The Goodwood Festival of Speed is underway and Mazda has taken the wraps off this year’s sculpture.
Measuring 40 meters (131.2 feet) tall, the sculpture was created by Gerry Judah and features 418 steel beams which weigh 120 tonnes. The sculpture also pays tribute to Mazda’s motorsport heritage as it has the 787B race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991 as well as a full-scale model of the LM55 Vision Gran Turismo.
According to Mazda Executive Officer Ikuo Maeda “When we first started talking about the central feature at Goodwood, we wanted it to exemplify the brand through our KODO design philosophy. Gerry has faithfully expressed our brand in a striking and beautiful structure that is clearly KODO. There is a lightness and strength to the sculpture, yet it gives the cars movement and energy.”
