GOOD­WOOD

Motor Sport News - - Where To Go This Season - KT/DE

Okay, so we’re cheat­ing a bit here, but each of Good­wood’s events is wor­thy of be­ing on this list.

Rac­ing fans should head to the Re­vival, which com­bines the best his­toric driv­ers with cur­rent stars and some of the best rac­ing cars ever made, but the Mem­bers’ Meet­ing is a gem too.

Lower key and less crowded than the Re­vival, it still pro­duces the goods, while the Gerry Mar­shall Tro­phy for 1970s and early 1980s tour­ing cars helps give the event its own iden­tity.

For star spot­ting (both hu­man and me­chan­i­cal), the Fes­ti­val of Speed is the place to go. The 2016 theme is ‘Full Throt­tle – The End­less Pur­suit of Power’, which should help to at­tract some pretty sen­sa­tional and over-the-top ma­chin­ery.

One of the high­lights of the event is what hap­pens near where the hun­kered-down race cars do their donuts and get ready to head back down the hill.

Get in be­tween the trees and pre­pare your­self for an on­slaught of the best col­lec­tion of fight­ing fit Group 4, Group B and mod­ern day rally cars un­der the sun.

And, just like the boys and girls tear­ing it up out­side the house, the ma­chin­ery on the For­est Stage will prob­a­bly be driven just a touch quicker than it re­ally ought to be.

Mem­bers’ Meet­ing March 19/20 Fes­ti­val of Speed June 23-26 Re­vival Septem­ber 9-11
