Chichester, West Sussex, ENGLAND — Goodwood recently confirmed that the 78th Members’ Meeting will move from May to October following the British government’s rollout of its plan to ease travel and event restrictions over the coming months.

Usually the launch of Goodwood’s historic racing season, this year’s Oct. 16-17 Members’ Meeting — an action-packed weekend of motor racing exclusively for members and fellows of the Goodwood Road Racing Club and their guests — will close the 2021 season.

The weekend will include popular races, including the S.F. Edge Trophy for Edwardian leviathans, and the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars of the 1970s and early ’80s, as part of an unchanged race line-up.

The rally sprint will also go ahead as planned, and promises to be even more dramatic with the earlier darkness in October giving the cars and drivers a full night stage. Additional special demonstrations, along with star cars and drivers, will be announced in the coming months.

The Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard and the Goodwood Revival will still take place in July and September as planned.
