gOOd­wOOd’s sea­sOn-Opener has proven a big suc­cess over its pre­vi­ous two stag­ings. It’s an homage to the BARC Mem­bers’ Meet­ings orig­i­nally run there through­out the 1950s and ’60s, and was re­vived in 2014 as a Good­wood Road Rac­ing Club mem­bers-only event. How­ever, if ca­pac­ity al­lows, the gates are opened to non-mem­bers as well – so get your name on the on­line wait­ing list quick!

Con­ceived to recre­ate the re­laxed, in­ti­mate at­mos­phere and ca­ma­raderie of the orig­i­nal meet­ings, MM74 ma­jors on a 12-race pro­gramme for clas­sic and more con­tem­po­rary cars. It will also host high-speed demos, and – in a Mem­bers’ Meet­ing first – a mo­tor­bike race. A fur­ther high­light is a huge party on the Satur­day evening.

The pre­vi­ous Mem­bers’ Meet­ing fea­tured 1970s F1 cars, the most McLaren F1 GTRs ever as­sem­bled in one place, a col­lec­tion of crazy 250mph Group C Le Mans cars and 1970s/early 1980s Group 1 ‘tin-tops’. The next event prom­ises even more ex­cite­ment – and 1000 non-mem­ber tick­ets will be of­fered to the pub­lic from 1 Jan­uary. Stand by…
