The 73rd Goodwood Members' Meeting was held March 20-22, 2015 at the 2.4-mile Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England. The Members' Meeting was revived in 2014 for Members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club to continue the tradition of the 71 club motor sport events held at Goodwood from 1948-66.
The Goodwood Members Meeting 2015 featured twelve races, including the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 production saloons from 1970 to 1982; Les Leston Cup for 1960 to 1966 British sports cars; John Aldington Trophy for pre-1966 2-litre Porsche 911s; Earl Howe Trophy for pre-1935 Grand Prix racers; Bruce McLaren Trophy for pre-1966 Can-Am and Group 7 prototypes and the Salvadori Cup for 1955 to 1960 Sports Prototypes. This year's Meeting also saw sensational on-track displays from 1970s high-airbox Formula 1 cars, McLaren F1 GTRs and Group C Le Mans monsters.
