To date, racing legends David Coulthard, Karl Wendlinger and Bernd Schneider have been among those to take turns in the “Gullwing” cockpit. The IWC Racing Team has appeared several times at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting, competing in various races on the renowned Goodwood Motor Circuit. In 2019, David Coulthard took first place in the Tony Gaze Trophy race at the event. The team also participated in the 2019 Arosa ClassicCar, a famous mountain race set in the breath-taking landscape of the Swiss Alps. A total of 162 drivers participated in the event, with 27,000 spectators watching the action.
In 2020, the IWC Racing Team moved into its new home at the all-new flagship boutique on the ‘home straight’ of Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse. The new boutique is furnished in the style of ‘IWC Racing Works’. Using a rich blend of motorsport memorabilia, engineering artefacts and unique timepieces, it tells the story of the long-standing connection between IWC and the world of motorsport. The boutique’s centrepiece is the IWC Racing “Gullwing”.
In October 2021, the IWC Racing team made its return to the Goodwood Members’ Meeting. In her first appearance for the team, Austrian racing driver Laura Kraihamer took part in the Stirling Moss Trophy. IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr and other members of the IWC family also connected virtually with guests at IWC’s manufacturing center in Schaffhausen, turning the 78th Goodwood Members’ Meeting into a hybrid event.
