In an appeal for funding, the Duke of Richmond has relaunched the Goodwood Supporters’ Association (GSA) which, in the 1990s, was formed by a group of racing enthusiasts who campaigned to bring racing back to the Goodwood circuit, which had closed in 1966.
This time, supporters are being asked to make a one-off contribution in return for lifetime membership and a range of benefits, which include having their name engraved at the circuit or in the parkland where the Festival of Speed is hosted.
“For a business like ours, which is all about bringing people together to enjoy the things they love, social distancing has had a catastrophic impact on our ability to operate,” said the Duke of Richmond. “We have, of course, placed health above all else, but now we begin to face the implications of the ‘new normal’ as the government attempts to balance the demands of health and the economy.
“The new GSA will be vital in keeping this dream alive. Without the help of Goodwood Road Racing Club Members rallying together as a community and becoming part of the GSA, we will not be able to preserve Goodwood’s unique, intimate version of the sport we all love.”
