We are pleased to present this iconic vintage motor racing image from the 1965 RAC British Grand Prix at Silverstone. This photographic print is printed on archival photographic paper and is suitable for in-home, office, museum or gallery display. This is an image that is filled with nostalgia of an era where drivers were friends on and off the circuit and socializing between teams was part of the fabric of the sport. The dramatic 80-lap race was won by Lotus driver Jim Clark, but interestingly, the top five positions were occupied by British drivers. Many credit that race and the 1965 season as the moment that F1 had been reborn in Great Britain. Until then the Italians and the Germans had dominated the sport for a long time. Clark, seen in this beautiful image, bottom right, in the #5 car, went on to take a second title that season, winning six of the first seven races including the German Grand prix held at the Nürburgring on August 1. Clark missed the Monaco Grand Prix that year because he was in the United States winning the Indy 500. He remains the only driver to have won at the F1 championship and the Indy 500 in the same season.
