Completed, Oct 16 - 18
The first ever Goodwood SpeedWeek will be a Festival of motorsport like no other. Combining the very best elements of the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, the Goodwood Revival and even Goodwood’s revived Members’ Meetings. Goodwood SpeedWeek will serve to fill the gap in the motorsport calendar and fulfill your appetite for Goodwood motorsport. Also, because it is held behind closed doors due to Covid-19 restrictions, it gives the event the chance to bring new cars to the Motor Circuit, doing more incredible things than ever before. From the first Timed Shootout to take place on the Goodwood Motor Circuit, to cars leaving the circuit and using areas normally reserved for spectators or buildings.
SpeedWeek will include elements from all of Goodwood’s major motorsport events. From the Revival all the major races you know and love will take place at SpeedWeek. These include the RAC TT Celebration for big banger GT cars, the two-driver touring car fight for the St. Mary’s Trophy, F1 races for the Glover Trophy (‘1960s) and Richmond & Gordon Trophies (1950s), a pre-war Grand Prix race for the Goodwood Trophy and the classic Can-Am vs. GT40 fight for the Whitsun Trophy.
From the Festival of Speed, SpeedWeek will host supercar debuts and new car reveals, and the classic Timed Shootout – for the first time taking place on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit.
The Members’ Meeting donates the legendary Gerry Marshall Trophy, an awesome race for 1970s touring cars, the Goodwood Rally Sprint and the incredible S.F. Edge Trophy for pre-war Edwardian specials.
Goodwood will celebrate the life of one of our greatest heroes – Sir Stirling Moss – at SpeedWeek with a race dedicated in his honour. The Kinrara Trophy, which has become the standard first race at the Goodwood Revival since its debut in 2016, will be renamed the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy for SpeedWeek and run into the dusk just like the Kinrara. It will be preceded by a parade in memory of the man they called “Mr Goodwood”, as the Duke of Richmond is joined by Lady Susie in the famous Rob Walker Racing Ferrari 250 GT SWB that Stirling piloted to victory in the 1960 Tourist Trophy
