Our Glorious Goodwood Premium Event!
This event is strictly limited to 25 cars! With the increased noise limit, we can run up to 11 cars on track at any one time so there should be no queueing in the pit lane.
Goodwood Motor Circuit was officially opened in September 1948 when Freddie March, the 9th Duke and renowned amateur racer, tore around the track in a Bristol 400. He received a rapturous response from 15,000 spectators who had come to the opening of Britain's first professionally organised post-war motor-racing event.
On September 4th RMA Track Days heads to what is arguably the most celebrated track in British motor racing history!
Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to drive this beautiful circuit on a noisy day!

Free photos of your day at this fantastic historical circuit
The overtaking policy for this event is the same as all RMA Track Days. Overtaking may be on both sides on the straights, overtaking in the corners is not permitted unless the car in front gives a visible indication for the faster car to pass.
Drivers who disobey the overtaking policy will be black flagged, if they repeatedly disobey the overtaking policy we have the right to remove the driver from the event in the interest of the other participants safety.
At the start of the drivers briefing we will ask all participants if they have been to the circuit before, please don't be shy if you haven't as we will ask you to raise your hand. We purely use this to gauge the number of new comers to the track. If there seems to be a large number of new drivers, we will likely hold a 20 minute familiarisation session for these drivers to see the circuit at a slow pace before the track day goes fully live.
Photographers will be at this event capturing the day. We will then upload all images for you to access and download for free!
Goodwood Circuit Information & History
Goodwood Circuit is a historic venue for both two- and four-wheeled motorsport in the United Kingdom. The 3.8 kilometres (2.4 mi) circuit is situated near Chichester, West Sussex, close to the south coast of England, on the estate of Goodwood House, and completely encircles Chichester/Goodwood Airport. This is the racing circuit dating from 1948, not to be confused with the separate hillclimb course located at Goodwood House and first used in 1936.
The racing circuit began life as the perimeter track of RAF Westhampnett airfield, which was constructed during World War II as a relief airfield for RAF Tangmere. The first race meeting took place on 18 September 1948, organised by the Junior Car Club and sanctioned by the Duke of Richmond and Gordon. The winner of the first race was P. de F. C. Pycroft, in his 2,664 c.c. Pycroft-Jaguar, at 66.42 m.p.h. Stirling Moss won the 500cc race (later to become Formula 3), followed by Eric Brandon and "Curly" Dryden, all in Coopers.
Goodwood became famous for its Glover Trophy non-championship Formula One race, Goodwood Nine Hours sports car endurance races run in 1952, 1953 and 1955, and the Tourist Trophy sports car race, run here 1958-1964. The cars that raced in those events can be seen recreating (in shorter form) the endurance races at the Goodwood Revival each year in the Sussex trophy and the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy (RAC TT).
Goodwood has, over the years, played host to many famous drivers: Mike Hawthorn and Graham Hill had their first single seat races there, Roger Penske visited in 1963, and Jim Clark and Jack Sears competed in 1964. The accident that ended Stirling Moss's International career happened at St. Mary's Corner in 1962
