A Photo Gallery From Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2018
Sponsored by Michelin
On July 14, the Goodwood Festival of Speed took place. I was invited by one of the main sponsors, Michelin to photograph and enjoy the festival. It was my first time at this stunning venue in the South of England. The amount of great and special cars during the event was incredible – I’m still super amazed.
One of my favorites highlights was the so-called “Central Feature” in front of Goodwood House done by the British artist and designer Gerry Judah. It is a sculpture in tribute to the main topic of the event of each year. In this year’s edition, six Porsches were attached to a 52 meter-high star-shaped white structure. It was created to mark the 70th anniversary of the first Porsche production using the most important cars in Porsche’s life, including the 911, the 959 Dakar, and of course the original 356.
It was a real pleasure to be there, to photograph and admire each car in detail. I’ve received messages on Instagram from people wondering if I was going to post something more from the event and here is my selection of photos to relive what was the Goodwood Festival of Speed!
A few years ago during my visit to Venezuela, I had the opportunity to photograph this great Porsche in a location that completely reflects what it once was and what it is today, one of the countries with the largest oil reserves. To put it in context, Venezuela between the 70s and 90s had the best moments in terms of economic growth, caused by the oil boom. But since the 40s, there was already a huge development in that industry. Somehow, it is relevant to point out that in the 50s, during the dictatorship, the president Marcos Perez Jimenez was passionate about cars, racing, and competitions. For instance, he used to close the entire streets of Caracas for racing, inviting renowned figures from the automotive world like Fangio to race with him.read more
Last summer in Berlin, I met Oliver and his wonderful 1990 BMW 750i. I’m a fan of big BMWs from the 80s/90s, they are very spacious and classy. One thing, in particular, I like about this car, was its red interior. I think it makes the car much more special.
Looking for the perfect location, as I always try to do, I found several options to make the car look great. As you know I am a big fan of coupes, but a sedan like this one always wanted to photograph. Here is part of what we did that sunny afternoon and some questions to Oliver about his 7 Series.
While I was in Barcelona, I had the chance to meet Joaquin and his amazing car. He brought me to the family’s garage to show me the impressive collection they have which is where I discovered one of the very first modern roadsters, the Lotus Elan.read more
