Original Painting – Acrylic on Canvas
This beautiful original painting is by famed English racing artist, Simon Ward, and commissioned by Freck’s Auto Art, Inc. The scene memorializes the great Swedish racing champion Ronnie Peterson, driving from pole position to victory in the 1978 Austrian Grand Prix at Osterreichring. Ronnie was teamed with Mario Andretti in 1978 and together they dominated the season in the Lotus 79. Sadly, Ronnie Peterson died later in the same year from injuries sustained at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. One of the most promising Grand Prix race drivers in history is still missed by fans all over the world.
