Goodwood members' Meeting

I look forward to next weekend and the Goodwood members' meeting. It is my first marshal trip to Goodwood. Any hints and tips from the regulars? In particular, access to car park (I know the Revival traffic is bad, but I guess that won't be the case next week), sign-in, can we park at the post? I will be at post 13 (between St Mary's and Lavant corner. Any help, great fully received!

Have a decent read of the instructions that were sent. There are very specific requirements for Goodwood meetings, and this is a special "members only" event. Marshals are part of the show..

You need to park in the marshals car park and then walk to sign on (behind Woodcote corner). You can't access the circuit until 0700. There are no vehicles allowed into the circuit and you'll be taking a bus around to Post 13. You could walk, I walked to St Marys last year, but there's an airstrip in the way and it's a long way round.

Both days will be very busy and Saturday in particular is a long one. Marshals are invited to the Saturday evening event, but there is a dress code.

I've got Post 1 so looks like I'm part of the show. Should be a good weekend. Managed to blag a guest pass for my son as well.

Yep me to although I'll be taking it very steady especially as this is the first meeting since suffering a heart attack last October, I'm now a member of the 2 stent club. I'm on post 15 with my old buddies who have many years of experience, I'm sure they will be keeping an eye on me along with my fiancée; getting married early November @ Brooklands Museum.

See you all at sign on early Saturday morning

I too am on 13F, As this meeting is unlike the others you would be well advised to read the final instructions carefully, have a look on marshalsguide here:http://www.marshalsguide.com/index.php/Goodwood_Circuit Leave plenty of time to get to signing on. Once you have signed on it is (in effect) the circuits responsibility to get you to post as it is more than 500m. You will need all your standard kit, those in whites are along the start line, where they are in the public view (or more specifically the cameras view)
The car park is marked on the back of your car pass and will be clearly marked by road signs. It is not at the circuit. I am going to pm you my mobile number so you can ring me if you get completely lost. That way you won't.

Thank you all - I have now read the instructions properly... and they are pretty complete! I look forward to Saturday - unfortunately I cannot make the Sunday.

Looking forward to my first meeting of 2014, however i've just noticed the sign on time of 07:00 each day. As its about a 80 - 90 minute drive to the circuit and the clocks go forward this weekend I'm thinking about a B&B for the Saturday night. Not surprisingly there are none available at "reasonable" prices. If anyone has any room at their B&B please let me know, otherwise its "lack of sleep marshalling" this weekend. Thanks.

Nothing like a bit of forward planning! What about camping? Weather looks good.

Sign on starts at 0700, but there's potential to turn up a bit later... but Sunday will still feel very early!

The boy was not very happy when I pointed out we would be getting up at the equivalent of 0315 on Sunday morning to get there for 0700.

Thank you

A big thank you to all you guys that were there last weekend, much appreciated and I hope you all realise how much you guys meant to my late Dad.
I tried to give all posts a thumbs up on the slow down lap - apologies if I missed anyone.
I made sure I had my BMMC badge sewn on my race suit especially too, that and my Marshall Wingfield one, need some retro
I hope to see some of you soon and I hope you all enjoyed the event.

Gregor, I thought the meeting was a total blast, and reminded me a lot of the original Revival meetings. Great racing, and I think everyone involved should be extremely happy with the result.. a few issues with the Saturday evening, but not unexpected with a totally new concept.

I hope all of the drivers enjoyed it as well, they kept the marshals at the chicane entertained...

Marcus Pye did a good write up in Autosport and some excellent pics as well.

I posted this up nine years ago and it now hangs in my hallway, it is the first thing you see when entering my house…….
