It’s not often we’re asked to get our hands really dirty in the name of motor sport expression but in this instance we needed to shake up the status quo and have some serious fun with a spray gun.The ‘status quo being the VW Motorsport end of season celebration party in Wolfsburg with an exhibition of Helena El Mokni’s 14 iconic World Rally Championship photographs, elegantly framed in dark cedar ‘upstaged’ by two of her Global Rallycross shots from Las Vegas in bespoke, hand painted, sprayed and stencilled frames – with attitude.

Inspired by the graffiti art of Vegas and the figure work of American artist Keith Haring the frames used the stars and stripes graphic and key colours from the two Andretti Autosport operated VW Beetles, Rockstar yellow and 7Up green.

These funky additions to the exhibition set proved a popular choice as a further frame has recently been completed and is now adorning the wall of VW senior management.

The sun held out on the last day to create a truly ‘glorious’ Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012. Beautiful cars were driven as nature intended and the usual eclectic mix of die-hard petrol heads rubbing shoulders with young bronzed champagne-fuelled ladies. Whilst standing next to some, they were introduced to the new Zonda (with Horacio himself frantically polishing within earshot), “Isn’t that Japanese?” one asked. “No, that’s Honda.”

The presence of Interstate client Lotus (Case Study) both old and new was dominant and welcoming.

My ears are still ringing from the old Auto Union Racer being revved in the paddock…

Great day as ever.

For a car lover, it’s a great place to stroll around.
