'Give Me Goodwood' By Tim Layzell
Lot No.: 308
Sold for (£): 440
"Give me Goodwood on a summer's day and you can forget the rest of the world." So said the late, great Roy Salvadori and it is difficult to imagine a more perfect setting for the motorsport enthusiast than 24th August 1963, sitting on the bank between Fordwater and St Mary's as the field - peppered with Grand Prix stars - blasts through ‘no name' corner on the first lap of that year's Tourist Trophy race. Here, Graham Hill's Maranello Concessionaires Ferrari 250 GTO leads a gaggle of cars including Salvadori in Tommy Atkins' Jaguar E-Type Lightweight (86 PJ); Jack Sears in another Lightweight E-Type (4 WPD); Mike Parkes in John Coombs' Ferrari GTO, the Aston Martin Project Cars of Bruce McLaren(1) and Innes Ireland (2) and the ill-fated Prince Zourab Tchkotoua Ferrari GTO driven by Tommy Hitchcock. While Hitchcock rolled his GTO into retirement at Madgwick later in the race, Hill went on to win from Parkes, Salvadori and Sears. Limited Edition, one of just 450 hand-signed and numbered by the artist Tim Layzell and Giclee Printed on very high quality 308 gsm art paper. Custom mounted in a high quality brushed aluminium frame complete with COA.
