Original 1982 Swiss GP Race Poster.
Shows an artist's impression of Eddie Cheever's Ligier Gitanes JS19 Matra.
The race was won by Keke Rosberg in his # 6 Williams FW08 ahead of Alain Prost in his # 15 Renault RE30B and Niki Lauda in his # 8 McLaren MP4-1B.
Near mint condition but has been folded vertically (original fold!).
The Swiss Grand Prix was only held from 1950 - 1954 at the Bremgarten racetrack and following the huge disaster at Le Mans in June 1955, the authorities in Switzerland banned ALL racing on closed circuits!
The Swiss Grand Prix was revived for 1982 for which this is the official poster and it was held at the Dijon-Prenois racetrack in France.
Unfortunately, it would remain with this one-time revival...
Patrick Tambay was the only Ferrari driver who was entered for this race (# 27 Ferrari 126 C2) but did not start the race due to a pinched nerve in his neck which made him unable to race.
It measures some 23 x 16 inches or 60 x 37.5 cm.
Only 1 available.
This poster will be shipped, rolled, in a sturdy tube.
