Goodwood to host first-ever competitive sidecar Shoot-Out at the 81st Members’ Meeting
·        First-ever sidecar Shoot-Out announced for the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport. 

·        The 81st Members’ Meeting will take place Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 April 2024.

·        Tickets are on sale at and can be purchased by Members and Fellows of the Goodwood Road Racing Club.


Goodwood is excited to announce that the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport will host a competitive on-track battle with an impressive collection of sidecars going head-to-head in a Shoot-Out.

Taking to the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the very first time, up to eight modern racing sidecars will assemble for an exhilarating on-track contest. Keeping spectators on the edge of their seats, the competition will showcase a combination of high speeds, tight turns, and the necessity for precise teamwork between driver and passenger, with the Shoot-Out also marking the first-time contemporary vehicles have competitively taken to the Motor Circuit for a public event since 1966.

Spectators can expect to see a variety of sessions taking place across the weekend, from qualifying and head-to-head battles, to the top four drivers taking on the first-ever sidecar Shoot-Out. 

Goodwood is delighted to be working alongside eight-time Superside FIM World Sidecar Champion Tim Reeves on bringing together an impressive collection of sidecars from across the racing disciplines. A prominent figure in British sidecar racing, Reeves is renowned for co-piloting alongside Patrick Farrance, Ashley Hawes and younger brother Tristan Reeves. The sidecar showdown will welcome some of the most iconic drivers and passengers including 14-time TT winner and three-time FIM World Champion Ben Birchall and two-time FIM World Champions Emmanuel Clement and Todd Ellis.

Tim Reeves, eight-time Superside FIM World Sidecar Champion, said: “It’s been a pleasure to work alongside the Goodwood Content Team on bringing such a spectacular collection of sidecars. With incredible speed, high adrenaline and nail-biting cornering, Sunday's Sidecar Shoot-Out will definitely bring something new to the Goodwood Members’ Meeting.”

The competition will take place across the weekend - with the Shoot-Out taking place on Sunday - and joins the previously announced Canadian-American Cup demonstration and full race schedule for the 81st Members' Meeting. 

Tickets for the 81st Members’ Meeting are available to Goodwood Road Racing Club Members and Fellows here. Further information about joining the Fellowship, including the host of benefits on offer, is available here.
