Goodwood Motor Circuit

Goodwood Motor Circuit is a prestigious motorsport venue in the United Kingdom, renowned for hosting both motorcycle and car racing events, including world-class events such as The Festival of Speed. Located just 11 miles from Thornham Marina, or about 24 minutes by car, this 3.8-kilometer circuit is uniquely positioned on the Goodwood Estate and encircles the Chichester/Goodwood Airport. Established in 1948, it stands distinct from the Goodwood Hillclimb course at Goodwood House, which dates back to 1936.
