Sculptor Gerry Judah has designed the Centrepiece for the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrating the Mazda Motor Corporation’s unique motorsport heritage with a powerful fusion of sculptural innovation and engineering precision.
The helix like sculpture is composed of 720 steel beams of varying lengths stacked in the manner of pristine matchsticks. The top of the structure features the rotary-engined 787B Le Mans winner and the LM55 Vision Gran Turismo concept, cantilevered 40 metres high over the spectators.
Featuring 120 tonnes of steel sections which, laid end-to-end, would stretch the entire 1235 metre length of the Goodwood Hill Climb, this beguiling structure is sculptor Gerry Judah’s most complex and sophisticated Centrepiece to date.
