All our photos (100s) can be seen on our Goodwood Festival of Speed Facebook photo album.

Goodwood Festival of Speed opens with another sky-sweeping sculpture

Goodwood-festival-of-speed-LogoAs the sun comes up on the 25th Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard this morning, early visitors will be treated to another iconic creation by sculptor Gerry Judah, this year jointly presented by Goodwood and Formula 1® in celebration of the extraordinary life and career of Bernie Ecclestone.

The jaw-dropping work is in recognition of the ‘The Five Ages of Ecclestone’ (see below); five defining eras of Bernie’s career, as a driver, manager, team owner, impresario and quite simply as a legend of the sport. Each age is portrayed on the Central Feature by a different car, glinting high up on 5 arms, shooting out of a perfect, white circle.

This year?s sky-sweeping Central Feature by sculptor Gerry Judah is in celebration of the extraordinary life and career of Bernie Ecclestone.   The jaw-dropping work has been conceived by Judah, Goodwood and Formula 1® in recognition of the 'The Five Ages of Ecclestone'; five defining eras of Bernie?s career, as a driver, manager, team owner, impresario and quite simply as a legend of the sport. Each age is portrayed on the iconic Central Feature by a different car, glinting high up on 5 arms, shooting out of a perfect, white circle.

“Coming up with a sculpture for Goodwood is always a challenge”, said Judah. “They have to be different, dynamic and dangerous, as motorsport itself. This year is no exception given we are celebrating an individual, a phenomenon, and what better way than producing a firecracker.”

Goodwood Festival of Speed and F1 celebrate Bernie Ecclestone’s life in motorsport

Goodwood-festival-of-speed-LogoFor the first time ever, the Central Feature at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard (June 29th – July 2nd) will celebrate an individual rather than an honoured marque. This year the giant sculpture sweeping the sky in front of Goodwood house will be in celebration of Bernie Ecclestone’s extraordinary life and career.

Bernard Charles Ecclestone, known to friend and foe alike simply as Bernie, is one of the most influential people in the history of motor sport. Over the last 40 years he has transformed Formula One, using his legendary vision and business acumen to develop the sport into a multi-billion dollar global phenomenon.

“This is not so much a tribute, but rather a Goodwood celebration of a racer who has had such a huge influence on the sport that we all love,” said Lord March, the Festival’s founder. “And now that Bernie has stepped aside from running Formula One, he has agreed to spend the weekend at the Festival with many of the great names with whom he has worked during a life dedicated to racing. It’s his first visit to the Festival and he will bring with him some great historic Grand Prix cars from his incredible collection.”
