The area will be monitored closely, and for the safety of all public, the viewing spaces are closed. The right of way remains open to through traffic only, so stopping on this route is not permitted.
Jon Barnett, General Manager at Goodwood Racecourse commented; “While we understand the public interest around the occasion, we are discouraging use of the area during the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
“We are all in this together and we will maximise our chances of returning to normality if we follow government guidance – sadly in our case that means we cannot accept crowds gathering on Trundle Hill. We are actively encouraging people to create their own “Glorious Goodwood” experience at home, dress for the occasion and enjoy the day.
“The pilot event on the fifth day with a limited crowd marks an important step for British Racing and is part of a road map for bringing an audience back in the future, so we ask everyone to respect this and stay at home.”
Five races from each day of the ‘Glorious Goodwood’ meeting will be televised on ITV1. All members of the public are invited to get involved by uploading their pictures from the comfort of their own homes using #GloriousAtHome.
