Goodwood dates confirmed for 2001

Goodwood’s ninth festival of Speed will take place on 6-8 July, 2001, three weeks later than usual, to avoid a clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Grand Prix calendar. Said a Goodwood spokesman: “Because the Festival uniquely marries modem and historic motorsport, it’s virtually impossible to find a weekend in the season which does not clash with a major international race. Formula One and Le Mans drivers have traditionally been among the meeting’s stars, thus our only option was to move it to July, a week before the British Grand Prix, which may

open more possibilities.” The Goodwood Motor Circuit’s fourth annual Revival meeting has retained its regular calendar slot, and will run on 14-16 September, the weekend before the inaugural British ChampCar race at Rockingham Motor Speedway. MP
