The world-famous Goodwood Motor Circuit plans to run a full slate of motorsport events in 2021.

The 78th Members’ Meeting is now scheduled for May 15-16.

The Festival of Speed Presented by Mastercard will light up engines from July 8-11. Mario Andretti is one of the special guests.

The Goodwood Revival is scheduled for September 17-19.

The Goodwood Motor Circuit is on the Goodwood Estate in Sussex, UK.

Tickets will go on sale on February 1, 2021. Many ticket holders for 2020 Goodwood events chose to roll over their tickets to the 2021 events, so there will be limited tickets for sale. It’s a good idea to buy your tickets as soon as possible.

Goodwood will refund or roll over tickets for any cancelled 2021 events.

The global COVID-19 pandemic forced Goodwood to cancel all public motorsport events in 2020. Goodwood rebounded in late 2020, with the one-time-only Goodwood SpeedWeek, which ran a variety of races from the cancelled events during October 16-17. No spectators were allowed, but a free video feed over the Internet brought in a large audience of virtual race fans.

Goodwood is now positioned for a spectacular 2021.

“More than anything else it is the people who make our events so special; the drivers, the teams, our staff and above all the fans,” the Duke of Richmond said in a press release. “We were incredibly disappointed not to be able to welcome them to our much-loved events in 2020. Now we are thrilled to be able to announce that all three motorsport events are planned to be back next year. Thank you to all our loyal followers who either rolled over their tickets or joined the Goodwood Supporters’ Association, which helped us immeasurably in a very tough year. We absolutely cannot wait to see them and plenty of new fans in 2021.”
