The Goodwood FoS sculpture

For 18 years we’ve seen dramatic sculptures from designer Gerry Judah grace the front lawn of Goodwood house, and this year he’s collaborated with show sponsors Mazda to create a centrepiece inspired by the Japanese firm’s ‘Soul in Motion’ tagline. 

The sculpture, a bespoke design by Goodwood’s loyal sculptor Gerry Judah, is based around the theme of “Flat Out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge”. The towering design features 720 metal beams twirling 40 metres upwards, not entirely dissimilar to the double-helix structure of DNA. At the top is Mazda’s legendary rotary-engined 787B Le Mans racer, and the LM55 Gran Turismo Vision concept. The whole feature is said to weigh 120 tonnes. Read more here…
