Goodwood 75th Members' Meeting 2017: Fast-Paced and Memorable

Goodwood’s 75th Members' Meeting in West Sussex kicked off this year's motoring calendar in style last weekend.

Created to capture the essence of the old BARC Members Meetings held at Goodwood in the 1950s and 1960s, this two-day event was the place to be entertained.

Smaller and more exclusive than the Festival of Speed or Revival, access is restricted to members of the Goodwood Road and Racing Club.

Members and their families and friends braved the weather to enjoy a vast array of entertainment, from fast-paced racing to old fashioned games such as lawn bowls.

One of the famous faces spotted at the event last weekend was former Bake-off star Mary Berry, who enjoyed a ride around the daffodil-edged circuit with Goodwood organiser Lord March. Taking it a little more sedately than the fast laps of the later races, the duo thrilled the crowd with a leisurely jaunt in an AC 16-80.

This year’s two-day event incorporated a host of exhilarating pursuits around the 2.40 mile circuit, delighting guests with a dozen races which included motorbikes, Fiat S76’s and Porsche 911 GT1’s.

Notable winners of the weekend were the TVR Griffith 400 of Mike Jordan and Mike Whitaker for The Graham Hill Trophy for 1960-66 GT racing cars and Christian Gläsel who won the Varzi Trophy for French and Italian Grand Prix and Voiturette cars of a type that raced up to 1939.

Also gracing the circuit were parades celebrating three iconic periods in motorsport history. The first, featuring 3-litre Sport Prototypes; Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Matra, Lola and Mirage.

Legends of GT1 appeared for the second parade, show-casing an elating pool of late-1990s and early 2000s endurance racing cars. The ultimate parade was for Group A Touring cars, such as the BMW 635CSI, Volvo 240 Turbo, Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 and BMW M3. 

One of the most memorable moments was when former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard whizzed around the circuit exhibiting a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (like the one pictured).

From June 29 until July 2, an enthralling ensemble of cars and motorsport royalty combine over four superb days for the Festival of Speed at Goodwood. Showcasing the world’s rarest and most glamorous cars, the festival is the largest motoring event of its kind.
