Hill Climbing At Goodwood:</br> The Interactive 360° Videos

In between Jonathan’s coverage and Mad Mike’s driving, we had the Goodwood Festival of Speed pretty well covered this year. But now, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz, more unique content has emerged that’s too good not to share.

If you cast your mind back to earlier in the year you might remember an interactive 360° video of Nico Rosberg driving his Mercedes AMG F1 W05. Well, the same camera technology was used at Goodwood last month, and the resulting clips – in which you control the viewpoint – are pretty damn cool.

360° cameras were attached to a Sauber-Mercedes C 9 (as pictured above) and an SLS AMG Black Series, and also mounted on the helmets of Anthony Davidson driving a Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 machine and Roland Asch behind the wheel of an absolutely glorious W 125 Silver Arrow. Mercedes-Benz had the honour of designing the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed sculpture in 2014 – one that arched right over the top of Goodwood House – and a time-lapse, 360° video of that amazing piece of automotive art being assembled on site is also included.

If you’re an iPad user a free app where the camera angle is controlled by tilts can be downloaded in the Apple App Store (search ‘Goodwood’). For everyone else, the interactive videos are available to be watched online using the following links:
