This past weekend saw the 77th Members’ Meeting held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.
The Members’ Meetings are fascinating events as not only do they travel back in time in terms of motorsport and the fabulous historic race cars which are driven with real gusto on the legendary Goodwood Circuit, but the Members’ Meetings arguably also travel back in time in terms of Goodwood’s own Goodwood Revival meetings. There is no arguing that the Revival is an entirely amazing weekend, but if one were to criticise, the Revival has perhaps become a victim of its own success. Unlike the first Revivals held, the current affair is flooded with spectators and as a result they have also become somewhat commercialised. With the Members’ Meetings, Goodwood is addressing that by only selling a limited number of tickets to the public and thereby maintaining a crucial element of that charming grassroot atmosphere.
Unfortunately and much to our dismay, none of our usual ViaRETRO team was able to make it to Goodwood for the 77th Members’ Meeting. Luckily for you though, longterm friend of ViaRETRO, Dominic Temple, was there making the most of the weekend and he has kindly sent us his pictures as he strolled through the paddocks. Enjoy…
