The 2015 season of the Goodwood Breakfast Club events will see a diverse mix of themes when Goodwood stages on five occasions from May to November. The 10th annual series for car and motorcycle enthusiasts will continue to be entry free for everyone.
Five Breakfast Clubs will be held in 2015, each one taking place on the opening Sunday of the month. As in 2014, due to the close proximity of major Goodwood events, there will be no Breakfast Club in July or September.
New for the Goodwood Breakfast Club 2015 season is Bahn-Stormers Sunday, which will bring down the curtain on the season on 1 November. Expect everything from iconic Audi RS and Mercedes AMG machines to superb BMW motorcycles.
Joining the Bahn-stormers will be a mix of favourite themes from 2014 that are again sure to draw huge crowds of enthusiastic car and bike owners to the Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Fresh from a record attendance of 15,000 visitors in 2014, Supercar Sunday kicks off the season on May 3 with at least 1200 modern masterpieces from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche, McLaren and others on-track.
Convertibles and cabriolets will take centre stage on Soft-Top Sunday on 7 June while pre-1966 machines will be the order of the day on Thoroughbred Sunday on 2 August and, following a popular introduction in 2014, Vee-Power Sunday, for cars and bikes powered by ‘vee’ engines, returns on 4 October.
All 2015 Goodwood Breakfast Club events will be staged from 0800-1200 hours on the first Sunday of the month (except in July and September due to the proximity of, respectively, the Festival of Speed [June 25-28] and Revival [September 11-13]).
Visitors who wish to display their car must pre-register online to ensure entry and potentially a prime parking position with a theme-relevant vehicle.
Goodwood Breakfast Club 2015 – Schedule of Events
3 May, Supercar Sunday:
The ultimate high-performance machines – cars and bikes – to create the greatest free supercar show on the planet! A Goodwood favourite returns.
7 June, Soft-Top Sunday:
Anything but the roof! Classic and modern soft-tops, T-tops, targas and ‘no-tops-at-all’, resplendent in the Sussex summer sunshine. Get your tops off and come and join the party.
2 August, Thoroughbred Sunday:
Turning the clock back to the golden era of the Goodwood Motor Circuit, this is the big day for pre-1966 cars and bikes. Motoring nostalgia doesn’t get better than this, and like every Breakfast Club, it’s free to join the fun!
4 October, Vee-Power Sunday:
From vee-twin motorcycles and micro cars to mighty V16 Cadillacs and Bugattis, Goodwood celebrates the versatile petrol-powered ‘vee’ engine in all its booming variety.
1 November, Bahn-Stormer Sunday:
Fun, Fun, Fun didn’t start with Kraftwerk – Auto Unions were setting records on the first stretch of German Autobahn as early as 1935. We’ll celebrate everything from these to Mercedes and BMW Q Cars and beyond.
