Epic Win On An Epic Track

Africa is the only major continent not featured on the Formula 1 calendar, but that was not always the case. In fact, as far back as 1925, Italian Tripolitania, now known as Libya, hosted motor races, thanks mainly to it being a colony of car-mad Italy. The Tripoli Grand Prix ran up to 1940 and therefore never counted for the World Championship which was inaugurated a decade later. But factory teams from Europe with famous names such as Alfa Romeo, Mercedes, Auto Union, Bugatti and Maserati all engraved their name on the Tripoli winner’s trophy.

On 12 May 1935, all the top drivers of the time lined up on the grid at the Mellaha seaside circuit and the start is captured with a wonderfully evocative view from the grandstand in this Automobilist Fine Art. Mercedes was the dominant team and Rudi Caraciolla won the race, recalling the finish in his autobiography: “Then Neubauer (Mercedes team boss) rushes up, and the mechanics, my faithful Walz among them. “The big man” is quite beside himself. He pulls me from the car, kisses me in both cheeks; two mechanics hoist me on their shoulders. They carry me that way to the pits. I shake many hands. I am still quite numb. Suddenly it comes over me - I have won, thank the Lord, I have won! It is an indescribable feeling which cannot be compared to anything else.”

High quality printing and paper for a fantastic shots of these classics. Paper has a slight sepia tone to it v. pure white. Not a negative in the least, just an observation. Arrived MUCH earlier than expected

Magic behind our work

RESEARCH AND CONCEPT

Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.
Epic Win On An Epic Track research and concept phase

3D MODELLING AND 3D SCANNING

Once the concept is established, a 3D model is created using computer-generated imagery. Studying every piece of reference material available, Automobilists’ artists, then, digitally rebuild the vehicle from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer with painstaking detail – even down to the last coat of paint.

PHOTOSHOOT

With pre-production complete, it’s time to go on-location and start shooting photographs. This stage can last for several days and involves crews of up to 70 people, depending on the concept. The highest grade of professional equipment is used to ensure the highest quality and resolution images, and extensively detailed sets are also built when required.
