1967 Ferrari 312 F1 Memorabilia
This is an extremely scarce Item.
This is an ORIGINAL Death Notice card of Lorenzo Bandini.
Only a few selected friends of the family received this card in 1967.
Lorenzo was Enzo Ferrari's "Golden Boy" in the 1960's and is even rumored to be the cause of the break-up between Ferrari and John Surtees.
Lorenzo died after having suffered severe burns to his body during his horrible crash in the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix at the age of 31. Lorenzo drove a Ferrari 312 when he lost control over the car in the chicane after which the car caught fire. Lorenzo died three days later in hospital.
It measures approximately 20.5 x 10.5 cm or 8.5 x 4 inches and opens up to 20.5 x 21 cm or 8.5 x 8 inches.

Original 1967 Lorenzo Bandini Death Notice Obituary Card
Vintage 1967 color slide of Lorenzo Bandini in his very last lap at the Monaco Grand Prix on May 7, 1967.
In this picture we see Lorenzo heading towards the Portier turn in lap 87 of the Grand Prix.
An Italian team leader at Ferrari, Bandini was under considerable pressure to perform. At Monaco in 1967 he was lying second late in the race. On lap 82 of the scheduled 100, probably due to fatigue, Bandini misjudged his entry to the harbour front chicane. The Ferrari clipped some straw bales and overturned, on fire and with Bandini trapped inside.
The raging inferno made rescue difficult, a situation not helped by a TV helicopter fanning the flames from above. Eventually, Bandini was removed and taken to the Princess Grace Hospital, terribly burned. He held onto life for three days before eventually succumbing. In a cruel postscript, Bandini’s wife, expecting the couple’s first child, suffered a miscarriage. An estimated 100,000 people attended Bandini's funeral.
Since this is the original slide, it comes including the copyright so the buyer is free to reproduce it, also for commercial purposes!
