Making New History
In its original guise, the Goodwood Motor Circuit was in operation between 1948 and 1966. The circuit was re-opened in 1998 for the annual Goodwood Revival Meeting and we are just a few years away before Goodwood’s second coming will be longer than the track’s first. While today the competitors don’t race for price money or championship points, some still take it very seriously, preparing for the event like it was a modern day Grand Prix.
