The 2016 Goodwood Members Meeting was staged March 19-20 on the 7-turn, 2.4-mile Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England.
Lord March’s latest spectacle of speed at his Goodwood playground still has the Sports Car Digest team shaking our heads in admiration at the gathering of pure madness roaring around the Goodwood Motor Circuit. This year’s event featured 11 races for a huge range of historic automobiles, as well as three high-speed demonstration runs that celebrated some of the most iconic racing cars in the sport’s varied history. From Edwardian racing specials up to 1923 to the heroic Group 5 racing machines of 1969 to 1971, the 2016 Members’ Meeting was overflowing with memorable races and exhibitions.
The origins of the Members Meeting go back to 1948 when the 9th Duke of Richmond opened the circuit and held the first in a series of meetings for members of the British Automobile Racing Club. There were 71 such meetings, the last one being on 2 July 1966, after which motor racing at Goodwood ceased. The Members’ Meeting was revived in 2014 in response to demand from Members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club. In 2016 it celebrated its 74th edition.
Since the fantasy land at Goodwood presents us with such incredible material, we simply cannot pack it all into one, two or even three stories. To wit, Julien Mahiels joins Tim Scott’s galleries with the following stunning on-track images from the 2016 Goodwood Members Meeting. We split up Julien’s pictures into two galleries.
