The Goodwood Festival of Speed, Revival, and Member Meeting is scheduled to move forward in 2021, but was canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
The 78th member meeting, originally scheduled for March 2020, is now scheduled for May 15-16, 2021, when members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club and their guests will be allowed to attend.
Then the Speed Festival is set to move on July 8-11 with the theme ‘The Maestro – Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders’. The program will be open to the public as usual, allowing motorists to see cars of all ages to climb the 1.16-mile hill at Goodwood House.
Finally, the revival will take place on September 17-19, with classic cars from 1948 to 1966 taking part in the races of the historic motor circuit. Like the Festival of Speed, the revival will be open to the public.
All three programs will be run in accordance with government guidelines on COVID-19 and social distances. After being forced to cancel its major motorsport programs in 2020, Goodwood hosted a closed-door Speedweek show in October, where the races were broadcast online and on TV.
Duke Richmond, owner of the Goodwood Estate, said: “Most of all, these are the people who make our events special – the drivers, the teams, our staff and the biggest fans.
“We were disappointed to fail to welcome him to our much-loved 2020 event. Now, we’re glad to announce that all three motorsport programs are planned for next year.
“Thanks to all our loyal followers who either ran on their tickets or joined the Goodwood Sports Association, which helped us tremendously in a very difficult year. We can’t wait to see them and new fans in 2021. ”
