Please then sign on in the Jackie Stewart Pavilion, remember to bring your driving licence and a helmet, Goodwood can loan you a helmet for a contribution to the charity fund.
There may be the opportunity to drop your car to Goodwood the night before – please contact us for information.
All drivers MUST attend the driver briefing, if you miss the main briefing then a one-to-one will be held when you arrive. Please note no-one is allowed on the circuit without attending a drivers briefing, a driver/passenger wristband and the indemnity forms must be completed.
This is a 105db day, if noise does not become an issue then we should be able to field around 8 cars out at any one time. In the event your car fails a noise test there will be no refund.
This track day is, as in previous years, a great day out for serious drivers who appreciate quality machinery.
Please remember, the golden rules of the day are: no overtaking on the entry, exit or around corners – only on straights and by consent, slower cars must give way by indicating, staying to the right of the circuit, and thus giving room on the straights to faster cars coming up behind.
More details will follow closer to the event, and the Goodwood drivers regs and indemnity forms are on our website, please download, read, complete and sign. These will also be available on the day.
If any driver/owner would like to offer to take a passenger for 3 laps during the day we would be delighted. The passenger will have to be signed on and will have paid a contribution of £50.00 to the charity fund. We may run a challenge to see how many drivers can sign up as many passengers as possible, more info to follow…
The light lunch provided is for drivers only and is sponsored by Paul Auston. If you will be accompanied for the track day and wish for your colleagues to have lunch with you, please contact us in advance or asap on the day and we can (for a small contribution) arrange it.
