Hello,

Hope I post in the right section of the forum, let me know otherwise.

The grandstand tickets are sold out for Sunday. As an (expensive) alternative, I am considering buying this "Startline Club" hospitality package. I understand only me can decide if £294 per head is too much money but what would you do? Has anyone here ever bought that package or got any feedback? Any other recommendation?

Plan #B: do you know anyone or website where I could buy grandstand tickets for Sunday?

thank you

Ben

Goodwood's only official reseller used to be twickets.live. I'm not sure if it still is, and in any case I just looked and there is nothing there I'm afraid. frown I would strongly recommend not buying tickets from any other reseller, not only are prices likely to be well above face value but Goodwood can and do invalidate tickets on the secondary market.

I can't answer the first part of your question. I've been to almost every Goodwood event but never bought a hospitality package or even a grandstand seat. I take a camping chair, a bag of food and a large umbrella.

Personally I've never fancied the grandstands as I prefer to get as close as I can which is generally standing at the rope + I find I want to move around too often that I really wouldn't be able to justify it..

Also it's great watching some cars blast away but you don't get to watch the car at speed/being balanced in quite the same way you do at say Molecom..., ( where I think the banking with said chair/cool bag/umbrella Is a good shout )..

If money's no object then why not but otherwise I wouldn't bother..

Thank you too, Edmundo.

After attending the FOS for the last 20 odd years I’ve never had a grandstand.
Much prefer browsing and viewing from around the hill.
