Goodwood had hoped that by following UK Government advice and implementing a number of additional safety and hygiene protocols, they could all ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ as coronavirus threatened the 78th Members’ Meeting. Alas, with the situation constantly evolving, and the news that the UK Government plan to restrict mass gatherings later this week; the safety and wellbeing of there customers is there highest priority. As such, they regret to inform you that the 78th Members’ Meeting, which was due to take place on March 28-29, has been postponed.
Goodwood is currently exploring potential alternative dates with all relevant parties and they would like to reassure you that your ticket will remain valid for the new date.
They have always relied on the support of the Goodwood Road Racing Club since the very beginning and they would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during these challenging times. Rest assured that they will update you with an alternative date as soon as they can and they look forward to a time in the not-so-distant future when they can once more come together to celebrate everything we love about motorsport.
The Bonhams auction will continue to take place behind closed doors with the auction being live streamed through there Goodwood Road and Racing channel and they will continue to review plans for the Festival of Speed and Revival, in the hope that both events will be able to go ahead as planned on July 9-12 and September 11-13 respectively, as well as looking forward to the rescheduled 78th Members’ Meeting.
