The situation regarding the future of Goodwood for testing the holding of sprints and functions has been clarified. The venue will be permitted to continue as before but within the following limits. No more than five cars or motorcycles will be allowed on the circuit at any one time. There will be tighter restrictions on noise — for some years all vehicles using the circuit have had to have silencers but not all silencers used in the past have been as effective as they might have been. Use of the circuit on Sundays has been cut down and use on Bank Holidays has been banned.

The agreement has been made between the Chichester District Council and Goodwood Terrena Ltd and, if users are sensible, it should allow the use of Goodwood into the foreseeable future.
