Each year, London-based artist Gerry Judah creates a massive sculpture in tribute of an iconic car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, an event held annually in Sussex, UK. This year Judah erected a soaring 26 meters sculpture featuring two Mercedes-Benz racing cars – a 1934 Mercedes-Benz W 25 Silver Arrow and a 2013 Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W04, speeding past each other in midair, connected though a 90 meter steel arch. The sculpture celebrates 120 years of motorsport heritage by Mercedes-Benz.
Previously Judah has created sculptures for Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Renault, Ford, Rolls-Royce, Honda, Toyota, Land Rover, Alfa Romeo and Lotus at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed. His monumental sculptures are always the central attraction of the annual event.
