“72nd Members Meeting”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I first went to a BARC meeting at Goodwood in 1954 & it was again a great thrill to enjoy the atmosphere that existed in those days.

“Fun!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My husband is a racing nut and we came across an open day quite by chance. He was in heaven watching the locals drive their cars like they can't on the local roads. Everyone was very friendly and equally enthusiastic.

“Driving fun”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Took my hubby here for two driving experiences.
First was excellent, well sign posted and lots of helpful staff to ensure all ran smoothly.
Second was also excellent in the end, turned up to no sign posts, got sent from one building to an other to find out my husband hadn't been booked in, but staff very helpful and got it all sorted out and the hubby had a great time. If cars are your thing then this is a great day out.

“Excellent day out”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Wonderful retro atmosphere, buildings art deco and well kept. Nice cafe with view, nice staff. Only wish that there was a shop. I think that they would do very well with a shop so customers could purchase a souvenir of their day out.

“classic cars in a classic setting”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

It's been an ambition of mine to lap Goodwood in an E-type Jaguar and yesterday I was able to enjoy that along with driving a Lotus Cortina and a beautiful Aston Martin DB4.
Driving the well balanced Lotus first gave a novice like me a chance to become somewhat familiar with the track and the instructor was helpful in building your confidence in driving the track. The track is well laid out with braking points and apex's marked by cones which is really helpful.
Don't expect to take this cars around the track like you're racing in the Revival meeting, the Aston is red-lined at 4500 which you can pull in top down the Lavant straight but that is understandable considering the value and rarity of these vehicles.
The instructors also vary in how much freedom they give you, the one I had in the E-type was particularly reluctant to allow you find your own line and took charge of the braking and steering quite frequently which was frustrating.
Worth mentioning what a classic setting the Goodwood track is set in and together with these iconic cars it adds up to a memorable experience.
