA options for members wishing to make further contributions, details of which are available above.
All the GSA Levels include adopting a group of trees in the new GSA Forest. Will I know which trees are 'mine', and can I visit to see them?
Everyone who joins the GSA will adopt a group of trees in the newly planted GSA Forest, located northwest of the Motor Circuit. Each member of the GSA will be given coordinates of a small area within the woodland (approx. 3m x 3m), which will contain a group of various species of tree planted by the Goodwood Estate. Within your GSA pack you will be given a small booklet with details of the GSA Forest and the species within it. Access will be available should you wish to see your adopted trees in due course. Please note that due to the unknown level of GSA take-up, it is possible you will be sharing an area with other GSA members.
If I select one of the GSA levels which includes a plaque, how do I choose the name on the plaque, and does it have to be my name?
You can add any name on your plaque once you have reached the checkout stage. You can choose to display your name or that of a friend or loved one. Please note that the name you add to your plaque is final.
If I contribute extra and join the GSA Paddock Club and opt for a plaque within a paddock shelter, will I get a paddock shelter to myself?
There are a limited number of member-only paddock shelters at the Motor Circuit, and we are anticipating that this will be a popular GSA benefit. Therefore, please do expect to share a paddock shelter with a group of members. It is our hope that this will be yet another way to strengthen the GRRC community, as members get to know their paddock 'compatriots' as they attend Motor Circuit events and pay repeated visits to their particular paddock shelter. We will also explain the purpose of the plaques to the competitors; it is important that they all understand the contribution you have made in order for them to continue to enjoy racing at Goodwood.
If I choose to exchange some of my existing 2020 ticket value for GSA benefits, what will happen to any remaining balance on my account?
Any remaining balance after joining the GSA will be moved to your account as a credit for any future Goodwood purchases.
What does this mean for my Horseracing/Aero/Health Club/Golf/Kennels membership?
The Goodwood Supporters' Association is open for anyone to join, but the benefits have been carefully curated to appeal to Goodwood's motorsport enthusiasts following the decision not to hold the Festival of Speed and the Revival in 2020. Regarding other sports and Goodwood memberships, we are in close contact with the Government to understand any further impact on the rest of the estate. Our golf club has already reopened. Our resident flyers are able to take to the skies and we have some track activities now taking place at the Motor Circuit. We are hopeful that, within Government guidelines, we can soon open The Kennels and Goodwood Health Club.
