'I still feel for our Alfa the adolescent tenderness of first love, the immaculate affection for the mamma.' So wrote one Enzo Ferrari after racing giant Alfa Romeo first fell to his upstart Scuderia Ferrari in the Grand Prix at Silverstone, England, July 14, 1951. Ferrari had been a towering force within the Alfa organization before the Second World War, and obviously still held the Milanese firm in high regard. Artist Michael Turner beautifully illustrates a moment in the pivotal race when Froilan Gonzales, piloting a Ferrari 375 F1 chases down world champion Juan Manuel Fangio in his Alfa Romeo Tipo 159. The scenes implied action is marvelous, with the hurtling racers barely missing marker barrels at a corner's apex. A great image for a Formula One fan, or Ferrari and Alfa Romeo aficionado. Framed in gloss red Neilsen-type frame, glazed with plexiglass (which should be replaced). Dimensions: 22 x 17.
