Goodness Gracious18th July 2012
The Lotus marque took centre stage at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed. During a black tie dinner on Thursday night Lord March revealed one of Gerry Judah’s most dramatic and elegant works yet. Something between a mobius strip and infinity symbol it seemed to never stop. On every surface of the ‘monocoque’ structure sat a Lotus Formula 1 car from the sixties to the present day. And in a wonderful finale, the temporary installation was dramatically presented with a display of classical music, fireworks and illuminations. All of the feature sculptures have been impressive but this one was truly beautiful and if this isn’t a shot of adrenaline for Lotus then I don’t know what might be.
