Goodwood Members Meeting 2017 – 75MM
The Goodwood Members Meeting 2017 is another fantastic event in the Historic Motorsport calendar. This fantastic 3 day event shares a lot with Goodwood Revival & the Silverstone Classic. Absolutely flat out wheel-to-wheel racing on the track with hundreds of rare and priceless cars, from historic yesteryear of motorsport.
What sets it apart from Revival is that it is for Members of Goodwood Road Racing Club. A limited number of tickets sales are made available to the spectating public….making it much less crowded that Revival. It still manages to create a fantastic atmosphere though. Full access to the paddock is given, where you can walk amongst these quite lovely machines. Chat to their proud owners & equally proud mechanics, as they finish last preparations before they go off on track. I was amazed by the engineering of Edwardian racing cars, married with very basic wicker patio seats & no belts at 100mph… No Thank you!!!
Away from the race track…
Take a short break from the motorsport & there is still plenty to see. The Hydrangeas of September’s Revival had been replaced by walls of majestic golden Daffodils. In the Members Market, live music provided the backing track to the smokey air in the barn from all kinds of delicious hot food stalls. I for one can vouch for the steak sandwiches…. & I might have tried a bit from the Hog Roast later too!! Dotted around the beer stands were fire pits burning away creating some much welcome warmth from the wind.
This is my 2nd visit to Goodwood & I can honestly say I can’t wait to go back. It creates a totally unique atmosphere around motorsport I’ve never experienced anywhere else.
I hope you enjoy looking through this collection of some of my favourite photos from this very special event.
