Duel in the Desert

0

The circus now heads for the season finale in Abu Dhabi for the title decider after a race full of controversy and incident in Jeddah. Whether you are rooting for Max or Lewis on Sunday, we should be grateful that this is the first time since 1974 that the leaders are tied on points going into the last race.


In 1974, Emerson Fittipaldi triumphed. We currently have a genuine race used visor from the popular Brazilian as used at the 1980 British Grand Prix.


The current season reminds me very much of the epic Prost and Senna battles that defined an era for many. We are pleased to offer a large superb signed and framed black and white professional photographic print of ‘Le Professor’ taken and signed during his swansong season in 1993 and one of Ayrton’s personally dedicated Christmas cards to a McLaren team member from the end of 1992. 


John Surtees remains the only man to win titles on two and four wheels and secured his championship against Graham hill and Jim Clark at the final race of 1964. We are pleased to offer a very attractive enamelled metal ‘Heuer’ plaque hand signed by John in our historics section.


From our exclusive original art collaboration with Ben Payne we offer his original hand painted artworks “Brazilian Eyes” and “Red Mist” depicting Senna and Schumacher respectively. Whilst we never saw these two legends battle head to head for a championship title, these fine artworks are a fitting tribute.


Finally, representing this year’s showdown, for the Max Verstappen fan we have a unique and exclusive Monaco ACM members only cap, hand signed by Max in 2019 and for the Lewis fan, a genuine Carbon champagne bottle signed by Lewis in silver sharpie. 


Let battle recommence and may the best man win!


Tim
