Can modified vehicles be covered?
Absolutely. We understand that very few classic cars remain in the exact state in which they left the factory, and so upgrades and modifications can be catered for.

Will there be discounts for Goodwood Road Racing Club members?
Yes! Members and Fellows will receive discounted rates on their vehicle insurance policies.
