There will be plenty of event debutants too. Among those confirmed to race, Guy Smith, Dieter Quester, Neel Jani, Alex Wurz and Hans-Joachim Stuck have never raced at Goodwood before while Romain Dumas has raced only at the Revival and not at the Members’ Meeting.
Smith, who won Le Mans in 2003 at the wheel of a Bentley Speed 8, said, “I can’t wait for the Members’ Meeting. I have attended the Festival of Speed quite a few times with Bentley, and it’s always such a fantastic event, but I’ve never done an event at the circuit.
“I am still a relative novice on the Goodwood Circuit as while I’ve done a few manufacturer track days, I still have a lot to learn. It’s a real old-school circuit with some fantastic sweeping, fast corners that always provides amazing racing.
“I have also never done any historic racing before, but I have done some historic rallying in both a Mk1 and Mk2 Ford Escort in the RAC Rally, which was brilliant fun. I’ll be racing in the Gerry Marshall Trophy, and from what I have seen, and heard, the racing is epic! To see so many iconic cars, that I grew up watching as a young boy, out on track together will be a real treat.”
