The iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed trophy is handed out each year at the event to the winner of the hill climb shootout. In 2017, Nick Ervinck was chosen by the event’s initiator and host, Lord March, to custom-design the trophy. Unveiled at the event, the 2017 winner did not simply receive a trophy, but a piece of art.
3D printed in a clear transparent material infused with vibrant colors, the trophy is heavily inspired by the Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS) motorsport-racing tradition. Ervinck was influenced by the movement, speed and pleasure of racing, as well as the new photographic technologies, which allow us to capture moments in time.
Hoping to represent Goodwood’s legacy of innovation and future technological advancements, the trophy embodies the characteristics of motorsport itself. With its glossy finish, rectilinear and yet organic shapes, achieved on the Stratasys J750, the design conveys a certain elegance and is a fitting tribute to this important event.
