About Goodwood Motor Circuit
Goodwood Motor Circuit was founded by Freddie March, later the ninth Duke of Richmond, at the end of the Second World War. It began life as a war-time airfield that played a major part in the Battle of Britain. RAF pilots used to race their cars around the perimeter track, inspiring the Duke with the idea to turn it into a motor circuit. Goodwood Motor Circuit opened in 1948 and closed in 1966, which meant that Goodwood was the home of British motorsport during the sports’ most exciting and glamorous era.

Fifty years to the day after its original opening, the current Duke of Richmond re-opened the circuit in 1998 with a three-day event now known as Goodwood Revival. Goodwood is the only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form and has been
meticulously restored; everything from the track itself to the many authentic wartime buildings still stand on the site.

Home to Goodwood Revival and Members' Meeting, the Motor Circuit is open throughout the year for track days and driving experiences. It also hosts Breakfast Club, which brings anyone and everyone who loves cars together on a Sunday morning to enjoy breakfast and share their passion for the automobile in all its various forms.
