Every year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed an enormous sculpture is erected just in front of Goodwood house itself. Since 1997 the sculpture has been designed by renowned installation artist Gerry Judah and over the years it has developed into one of the most eye-catching and iconic aspects of the event.
In 2015 the sculpture was a celebration of Mazda cars and was topped by two of their most impressive cars - the rotary engine 787B Le Mans racer (the only Japanese car to take outright victory at Le Mans) and the LM55 Vision Gran Turismo concept car.
The sculpture was made up of 720 individual spiraling beams that form a tower, topped with the two cars.
Last year I was commissioned to document the removal of the sculpture after the event. The task took place over the space of several days and resulted in about 15,000 images being shot in order to produce the following time lapse. Editing the images into a record of the event was not part of the brief so whilst the client may have done this themselves I never saw the end result. Coming across the images last week whilst archiving I decided to do a quick edit and this is the result.
