Gurney Eagle Weslake

Twelve cylinders of screaming power topped by what might be the most beautiful set of exhaust headers ever made. A highly successful motor racing driver in many disciplines, Dan Gurney had been driving in Formula One since the late 1950s. While driving for the Brabham works team, he joined with a group of prominent motor racing figures and financial backers in the United States, including Carroll Shelby, to found All American Racers. This effort was largely backed by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, in an effort to challenge Firestone’s longtime dominance of American open-wheel racing. Inspired by the performance of Jack Brabham and Bruce McLaren’s own teams, AAR decided to enter Grand Prix racing.

The 1967 season proved to be intensely frustrating for all concerned. Although Gurney and sometime teammate Bruce McLaren managed to qualify the Eagle-Weslake cars in the front two rows of the grid on no fewer than eleven occasions from the season’s eleven Grands Prix, only two cars finished a race. That both of these finishes were in podium positions highlights the raw speed of the Eagle Mk1. AAR’s first major race win came in the 1967 Race of Champions at Brands Hatch, with Gurney taking the aluminium-chassis 102 to victory in this prestigious non-Championship season opener. 104 was introduced at Zandvoort, the Netherlands, early in 1967; the lightest and fastest of the Eagle Mk1 vehicles, it was with this car that Gurney scored the team’s only Championship victory: the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix held at Spa-Francorchamps.

My new 1967 Formula One print series features the winning cars and includes (all availability dates are subject to change):

Each illustration will feature a background that includes a graphic adapted from the event poster for the race the car won as well as the respective track profile. Prints may also be purchased without a background. Illustrations are printed on acid-free,  museum quality paper using naturally pigmented inks for exquisite detail clarity and color reproduction. Prints with backgrounds measure 10″ x 24″ or 15″ x 36″ and prints without backgrounds measure 8″ x 24″ and 12″ x 36″ with prices from $185 — $235.

Press runs on the Formula One series prints will be extremely limited—only 25 of each car will be pressed. Because of the extremely limited availability, for the first time, I will be offering  a deposit feature on advanced sales that will allow you to reserve a print, or prints, of your choosing. Deposit amount per/print is $75 with balance(s) on advance sales prints due upon shipment.
