Goodwood Circuit

The Goodwood estate encompasses the Goodwood Circuit, an important track in British racing history. The course encircles the RAF Westhampnet Airfield, now known as the Chichester/Goodwood Airport in West Sussex, England. The first car race was held at the 2,367-mile track in 1948 and was active until 1966. Famous drivers such as Mike Hawthorne, Graham Hill, and Roger Penske competed there.

History of the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Lord March wanted to revive British racing at Goodwood Circuit after he inherited the estate in the early 1990s but couldn’t get a permit for a race, so he hosted an event at his Goodwood estate instead on Sunday, June 20, 1993. The Goodwood Festival of Speed has grown to a multi-day event featuring displays of historic and modern race cars, as well as several special events.
