Newport, Rhode Island, May 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Goodwood is delighted to announce Audrain Motorsport as its new presenting partner for the Members’ Meeting. The Audrain Group shares Goodwood’s commitment to celebrating automotive history, with the ethos behind its Museum, Motor Week and Motorsport memberships aligning with that of the Goodwood Road Racing Club (GRRC) and the Members’ Meeting event.
Founded in 2014 with the aim of preserving the rich automotive history of its Newport, Rhode Island home, the Audrain Automobile Museum sits at the heart of American automotive history. With a collection of over 350 cars and motorcycles ranging from the pre-War era to the 2000s, the Audrain Museum also presents the annual Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week (30 September – 3 October 2021).
As at Goodwood, Audrain Motorsport is deeply passionate about the shared automotive experience, and, like the GRRC, offers its members exclusive benefits and opportunities to entertain their love of all things automotive. This year’s Members’ Meeting is set to be the focal point of Audrain Motorsport’s “Grand Motoring Experiences – Goodwood Members’ Meeting 2021”. The tour will also include a Track Experience at Goodwood Motor Circuit, as well as excursions to Highclere Castle and the McLaren Technology Centre.
Goodwood is very much looking forward to welcoming Audrain Motorsport as its new presenting partner at the 78th Members’ Meeting (16 – 17 October 2021). The action-packed weekend of motor racing will include the S.F. Edge Trophy for Edwardian leviathans, and the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars of the 1970s and early ’80s, as well as a rally sprint. Additional special demonstrations, along with star cars and drivers, will be announced in the coming months.
Donald Osborne, CEO of Audrain Motorsport, said: “We are so pleased to be partnering with Goodwood for the Members Meeting – as the Audrain Group is dedicated to the experiential side of automotive enjoyment, it is an obvious and ideal match. The Duke of Richmond and his team have worked at the highest level to create unforgettable, truly immersive events and we look forward to a long-lasting collaboration.”
The Duke of Richmond said: “When we revived the Members’ Meeting in 2014, we wanted to recapture the intimacy and camaraderie of the members-only race weekends held at Goodwood Motor Circuit from 1949-66, for our wonderfully supportive GRRC Members and Fellows. Audrain Motorsport absolutely shares Goodwood’s philosophy for creating and sharing exceptional motoring experiences, and I am delighted to welcome them as presenting partner for the Members’ Meeting.”
The 78th Members’ Meeting will take place from Saturday 16 – Sunday 17 October. Tickets are sold out but GRRC Members and Fellows will be able to watch the exclusive live stream over the weekend. Join the Fellowship.
