You can get that on the main Goodwood website: https://www.goodwood.com/motorsport/goodwood-speed...

There is a link to download the timetable and entry list as a PDF: https://www.goodwood.com/globalassets/motorsport/s...

I'm guessing website launched today is where the streams will appear.
Thanks for that! Just what I was looking for. Some cracking lineups there, both cars and drivers!

Pretty good machinery in the shootout. With reasonably modern prototypes and i.dr shame some more modern f1 cars couldn't run though.

So IDR is taking the lap record then...

Wonder if it'll go sub-60s?

Lastest news I've seen is that VW has pulled the car out of the event

Wow that's quite an event, basically FoS mixed with The Revival and #MM.

Knowing how much Goodwood usually pay to have one of those cars in particular there, this must be costing millions. The commercial penalties must have been fairly severe if they are going to this much effort.

Sorry. Typed a message asking for link to the live stream. But I think have since found it. Seems to be on YouTube. Not sure if already posted and I missed it but just in case.

I have to say, the coverage has been superb so far. The use of a drone for the first time has provided some really great camera shots.
It just seems so odd seeing the place so empty. I’ve not missed an event for 15 years so watching the racing from my sofa seems so wrong!

I'm here - and it's surreal in a whole host of ways.

From weirdly mixed paddocks to discourage mingling, the lack of people, the cars that you'd never see in the paddocks at a MM or Revival.

If anyone's watching and sees a skinny dude wearing a New Zealand cap - that's little ol me.

Facebook feed is much better than the YouTube one for some reason.

YouTube has been stuttering all morning for me.

I agree the coverage is pretty good.

The racing is definitely excellent but for me the supercar parade was monotonously tedious and boring. It was clearly going to be never-ending when you saw the queue of cars that were going to do a lap, but as I'm supposed to be working anyway it was not unity to get some emails out of the way until it was finished. I guess they are committed to the manufacturers who are probably paying to be there to let them showcase their new cars.

But it's a pity good weather and an opportunity for more track time to see good racing is wasted to watch a bunch of drivers each doing a lap in brand-new supercar for no reason apart from a marketing exercise.

A bit like when they send a Subaru round the Isle of Man TT course when all the spectators are there to watch bike racing and they have to endure time wasted and a decent dry track for a bit of marketing activity.

Overall pretty good though and as I say the racing has been excellent. Looking forward to the next couple of days.

Does anyone know if you can get the track stream through YouTube? I can only see the “entertainment” stream there.

I’ve got the website track stream up on the TV through phone and old Apple TV but the quality isn’t as good, and limited web browser on the TV doesn’t seem to load it either! But the TV YouTube app works fine.

Enjoying it so far.

I’m watching through the Goodwood website which seems to work pretty well. Not tried the YouTube stream.

Given that this is being run solely for marketing/commercial reasons I think we will have to suck up whatever comes our way in that respect. The schedule (particularly on ITV) would appear to be full of quite a bit of 'filler'.

Flying lap or standing start? If the latter, it's going to need to be quite a lap...
Huh? Lola T70 is up there with my favourite cars, but that laptime will be annihilated by a fair few of the entrants.
Did the T70 set the record on a flying lap? If so, and today's shootout is one lap from a standing start, it's going to take something special to get anywhere near the record.

T70 did, in race.

However, if something like the IDR is there (I didn't see it today, but didn't go everywhere as busy prepping car), the standing start won't prevent it taking the record comfortably.

I'm not sure if the XJR9 is doing the shootout - but Justin Law has always been pretty exceptional in that up the hill...

IDR had to pull out so won't be competing this week.

I saw on the Nico Rosberg video of the IDR last week it had union jacks on the livery for it so assume it was a fairly last minute decision to pull it...

The official lap record will remain unchanged probably , as they can only be set in races. And if we are talking unofficial , there'll be many , many instances of the old record being broken already , as the circuit remained in use for years after its closure as a race circuit per se. Including by F1 teams . Not that it matters ,that much , but as far as I'm concerned the official Ring record remains with Bellof.

Used to live on Madgwick Lane so anytime we heard something loud my Dad would take us down for a look. In 1980 (I think) Nelson Piquet was doing some laps before the British GP. He was lapping around the 60 second mark which when you look at the state of the circuit back then was massively impressive.
A few years later the Richard Lloyd Racing Canon Porche 956 lapped consistently in the 1.06 1.07's.

Nice!

I only moved close to the circuit last year.

I'll be firing up a 289ci v8 within an hour - I'll raise my coffee cup to your dad. It's certainly loud!
