Covit-19 was canceled in 2020 due to the epidemic, and the pace, revival and meeting of members are all scheduled to progress by 2021.
The 78th meeting of the Goodwood Road Racing Club, which will be open to members and associates and their guests, was originally scheduled for March 2020 and has now been rescheduled for 15-16 May 2021.
The fast-paced festival is set to kick off on July 8-11 with the theme ‘The Maestro – Motorsport’s Best All-Rounders’. The event will be open to the public as usual, allowing motor enthusiasts to see cars of all ages tackling the 1.16-mile-long hill at Goodwood House.
Finally, the Renaissance takes place on September 17-19, with classic cars from 1948 to 1966 racing on the historic motor circuit. Like the Speed Festival, the Renaissance is open to the public.
All three events will be run in accordance with Covid 19 and government guidelines on social distance. After being forced to cancel its flagship motorsport events in 2020, Goodwood hosted the Speedweek show behind closed doors in October, where the races aired online and on TV.
Richmond Duke, owner of Goodwood Estate, said: “Above all, our events are very special – the drivers, the teams, our staff and above all the fans.
“We were incredibly disappointed not to be able to welcome them to our much-loved events in 2020. Now, we are delighted to announce that all three motorsport events are scheduled to return next year.
“Thanks to all of our loyal followers who rolled out tickets or joined the Goodwood Supporters Association, it helped us measure up during this very difficult year. We certainly can’t wait to see them and lots of new fans in 2021.”
