Remembering Goodwood’s heroes at 78th Members' Meeting

A year and a half after it was originally scheduled, this weekend’s 78th Goodwood Members’ Meeting honours key figures from the circuit’s history, including the likes of Stirling Moss, Dan Gurney and Gerry Marshall

More akin to school sports days than the Olympics in Goodwood’s first heyday – from the first in August 1949 to the 71st in July 1966, after which it closed to racing – the British Automobile Racing Club’s second-tier Members’ Meetings contrasted with the international events, being aimed at enthusiastic amateurs rather than established racers.

Many competitors went on to far greater things, but for a great many weekend warriors they provided fun in cars driven to the Duke of Richmond & Gordon’s motor circuit on the fringes of historic Chichester, 80 miles south-west of London.
