The Goodwood Circuit is a former RAF fighter base, converted into a race track after World War II. It hosted a non-championship Formula 1 event, known as the "Glover Trophy", from 1949 to 1965, and has long been used for testing by local teams, including McLaren.
Circuit History[edit | edit source]
The land where the track is now located was farmland, owned by the Duke of Richmond, until the RAF decided it would be suitable as an emergency backup fighter base. It was later opened as RAF Westhampnett, a satellite base to RAF Tangmere. The runways were all grass, with only the perimeter road paved. It is this perimeter road that now constitutes the race track.
