11:52 – Bernie Ecclestone’s career in motorsport will be celebrated as the ‘Central Feature’ at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, event organisers have announced.
Gerry Judah’s famous structure, which sits on the lawn in front of Goodwood House, has been transformed to highlight Ecclestone’s impact on motor racing over the years.
Goodwood will showcase ‘The Five Ages of Ecclestone’, representing the main areas of Ecclestone’s career – ‘driver’, ‘manager’, ‘team owner’, ‘impresario’ and ‘legend’.
Each age will be represented by a different car, fixed to the structure.
“This is not so much a tribute, but rather a Goodwood celebration of a racer who has had such a huge influence on the sport we all love,” said Festival of Speed founder Lord March.
