Goodwood Members’ Meeting rescheduled to October 2021
We’re steeling ourselves for a torrent of rescheduled event dates following the U.K. government’s updated coronavirus roadmap earlier in the week, and first to announce a change is Goodwood, whose 78th Members’ Meeting will now take place in the autumn.
The usual May date has been pushed backwards to October 16–17, putting some breathing space between it and the scheduled end of restrictions in late June.
While each stage of the roadmap is subject to certain criteria being met, an October date means even a delay of a month or two shouldn’t affect the event. Goodwood has confirmed it is working with Public Health England to ensure that any remaining criteria, such as social distancing, still conforms to guidelines—though naturally, most of us will be hoping such restrictions are largely behind us by then.
The Members’ Meeting is one of the highlights of the historic motorsport calendar, alongside Goodwood’s own Festival of Speed and Revival—both of which remain steadfast for now, the Festival taking place July 8–11 and the Revival in its usual September slot, from the 17–19.
While the Members’ Meeting moves to a new date, the traditional Bonhams auction will still go ahead on May 19. Other activities at Goodwood also now have dates for reopening, with the Motor Circuit itself hosting track days and cycling from March 29, and other Goodwood driving experiences available after April 12.
We can’t wait—bring on the 2021 season.
