My Obsession: The Duncan Pittaway story | Goodwood Masters

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 11 months ago

Duncan Pittaway is a Goodwood legend, but not many know that there is far more to his arsenal than the incredible Fiat S76 Beast of Turin. In fact Duncan's car collection is as large as it is varied, ranging from Bugattis to Cheetahs, from Invacars to pre-war Monarch's.

But what is the story behind the cars? Who is the man who owns all these incredible machines and what is it that makes him tick? In the second of our Goodwood Masters films presented by Motul, looking at the people and firms behind some of the classic car industry's greatest machines, we visited Duncan to explore his background, the reason behind his eclectic collection and what makes him tick.

I love how much credit he gives to Tucker. These two are curators, caretakers, spokesmen, ambassadors for these cars.

What a fantastic documentary about Duncan and his passion for getting his hands dirty. I’ve met Duncan many times at Goodwood meetings and he always has a smile on his face, and oil on his hands, and is always happy to chat about his cars and passion.
He’s doing what he enjoys and is very fortunate to be in a position to do so.
This has to be one of the best YouTube videos I’ve watched for a long time. I absolutely loved it. We need more documentaries into these interesting engineers and car collectors lives and workshops. Simply superb viewing.
Thanks to Duncan and his team for making such an enjoyable video. Keep up the fantastic work 👍

Such a lovely guy! I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Festival of Speed this year; I asked why he hadn't brought his TVR S with him and he laughed.
