Goodwood Members' Meeting 2016
The Members' Meeting is the third major motorsport even on the Goodwood calendar, and is designed to recreate the atmosphere and camaraderie of the original BARC Members’ Meetings, which were held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit from 1949-66. This photo shows the start of the Gerry Marshall Trophy, a 15-minute race for saloon cars that competed between 1970 and 1982.
The temperature might have been frigid, but the racing at the 74th Goodwood Members’ Meeting was anything but. With a helping of motorsport legends, off-track attractions and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned camaraderie thrown in for good measure, it made for yet another unforgettable weekend…
Designed to evoke the atmosphere and camaraderie of the original BARC meetings held at the largely unchanged circuit in the 1950s and ’60s, the revived Members’ Meetings have proved particularly popular with enthusiasts, and for good reason. Fantastic historic racing is coupled with attractions off the track, such as a spectacular evening party and a novel house points system for drivers and spectators alike, heralding the start of the historic motorsport season in inimitable Goodwood style.
We’re pleased to report that the Members’ Meeting’s relaxed atmosphere, access to all areas and limited crowding was retained. Despite several of gut-wrenching accidents, the entertainment on the track was largely first-rate, and as entertaining as you’ll find anywhere else in the world.
