Goodwood motor circuit

18. July 2016 14:48 by SpellboundCars | 0 Comments

An amateur racer named Freddie March officially opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit in September 1948. The first British motor racing event occurred at that time.  Now the place is known for its historical event during World War two and is also being used for events such as the ‘Goodwood Revival events’, ‘74th Members Meeting and the ‘Festival of Speed’. The circuit is located in Chichester, West Sussex in the UK. 

The Goodwood revival event holds a historic meeting where it attracts over 150,000 spectators to watch the racers with their nostalgic vehicles from the 1940s, 50’s and the 60s. The 74th Member's meeting is pretty similar as it holds a race where they get to show off their 1950s  and 60s car on the track. As for the festival of speed, it hosts an exciting race specifically only for motorcycles. 

Goodwood has hosted some of the most important events in car racing such as the Nine Hour Sports car endurances in 1952, 1953,1955 and the Tourist Trophy Sportscar race in 1958 and 1964. The events were hosted by many famous drivers from Graham Hill, Roger Penske to Jim Clark.
