FAQ

General

When?

29th and 30th May

Where?

Goodwood Circuit, PO18 0PH

What time do gates open?

Gates open to the public at 9am both days and stay open until 5pm

Do you have an attendance limit?

Yes we are limiting the event to 3,500 people each day, tickets must be purchased in advance.

What do you mean by pre-98-ish?

Okay this is a more complicated answer. The definition of retro is a bit of a movable feast, right now to us if we were to put a date on it we'd say it was pre-98. However we are aware there is a grey area around that. We use the pre-98 rule as a guide and our judgement for anything in the grey areas.

Can I attend without a display car?

You most definitely can, just purchase a ticket and we'll get you parked in the standard car park, 16 and unders going free.

Can I bring a dog?

Yes, it MUST be on a lead at all times, it must be under control and you must clean up after your dog

Tickets

Where can I buy tickets?

Head to https://www.trybooking.com/uk/book/sessions?eid=17357 for all your ticket purchasing needs.

Can I buy tickets on the gate?

You can buy on the day of the event but not at the gate. Buy your tickets before you leave the house. You will need to bring them with you so we can scan them, on your phone or printed out.

Where are my tickets?

In your email. We are aware that these may go to your junk occasionally (although we've had a pretty good success rate with them so far). If you can't find your tickets or need them re-issuing please email our ticket desk

I rolled over my tickets what do I do?

Your rolled over ticket should be with you by now, in the email that you originally booked with. Please check that mail box and any associated junk/spam folders. If you can't find the ticket please email our ticket desk

Do I need to print my tickets?

Ideally yes, or you can screenshot it on your phone. We need to be able to scan the ticket at entry time so please have it available to present as soon as you get to the show

Displaying your car

How do I get to display my car?

Saturday displays are now full, you may be able to get a spot on Sunday if you turn up in something pre-98.

Do I still need to get a ticket?

Yes you do. When you are on display, either in a club or retro display spot, you will have a pass to put in your windscreen. This pass gets you to the right spot in the show, you will still need tickets to get into the show (per person, 16 and under free).

Where are cars displayed?

We use two layouts for the event, on the Saturday and Sunday our curated display paddocks take over the in-field area. On the Saturday all the display cars are on the out field parking areas, with the public parking being outside the venue. On the Sunday we use the out field area for the club displays and put all the individual retro parking/display cars on the track.

Clubs

How do I book a club stand?

Club space is full for this year.

Do I still need a ticket?

Yes you do. When you are on display, either in a club or retro display spot, you will have a pass to put in your windscreen. This pass gets you to the right spot in the show, you will still need tickets to get into the show (per person, 16 and under free).

Where are the club stands?

Club stands are on the out field (next to the outside of the track) on the Sunday

Camping

When can I camp from?

Camping opens at 3pm on Friday 28th May. We have two different tickets for camping, the standard Weekender ticket lasts until 5pm on Sunday. There is also a Long Weekender ticket which allows you to leave by midday on Monday, particularly useful if you have a long journey home.

Can I have a fire?

Fires are allowed however they MUST be off the ground and contained. All ash is to be put in the "hot" bin provided on site.

Can I bring my Caravan/Campervan/Trailer tent?

You can indeed, you may end up parked along an edge of our camping field, just in case we have some inclement weather, it makes it easier to move you, and easier to organise the rest of the camping.

Are there food vendors?

We will have food vendors available on the Saturday evening on the campsite

Is there a "tat" auction?

Sadly not, we can't encourage large groups of people to gather in a single place.

Track

How can I get on track?

Saturday sprint applications are now closed, we have more room on the Auto Solo so currently the applications for that are still open.

Do I need a helmet?

Yes you do, there is helmet hire at Goodwood, but if you have your own we recommend you bring it.

What about other safety equipment?

There is no other safety equipment requirement, however you need to have your legs fully covered, no shorts/short skirts

What is the auto solo about?

A bit lower speed than the sprint, but no less exhilerating. A test of skill piloting your car around a predefined course. Unlike an auto-test there is no reversing element, it is an ideal way to have a load of fun with your car in a way that shouldn't risk serious damage if you get it a bit wrong.
