Details Specification

"Collection of Limited Edition Tim Layzell Fine Art Prints" by Tim Layzell. Includes the following: 'True Film Stars' By Tim Layzell The Porsche 917 of Jo Siffert and Brian Redman streaks down the Mulsanne straight pursued by the sister car of Pedro Rodriguez/ Leo Kinnunen and 2 of the rival Ferrari 512s of Vaccarella/Giunti and Merzario/Reggazoni at Le Mans in 1970. This was a serious effort by both manufacturers with no fewer than 7 of the flat-12 917s pitted against an even more staggering 11 Ferrari 512s (a mixture of works and privateer cars). In a race of attrition, only 7 of the 51 starters were classified, with the Porsche-Salzburg 917 of Richard Attwood and veteran Hans Herrmann taking Porsche's maiden victory at La Sarthe. However, as the chosen mount for Steve McQueen's Michael Delaney character in the film Le Mans, it is the pale blue and orange JWA-Gulf entered cars which have achieve immortality. Limited Edition, one of just 450 hand signed and numbered by the artist Tim Layzell and Giclee Printed on very High quality 308 gsm art paper. Custom mounted in a high quality brushed aluminium frame complete with COA.75cm x 90cm 5kg 'Long Day Ahead' By Tim Layzell The Mille Miglia was a race in which, even over a very long course, local knowledge counted. In 1955, Stirling Moss was the 3rd - and last - non-Italian to win the 1,000 mile epic in its 30 year history. Stirling was assisted in his efforts by the speed and stamina of the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR and the cool head of his navigator, bearded journalist Denis Jenkinson who had plotted the natural hazards of 1,000 miles of Italian roads onto a roll of paper in a waterproof case, which he communicated to Moss via a series of hand signals. The British pair did not have it all their own way and in the early stages, as shown here, they were harried by the Ferrari 121LM of Eugenio Castellotti as the race charged from town to town through the Italian landscape. Castellotti's matinee idol looks belied a steely determination and skill behind the wheel which made him the darling of the Italian fans. Although very fast, his Ferrari ate its rear tyres at an alarming rate, allowing Moss to ease clear and win at record speed. A year later, Mercedes having retired from motor racing, Moss and Jenkinson crashed out in their Maserati while Castellotti won a very wet race. Limited Edition, one of just 250 hand signed and numbered by artist Tim Layzell and Giclee Printed on very High quality 308 gsm art paper. Custom mounted in high quality brushed aluminium frame complete with COA.90cm x 75cm 5kg 'Narrow Victory' by Tim Layzell The premise of GT racing was that manufacturers could race cars based - however loosely - on cars which customers could drive on the road. The Ferrari GTO and the Aston Martin Project Cars were perhaps the ultimate expressions of this - based on the 250GT series and DB4GT respectively. For the TT at Goodwood in 1963, the Astons of Bruce McLaren and Innes Ireland were handicapped by having to run on narrow 5 ½" wheel rims. Although Ireland put in a banzai qualifying lap to take pole, Graham Hill won the race from Mike Parkes' similar car while Ireland finished 7th after a number of lurid spins. Here, Hill leads Ireland and Parkes out of the chicane in the early stages of the race. Limited Edition, one of just 450 hand-signed and numbered by the artist Tim Layzell and Giclee Printed on very high quality 308 gsm art paper.
