Vintage 1961 Photo of Wolfgang Berghe von Trips at the GP Great Britain at Aintree

This is a vintage 1961 photo of Count Wolfgang Berghe von Trips (1928 - 1961) in the pits of Aintree on July 13, 1961 during a practice session for the Grand Prix of Britain 2 days later.

This was a mere 2 months before his untimely demise at Monza race track!

The photo is in excellent condition (although not super sharp, it could be described as "somewhat soft-focus") and measures some 4.75 x 6.25 inches.

The photographer wrote "13-7-1961 W. von Trips Aintree" on the bottom border (visible in the scan). You can leave it there "as is", trim the borders off the photo or have it disappear under a matting when you have it framed.

Wolfgang would drive a Ferrari 156 Sharknose in this Grand Prix and although he only qualified in 4th position, he would go on to win the race.

A GREAT vintage and VERY late photo of von Trips.

Only 1 available of course.

Vintage Original 1963 Monaco Grand Prix Poster Counter Top

Vintage Original 1963 Monaco Grand Prix Poster Counter Top

Vintage Original 1963 Monaco Grand Prix Counter-Top Poster.

Here we have a VERY rare Monaco Grand Prix poster...

These posters could be seen hanging throughout the principality of Monaco prior to the race in 1963 but this one is a little more special...

This particular one is executed as a counter-top version and it is the very first one in this execution that we ever managed to lay our hands on.

The artwork is by French artist Michel Beligond and shows a number of F1 cars racing along the harbor of Monte-Carlo.

The race was won by Graham Hill on BRM, followed by his team mate Ritchie Ginther with Bruce McLaren on Cooper-Climax completing the podium.

Ferrari entered a Ferrari 156 Sharknose for both John Surtees and Willy Mairesse. John brought his home in 4th place, after having set fastest lap in the race, while Willy dropped out of the race in lap 37 due to gearbox problems.

As visible in the pictures, this unusual table top Monaco "poster" has been maltreated severely in its past so it is in far from mint condition but it simply oozes patina... For the exact condition, please check the photographs.

The dimensions are some 59 x 40 cm or 23.5 x 16 inches.

We have, of course, only 1 available.
