The Honda Civic WTCC will be on display inside the F1 Paddock at the Goodwood estate near Chichester, England. Car enthusiasts will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite livery via social media and the website. The winning design will be awarded at the Festival of Speed’s closing ceremony.
The Jean Graton Foundation showcases Jean Graton’s work to a new audience in a larger scale in a series of exhibitions. Dominique Graton, the Art Director at the Foundation said “Jean Graton’s work is unique in two ways: how he recreates speed in still drawings, and how his fictional stories mixed with reality throughout his work. The concept idea of the Honda Art Car Jean Graton is to summarise these two principles by wrapping an actual racing car into the artwork, and putting it in motion.”
William De Braekeleer, Autosport Manager Honda Motor Europe Ltd, commented: “We’re delighted to have partnered with the Jean Graton Foundation to create a truly unique design for the WTCC Art Car Contest at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Jean Graton’s Vaillante brand and Honda share many similarities, not least that racing is in our DNA”
