Best to do both days; the racing is spectacular, there’s full paddock access
Goodwood Members’ Meeting
“Like the Revival but without the crowds” is the usual description of the Members’ Meeting. Also, it’s colder, and newer cars are allowed to race, most notably 1970s saloons such as the Rover SD1 and Ford Capri 3.0, plus Group C and Turbo F1 demos. It’s a continuation of the BARC race meetings of the 1950s and ’60s, revived in 2014 for the 72nd Members’ Meeting, and it’s open only to GRRC members – or, seeing as there’s a waiting list for full membership, you can buy into the GRRC Fellowship, which will then allow you to buy MM tickets. Best to do both days; the racing is spectacular, there’s full paddock access and the food hall features live music. But if you do just one day, make it Saturday and stay for the dusk race, fireworks, circus displays and superb party: that special Goodwood touch sets this above other meetings. Period gear isn’t required, but dress stylishly and, above all, warmly. Brrrr!
