Goodwood Motor Circuit was officially opened in September 1948 when Freddie March, the 9th Duke and renowned amateur racer, tore around the track in a Bristol 400.

Visited and handpicked by Petrolheads Welcome


Goodwood is perhaps the pre-eminent petrolhead location, with its mix of classic racing at the Goodwood Revival and all kinds of machinery tearing up the hill at the Festival of Speed. Add to that the breakfast meetings, the annual Members’ Meeting, track days, club racing, experience days, etc. and you have something of a petrolhead heaven!

There is also the Aero Cafe/Old Control Tower Cafe that’s open all year round.

You can find members of the Petrolheads Welcome team at many of these events, usually on Lavant Bank or in the cafe.

    Check the calendar for the unusual

    Of course the Goodwood circuit has the Members Meeting, the Revival and Breakfasts but look at their online calendar and there are a huge variety of events at other times. Car clubs, charities photo shoots are often to be found. On one occasion we were fortunate enough to be there when a chance was offered to drive the circuit behind a pace car. It was supposed to be going round at 30 mph but it was still leaving us behind as we hit 100 down Lavant Straight. Another time we came across Revival “rookie” drivers proving their abilities along side the more experienced shaking down their cars. A mini Revival almost all to ourselves. You may not be able to walk right round the track but you will be able to watch from the pit lane roof and the control tower.

    A mecca for car folks

    I’m amazed noone has commented on this page. A bit expensive but got everything going for it. Full of history. Been to the revival and the festival a few times. They run breakfast meets there too. If you haven’t been, why not?
