Goodwood announces 2017 dates

Car Culture
McLaren M23 – Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016

Goodwood Motorsport has announced updated dates for its flagship Festival of Speed for 2017, after a change to next year’s Formula 1 calendar was made this week.

Goodwood’s dates are always subject to change, depending on movements in Formula One and other calendars which are yet to be finalised. However, the current plan is below. The dates for the 75th Members’ Meeting have been confirmed and are not subject to change.

75th Members’ Meeting: 18-19 March 2017 (confirmed)
Goodwood Festival of Speed & Moving Motor Show: 29 June – 2 July 2017
Goodwood Revival: 8-10 September 2017

Tickets for all three events always sell out well in advance, so keep your eyes on their website for information. The Members’ Meeting is currently only open to GRRC members, with a limited number of tickets being made available to the general public from 2 January 2017.

Hopefully there will be no further changes to the F1 calendar and these will be the definite, final, confirmed dates. Most of the F1 teams have a strong presence at the Festival of Speed every year, and 2017 should be no different. At the 2016 event, Nico Rosberg was hugely popular with the fans and spent additional time at the event after Lewis Hamilton cancelled his scheduled appearance at the last minute.

Of course, if you can’t get tickets then you could always apply to be a volunteer
