GOODWOOD VOL 01: FULL THROTTLE
Goodwood Vol 01: Full Throttle by Blackbird Automotive follows on the heels of 2016’s successful Festival of Speed, taking in the sights, sounds and stories of one of the world’s most well-known and highly-regarded motoring events. Published in official partnership with the Goodwood Road Racing Club, it follows on from the Festival of Speed’s theme – “Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit Of Power”, exploring the bygone eras of motorsport where power reigned supreme. Opening with a foreword by Lord March himself, the volume attempts to encapsulate the spirit of the Festival of Speed with features on the aerodynamic artistry of F1 designer Gordon Murray and his championship winning BT52 Formula One car – equipped with the most powerful F1 engine ever built, the thunderous Can-Am and Group B icons of speed and the mind behind Goodwood’s famous towering sculptures, Gerry Judah.
Forty years on from his World Championship win, we also look back at the extroverted, 0-100 life of James Hunt, before taking in the wild world of 1980s turbo-era Formula 1 and the incredibly-rare beauty of BMW’s 328MM and Renault’s former legends of speed. The volume rounds out with a quick retrospective of Heuer’s new comeback kid – the Autavia, along with short stories from Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, Top Gear Editor-in-Chief Charlie Turner and the legendary Derek Bell.
