Members Meeting - Press Article

Goodwood is delighted to confirm the first of two demonstrations at the 79th Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport (9 – 10 April 2022): a celebration of Porsche’s legendary 956 and 962.

Achieving near-total domination in the 1980s, the 956 secured Le Mans victories in 1982, ’83, ’84 and ’85, with the follow up 962 continuing Porsche’s winning ways in ’86 and ’87. Marking 40 years since the 956’s first Le Mans win, the Members’ Meeting demonstration will first take place on Saturday evening as the sun sets, recreating the iconic setting of the Circuit de la Sarthe, with the assembled cars set to take to the track once again on Sunday.

Goodwood is looking to invite in the region of 20 956 and 962s to the Members’ Meeting along with some of the 177 different drivers who saw success behind the wheel of these giants of Group C.
