We've featured the Goodwood Festival of Speed on several occasions in eurotuner Magazine, the most recent being our February 2008 issue.

As this year's event kicks off in Goodwood, England, Land Rover unveiled its impressive central display for the event.Positioned in front of the historic Goodwood House, the eye-catching 40ft raw steel rock structure - featuring five Land Rover vehicles (one of each nameplate) and designed in celebration of the company's 60th anniversary - was unveiled last night by Lord March (owner of the Goodwood House and the surrounding estate) at the official opening of this year's event.

"Land Rover's global success and enviable reputation has been built over the last 60 years on the manufacture of robust and dependable vehicles that can tackle any driving condition in any terrain - and this was the inspiration for the spectacular Central Feature Sculpture. For me, this is one of the most awe-inspiring and memorable displays we've ever had at the Festival. It's arguably our most artistic too, with its naturally rusted steel structure. It is certainly magnificent," commented Lord March.

Land Rover, this year's featured marque, will celebrate its 60th anniversary at the Festival with a strong presence showcasing its past, present and future. The first ever pre-production Land Rover from 1948, affectionately known as HUE, will be on display alongside the current product line-up, the Defender SVX Limited Edition - launched to mark the milestone anniversary - and the acclaimed LRX concept cross-coupe - a bold evolution of Land Rover design that signals the brand's future direction under new ownership.
