Artist: Colin Carter
This print is taken from an edition of 850 by world renowned artist Colin Carter. Dan Gurney’s European racing experience was instrumental in the creation of this new Anglo-American challenger. Built by Lotus in the UK, having modified their model 25 Formula 1 design, it was revolutionary in every way compared to the traditional ‘roadster,’ with the driver’s helmet barley visible, mere inches ahead of its shrieking V8 Ford built engine. It’s performance at its first Indy 500 in 1963 was so impressive, with Jim Clark finishing a strong second and Dan Gurney in seventh, that it influenced the design of American race cars from then on and, within a few years, the front-engined Indy car was as rare as the famous bricks which once covered the Speedway’s surface.Image size 22 1/2″ x 31″.
