The event sees some of motorsport’s finest cars throughout the history battling for the trophies in different classes, with cars from older Formula 1 cars, Ferrari 250 GTO from Le Mans to motorcycles, being raced by their owns or well-known race cars drivers from all around the world.

“We were very sad to postpone the 78th Members’ Meeting in March this year, but were confident that it was the right thing to do to protect our visitors, competitors and staff. The 78th Members’ Meeting will be our best yet, and we are already working to see how we can add to the spectacular racing we had planned. ” The Duke of Richmond, said.

“I know that our many fans of the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard and the Goodwood Revival are keen to know how and when their favourite motorsport events will be taking place, and we are exploring a range of options to host events again as soon as we can.”
