2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival Posters Introduced
For 2011, Goodwood's artwork collection is expanded with the introduction of the official printed posters for the 2011 Festival of Speed (July 1-3) and Revival (September 16-18). The motorsport prints are now available in limited numbers for GBP20 each from the Goodwood Shop, which is located at the Motor Circuit and online.
The Festival's 2011 theme is ‘Racing Revolutions – Quantum leaps that shaped motor sport,' with this celebrating the relentless effort for increased speed. The 2011 Revival poster image depicts the '4 WPD’ Noddy Coombs lightweight development Jaguar E-Type racing at Goodwood and marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic vehicle.
"The centenary of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” - the Indianapolis 500 - is a 2011 Festival highlight with a stunning gathering of Indy cars and drivers due to appear at Goodwood in July. Illustrating this Indy 500 focus, Peter Hearsey has painted the striking wedged 1968 Lotus Type 56 of Joe Leonard rounding the first right-hand bend on the challenging Festival of Speed hillclimb. The innovative turbine Lotus 56 Indy car used four wheel drive to get the most out of the 500 bhp Pratt and Whitney gas turbine engine."
