Historic Motorsport Season-Opener

The Goodwood Members’ Meeting is an epic weekend of motor racing founded by the Duke of Richmond and aims to recreate the atmosphere and camaraderie of the original BARC Members’ Meetings held at Goodwood throughout the 1950s and 1960s. As well as a full programme of racing, the Members’ Meeting features cars from classic tin-tops and GTs, to motorcycles and open-wheeled Formula 3 and F1 machines. A thrilling weekend of epic motor racing, high speed track demonstrations and fun-packed festivities. Uncrowded, intimate and access-all-areas, it is exclusively open to members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club community.

For our Members

The origins of the Members' Meeting go back to 1948 when the 9th Duke of Richmond opened the circuit and held the first in a series of meetings for members of the British Automobile Racing Club. There were 71 such meetings, the last one being on 2 July 1966, after which motor racing at Goodwood ceased. The Members' Meeting was revived in 2014 in response to demand from Members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club.

Pure racing

This is a more intimate event than either the Festival of Speed or the Revival, a weekend of pure racing for the dedicated enthusiast. Spectators and drivers also take part in sporting activities, scoring points for one of four ‘Houses' – Darnley, Torbolton, Aubigny and Methuen – with the winner being awarded the Goodwood House Shield.

A Stage for Motorsport post-1966

The Members' Meeting is held in March at the historic motor circuit; it opens our season of three motorsport events during the year, amongst a sea of yellow daffodils. The event offers a rare opportunity to stage races and demonstrations for cars that were competing after 1966 (which is when the circuit closed.) When the track was revived, for the Revival Meeting in 1998, the programme was – and remains – restricted to cars that raced between 1948 and 1966.
