The global pandemic has caused havoc throughout our motorsport world and the challenges faced by Goodwood are no exception. Having spent over £1 million on the infrastructure for the Members Meeting in 2020, the event had to be cancelled at the last minute. In this episode of the Historic Racing News Radio Show, Paul Tarsey talks to Alan Brewer, General Manager of the Goodwood Road Racing Club, about the way they battled through, talking everything from the 2020 ‘SpeedWeek’ to the full 2021 programme. Alan talks about the successes as well as the challenges and looks forward to 2022, talking about some of the plans GRRC have already put in place.
Paul Tarsey and Paul Jurd discuss the world of historic motorsport, looking back at recent events, including their opinions on Goodwood Speed Week, and some of the notable anniversaries marked in 2020. The team rewind to Porsche’s first outright Le Mans win and the loss of Jochen Rindt fifty years ago before rounding off with a look at the cream of the recent book releases in the first of our regular Historic Racing News podcasts.
