Goodwood has announced that they will be moving both festivals that were planned this year to 2021, as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause issues, with organisers not being able to host events due to the restrictions that have been given out by medical and healthcare authorities.

Following the postponement for the Goodwood Members Meeting, the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard in July was also postponed, but also now the Goodwood Revival in September follows as well.

The organisers of the festivals have said in a statement that all the purchased tickets for General Admission, Grandstand and Hospitality will be valid for next year.

Goodwood also announced that they have launched a third opinion that will allow ticket holders and fans to play a key role part of the future events called Goodwood Supporters’ Association (GSA).

For a business like ours, which is all about bringing people together to enjoy the things they love, social distancing has had an unavoidable impact on our ability to operate.” The Duke of Richmond said.

“The Festival of Speed and Revival events will return in 2021 and, in the meantime, we are delighted to give our incredibly loyal members and dedicated followers a unique opportunity to increase their connection to Goodwood by becoming part of our new Goodwood Supporters Association initiative.”

The GSA played a huge part to bring back the motor racing to Goodwood and now it will allow the fans to connect with the organisation.

Those who are purchasing the GSA membership will become a lifetime member and recieve benefits given out by the organisation; an engraved nameplate at the circuit or at the Festival of Speed parkland, a tree planted at north-west of the circuit at the newly planned woodland area and a GSA label pin.

“In addition, we are still hoping that we may be able to keep the flame alive with a ‘behind closed doors’ motorsport occasion later this year for motorsport fans and enthusiasts worldwide to enjoy at home and look forward to making an announcement in the coming weeks.” The Duke of Richmond added.
