Members’ Meeting’s glorious return

Vinatge cars at Goodwood Members Meeting

Short but spectacular: the paired SF Edge sprints provided tyre-smoking Edwardian spectacle at Goodwood’s 78th Members’ Meeting, autumn leaves forming an unusual backdrop to an event postponed from spring due to the pandemic.

Next year’s meeting returns to springtime.
