We’re delighted to have received official communications from Goodwood today to confirm that their Festival of Speed will now go ahead.
In light of recent announcements by the government it was feared that 2021 would be the second year in a row that the annual festival would fall victim to the Covid global pandemic.
However, in an official Goodwood announcement today they reported:
Goodwood is pleased to confirm that the Festival of Speed will now form part of the Events Research Programme (ERP) as a pilot event.
The event is sold out across Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The capacities agreed with the ERP will mean that all 2021 Festival of Speed ticket, hospitality and grandstand pass holders will be able to attend as planned, including those with 2020 rolled over tickets.
As a pilot, all people on site will need to agree to the conditions of entry set out by the Events Research Programme in order to enjoy the event safely. This will include either having had both doses of the vaccine at least 14 days before the event, or proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test, which can be taken at home or at a recognised centre free of charge, within 48 hours of the event.
We will announce further details around conditions of entry, consent required from all fans to opt into the Event Research Programme and NHS Test and Trace requirements shortly.
This is fantastic news and full club members that are booked to attend can sign the club register using the link below and let your fellow members know which day you’re going.
