provisional F1 dates:
30th June – Austrian Grand Prix, Spielberg
14th July – British Grand Prix, Silverstone
28th July – German Grand Prix, Hockenheim

anyone have an informed opinion when FoS could fit in, July 5-7 or 19-21??
it's provisional i know, but i'm going to have to gamble on dates and cross fingers!

This happened before and they went for the earlier date because of possible clashes with their own horse racing and the Silverstone Classic.

I've booked my hotel for 4-5th July, taken a chance for the past 3 years and not been wrong yet, just saying wink

All accommodation ( at anything like a reasonable price ) has already been booked out, up to about a 15 miles radius of Chichester, for the FOS dates, as far as I can tell. Unless you fancy camping in a field.

Any ideas when tickets usually go on sale?

27th October for GRRC members (including Fellowship). 5th November for the general public.

I'm sure I read it was 29th (just checked it did say 29th at the top of the email) - further down it says 5th November for general public.

It's a bit confusing. The Goodwood website https://www.goodwood.com/grrc/event-coverage/festi... says:

"Tickets for the general public go on sale November 5th, although by signing up to the GRRC Fellowship you can beat the crowds and secure your tickets one week early."

One week before 5th November is 29th October.

My guess is that it means:

Saturday 27th October: GRRC members
Monday 29th October: Fellowship members
Monday 5th November: Public

The Goodwood website isn't renown for its ease of use!

Yes although you will have to renew membership first.

I reckon you’ll need a couple of days as you’ll want to wander around looking at the cars in the paddocks, and watch what’s on the Hill. You can’t do both at the same time. I always buy a grandstand seat too, as it’s good to have somewhere to sit and watch over the head of the crowds. The grandstand tickets are “roving” so you’re not tied to a particular stand

We did 4 days with camping, expecting it to be too much. But neither Swmbo nor I got bored, and when we watched coverage on TV realised we’d missed some stuff too!

Take some good shoes as there’s a lot of walking. Plus I’d recommend taking sandwiches in too as the food is (1) low quality (2) high price and (3) big queues at peak times.

But it is a brilliant event, we will be back in 2020 (FOS one year, Revival the next year, one year off, then FOS etc)
