1960 Honda F1

Honda Formula One cars from the 1960's had to be some of the most beautiful looking race cars ever built. However they were not very successful, having won only 2 grand prix between the years of 1964 and 1968. After the horrible death of Jo Schlesser at the wheel of the RA302, Honda withdrew from F1 at the end of the 1968 season.

This hand pulled letterpress print is made up of the 6 Honda F1 cars that raced in the 1960's. The 1964 RA271, the 1965 RA272, the 1966-67 RA273, the 1967-68 RA300(the nicest of them all), the 1968 RA301 and the 1968 RA302.

Glorious Goodwood


If you’ve ever spent a day at the fabulous Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit and Aerodrome, you’ll probably agree it's the best car racing event in the world. I’ve been twice and nothing compares. Based in West Sussex the Goodwood Motor Circuit originally opened its gates to the public on September 1948 to host Britain's very first post-war motor race meeting. For 18 years Goodwood was host to some very memorable racing and in August 1966 Goodwood closed its gates. Then in 1998 50 years to the day the track first opened, the present Earl of March, hosted the very first Goodwood revival meeting which was a huge success. The circuit was painstakingly restored to look exactly as it did in its heyday, down to the very last detail. So if you ever have the chance to see this amazing event held at the end of each September, do make the effort and go.

Gulf - Porsche 917


"Gulf Oil" and "endurance racing" go hand in hand

and over the last 40 years several different car
manufacturers have carried the Gulf brand, but none
as memorable as the Porsche 917 driven by Derek Bell
or of course the icon Steve McQueen, who starred
in the cult racing car movie "Le Mans". The car used
was the Porsche 917 painted in Gulf racing colours.

DUCATI MOTOR
In 1950, Ducati launched their first motorcycle. It weighed in at 98 pounds and was capable of 40mph. Then in 1954 Ducati started seeing success with the arrival of designer Fabio Taglioni. He created a single-cylinder machine, with a shaft-driven overhead camshaft, that formed the basis for the Ducati range. Taglioni also added Desmodromic valve gear to racing versions which is still used on Ducati motorcycles to this day.
