Goodwood has announced that the 79th Members’ Meeting is set to celebrate the glorious V10 era of Formula 1. Taking place from 9 – 10 April 2022, the F1 celebration is the the second demonstration taking place at this years Members’ Meeting.
The exciting spectacle will feature approximately 20 Grand Prix cars from 1989 to 2005, the performance demonstration will showcase the V8, V10 and V12 engines which provided Formula 1’s iconic soundtrack throughout the 1990s and early 2000s.
Home to the non-championship Glover Trophy race before it closed its doors in 1966, the Goodwood Motor Circuit will once again come alive with the sound of Grand Prix cars as examples from the powerhouses of the era – including Ferrari, McLaren and Williams – take to the track alongside a variety of mid-field models and backmarkers across the weekend.
The 79th Members’ Meeting will see Goodwood reunite some of the star drivers of the V10 era with cars from their careers, as well as giving modern racers their first experience of these mighty machines.
The Formula 1 demonstration also joins the confirmed celebration of Porsche’s legendary 956 and 962, marking 40 years since the 956’s first Le Mans win.
Achieving near-total domination in the 1980s, the 956 secured Le Mans victories in 1982, ’83, ’84 and ’85, with the follow up 962 continuing Porsche’s winning ways in ’86 and ’87. Marking 40 years since the 956’s first Le Mans win, the Members’ Meeting demonstration will first take place on Saturday evening as the sun sets, recreating the iconic setting of the Circuit de la Sarthe, with the assembled cars set to take to the track once again on Sunday.
Goodwood is looking to invite in the region of 20 956 and 962s to the Members’ Meeting along with some of the 177 different drivers who saw success behind the wheel of these giants of Group C.
