The COVID-19 crisis has led to the postponement of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Originally scheduled for the 9-12 July, organisers are evaluating potential new dates for later in the year, with tickets already purchased for the event remaining valid.

“Over the last few weeks, we have been working together with everyone involved to understand the viability of the Festival of Speed going ahead in July,” explained the Duke of Richmond, owner of the Goodwood Estate.

He continued, “Due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus threat and not knowing whether the situation will have significantly improved by then, we sadly need to postpone the Festival of Speed in July.”

A fresh date for the 78th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, which was due to take place this weekend, is also being considered, while the future of the Goodwood Revival weekend planned for 11-13 September is also under review.
