Finally the snow has melted and the Goodwood Festival of Speed is only a few months away. (Stand number 270 is where you’ll find us.)
I mentioned in the last update another large F1 sculpture would be added to display at Goodwood. Currently both new subjects have been sculpted and are being cast. The first, you all might have been aware of.
The Mercedes w135. It was shown and mentioned in the last update. You’ll see a few more images of it below. Plan is an edition of just four. All wall mounted on a large sheet of aluminium and the car painted in an alloy finish, so it will look very monochromatic, apart from the race numbers, it’ll be Richard Seaman’s car… Not too sure which race number to add yet? The main sting in the tail as with most of my large editions will be in the detail. Not going to reveal exactly what will be added to the edition just yet… But if you are all aware of the history of the silver arrows just before the second World War, you know the Third Reich funded the German race teams. I’ll leave you all guessing for now as to what might be added….
As for the second F1 subject, well it’s not a F1 car…. It’s a Le Mans car…. Mr Hawthorne’s D-type to be exact. You all know what the colour scheme will look like, again, wall mounted, an edition of just four. Take a look at the images to get an idea of scale and movement involved. As with the Mercedes, I’ll add a few more photo’s as things progress but the intention is to reveal both new subjects in all their wall mounted glory at the FoS.
Subject to snow……
Ohhh and before I forget, all you lovely French speaking fans can enjoy a nice little article about yours-truly in the latest edition of MOTO HEREOS which came out late March. I tried to smile…honest!… Apparently I’m the ‘magician of speed!’…. Think I might add that to the front of a Tee-shirt!
