Goodwood Salutes Cooper Cars – Limited Edition Poster of just 100
from £49.99 Size Guide
Produced in a limited edition of just 100. Goodwood looked glorious in the early autumn, late afternoon sunshine in September 2019. And at the closing stages of the classic revival motoring weekend the organisers arranged a very special event. It was a tribute to the huge contribution that Cooper Cars have made to motor sport over seventy years, and took the form of a cavalcade of thoroughbreds.
Capturing that magical moment is what this Limited Edition Poster does so evocatively. Here are some of the machines that dominated sports car racing, rallying and Formula 1. The culmination being the 1959 season that saw the Cooper Climax T51 driven by Jack Brabham win the manufacturers' and drivers' F1 championships. The first mid-engined F1 car (the innovative Cooper Climax) was constructed in a configuration that has remained essentially unchanged to the present day. The dominance of the Mini-Coopers with numerous rally successes including the Monte Carlo wins in 1964, 65 & 67 (not counting 1,2,3,4th in 1966). In 1966 they were all disqualified because they used non-dipping single filament quartz iodine bulbs in their headlamps...the new winner was a Citroën ID!
Gary Bigwood is a self-confessed classic car/bike enthusiast. He's worked in advertising and graphic design for many years, as well as creating the iconic designs featured in The TT Store and was prolific drawing over 30 classic cars under #Bigs66 (during Covid-19 Lockdown) which can be viewed at worldwide site Redbubble. The style looks almost photographic (from a distance) but is made up of a series of random shapes – which gives a distinctive style.
