FatCreations Goodwood Road Race: Race the 82' Worlds Course!

In 1982 The World Road Race Championship’s were held in Goodwood, West Sussex. In 2020 Racing Club Ravenna will be hosting a road race on the same circuit. The National B, 75 mile race on Saturday June 27th will be open to Elite,1st,2nd & 3rd category riders and cover many of the roads used in that historic championship.
The UCI world Championships in 1982 took in a lap of Goodwood motor circuit before climbing Kennel Hill, turning right and finishing in front of the famous Goodwood race course. In the men's race Giuseppe Saronni of Italy took the win thanks, in part, to Greg Lemond chasing his own team mate, Jonathan Boyer down on the final climb. Mandy Jones of GB won the Women’s title after breaking away and holding on to a 10 second lead. Jones’s victory is often referred to as the "accidental win"
Organiser Seb Ottley told us
“We have worked hard over the last year and managed to get a 75 mile road race on most of the same course. Signing on at Goodwood motor circuit, the bunch will roll out of the motor racing circuit, straight over the roundabout and up the main climb. This will all be neutralised and once we are at the top of the climb the flag will drop as you pass over the 1982 World Championship finish line there will be 7 complete laps of the 10.7 mile clockwise circuit,it's a national B so there will be plenty of license points available. Thanks to Alistair McLean at Fatcreations we have a huge prize list through Hunt wheels, Upgrade bikes, Saddleback and Fabric bikes. Mark Warrington (Solent Pirates) has offered a £250 cash prize pot to be split between the top 3 placed juniors on top of the prizes we are offering. There are also prizes available for the best placed 2nd cat and 3rd cat as well as primes available throughout the race and we are hoping to get more sponsors on board as we get closer to the event.”

Team entry will be given priority with a max number of 6 riders per team. If there are places available on the line then riders from the same team can enter. Junior riders must ride on restricted gears and will have a gear check before and after the race.
HQ will be at Goodwood Motor Circuit. The Motor Circuit Cafe, The Goodwood Motor Circuit, Goodwood, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 0PH.There is plenty of parking on the outside of the circuit. Please turn left as you go through the main entrance, do not go through the tunnel into the centre of the motor circuit there are plenty of facilities on site.
