The organisers of the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed events have announced that the event will not take place in 2020. The Goodwood Revival began in 1998 and has been a key part of the historic motorsport calendar ever since, attracting many thousands of visitors every September to revel in a celebration of historic cars, motorsport and vintage fashion.
In a statement, Goodwood said,
"Sadly, we have had to take the decision not to hold the Festival of Speed and Revival this year. All ticket holders have the option to rollover their tickets or request a refund.
As we rely so heavily on our headline events, their absence places not only future events but even the long-term future of the estate under considerable strain. With this in mind, we are today reinvigorating the Goodwood Supporters’ Association (GSA) in the hope that the Goodwood community will stand beside us as we weather this storm together. As well as the options to rollover tickets to 2021 or request a refund, any ticket-holder can also choose to exchange a proportion of their 2020 ticket value in return for additional GSA benefits.
For those without tickets that would like to join the GSA and show their support, there are a range of GSA levels with various benefits at each level in recognition of your support. We appreciate this is a difficult time for everyone, and one which is surrounded by uncertainty.
We hope that this range of options across all of our customer groups will allow people to make an informed choice to suit their personal circumstances, and will help preserve the spirit of Goodwood, and our unique interpretation of the sport we all enjoy."
There is talk from various media outlets of an alternative 'virtual' event to be announced in October, as soon as we receive news on this we will share it with you.
