72nd Members Meeting

| 30 Mar 2014


The first GRRC Members’ Meeting since 1966 kicked off with a bang on 29 March, with a thunderous drive from Jackie Oliver and a rush through the field from Emanuele Pirro sending a charge of excitement through the crowd. The electric atmosphere continued away from the track too, with paddock access granted to all ticket holders. The school house theme added to the inclusive feeling of the weekend, especially for younger visitors, who were able to play croquet, race with an egg and spoon and even try their hand at a pub quiz in order to gain points for their team. The event, modelled on the Goodwood Revival, was a complete success.
