David Gandy attends the 2013 Goodwood Revival

David Gandy attended the Earls Court Motor Show yesterday, as a part of the 2013 Goodwood Revival.

For three days each September, The Revival relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit, which ranked alongside Silverstone as Britain’s leading racing venue throughout its active years between 1948 and 1966. This historic circuit stages the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event for the kind of cars and motorcycles that would have competed at Goodwood.



The famous British model David Gandy hosted the premier of his new short film in collaboration with Jaguar UK, Escapism, which will be released very soon, on the Jaguar stand in Earls Court. This film features David driving some of the most famous sports cars ever produced, and celebrates the latest addition to Jaguar’s iconic sporting bloodline, the new F-TYPE convertible. The new Jaguar F-TYPE was on display on the stand contrasting with two classic E-type sports cars.  


 


In the film Gandy gives us insight into his life as he invites us on a road trip that starts at dusk as he escapes ‘the craziness of London’.  It features the style icon driving his favourite British heritage cars from the C-Type, E-Type and XKSS, through to the very latest F-TYPE.

 



Gandy discusses his passion for driving; “that feeling of freedom, just you and the car” and how driving is his ‘meditation’. Throughout, he wears the same Persol sunglasses as one of his icons, Steve McQueen, who famously owned a Jaguar XKSS that he affectionately called the “Green Rat’.
