Goodwood is delighted to announce the race schedule for the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport (Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 April 2024). The previously announced Can-Am demonstration and Ken Miles Cup will be joined by a further ten races across what is set to be a weekend full of festivities for the Goodwood Road Racing Club.

Full details as follows:
Saturday
Hailwood Trophy Part One – RETURNING
Returning to the Members’ Meeting for the fourth year running, the Hailwood Trophy will host 250cc and 350cc Grand Prix Motorcycles and Formula 750 motorcycles including the likes of the Yamaha TZ350G, Honda CB750 and Ducati 750S. The competition is split across two races over the weekend with a cumulative final placement confirmed after the second race on Sunday.

S.F. Edge Trophy Part One – RETURNING
Following the return of the much-loved S.F. Edge Trophy to the 80th Members’ Meeting this year, the Edwardian giants will battle it out on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit once again in 2024. The two five-lap races will see the likes of the Darracq 200hp, Sunbeam Indianapolis and Goodwood-favourite FIAT S76 – ‘The Beast of Turin’ – test their mettle. Weekend ticket holders can enjoy these epic machines in action on both days of the event.

Gordon Spice Trophy – RETURNING
The blue-riband race of the Members’ Meeting, the 45-minute two-driver Gordon Spice Trophy is for homologated saloon cars of a type that raced in FIA Appendix J Group 1 between 1970 and 1982 or the British Saloon Car Championship between 1976 and 1982. Expect to see Ford Capri Mk3s, Rover SD1s and Chevrolet Camaro Z28s on track.

Sunday
Derek Bell Cup – RETURNING
Making its sixth appearance on the Members’ Meeting race list, the Derek Bell Cup will kick off the racing action on Sunday morning. Named for a Goodwood legend and regular event attendee, the 20-minute contest for 1000cc Formula 3 cars built between 1964 and 1970 will include the Brabham BT28, Chevron B15 and March 703.

Hailwood Trophy Part Two – RETURNING

Parnell Cup – RETURNING
Named for the “Emperor of Goodwood”, Reg Parnell, who won the first ever Goodwood Trophy at the West Sussex Circuit’s inaugural race meeting in 1948, this race will feature Grand Prix, Formula 2 and voiturette cars of a type that raced between 1935 and 1953, such as the Maserati 4CM, Cooper-Bristol Mk2 T23 and Connaught A-type.

Ken Miles Cup – NEW
The previously-announced Ken Miles Cup will celebrate 60 years of the Ford Mustang with a grid made up exclusively of first generation Ford Mustangs to honour British driver, engineer and mechanic Ken Miles who claimed the first major race victory for the model. The 45-minute, two-driver race will see Grand Prix and 24 Hours of Le Mans winners as well as Touring Car Champions go head to head in this headline competition.

Graham Hill Trophy – RETURNING
The celebrated driver at the 2022 Goodwood Revival, Graham Hill gives his moniker to the fifth running of a race that made its first appearance at the 74th Members’ Meeting in 2016. The Trophy is for closed- cockpit GT cars of a type that raced up to 1966, so expect to see some spectacular examples of Jaguar E-Types, AC Cobras and Lotus Elan 26Rs in action on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Surtees Trophy – RETURNING
Goodwood-stalwart John Surtees would have celebrated his 90th birthday in 2024 and the Surtees Trophy makes a welcome return to the Members’ Meeting race roster. For sports-racing prototypes of a type that raced between 1960 and 1966, the entry list for the Surtees Trophy will include Lola T70 Spyders, McLaren M1As and Ford GT40s.

S.F. Edge Trophy Part Two – RETURNING

Grover-Williams Trophy – RETURNING
The 81st Members’ Meeting will mark the 90th anniversary of the Bugatti Type 35 with the Grover- Williams Trophy for 1920s Grand Prix cars featuring Bugatti Type 35Bs, Bugatti Type 51s and Delage 15 S8s. The Trophy is named for William Grover-Williams who won the first Monaco Grand Prix, completing 100 laps in a Bugatti Type 35B.

Gordon Spice Sprint
The cars from the Gordon Spice Trophy return to the track for a 20-minute Sprint, this time with just their owners going head to head.

Peter Collins Trophy – RETURNING
Jaguar D-Types, Aston Martin DB3Ss and Maserati 300Ss will take to the track for the final race of the weekend: the Peter Collins Trophy, for sports racing cars that were in use between 1948 and 1955. Featuring cars from the years when Collins was most prolific on the European circuits, it’s a timely celebration as Collins’s legacy is revisited in the upcoming Ferrari film.

Please note that while the races for the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport are confirmed, the schedule is provisional and subject to change. A full timetable and entry list will be available in the final weeks preceding the event.
