Goodwood History

The hillclimb course located at Goodwood House was first used in 1936. The racing circuit began life as the perimeter track of RAF Westhampnett airfield, which was constructed during World War II. 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 circuit was where both Mike Hawthorn and Graham Hill had their first single seat races. It was also where Stirling Moss ended his international career after his accident at St. Mary’s during the Glover Trophy on Monday 23 April..

Glorious Goodwood

Goodwood hosts the annual Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July and early August, which is one of the highlights of the British flat racing calendar. It is home to 3 of the UK’s 36 annual Group 1 flat races, the Sussex Stakes, the Goodwood Cup and the Nassau Stakes. Although the race meeting has become known as ‘Glorious Goodwood’, it is sponsored by Qatar and officially called the ‘Qatar Goodwood Festival’.
