Hunting for Victory

From: $234.99

Fuji Speedway, Japan – October 24, 1976

40 years ago, one of the most talented and charismatic Formula One drivers of all time won the World Championship at Fuji in Japan. As the climax to one of the most controversial seasons on record, the race had it all: excitement, drama, heavy rain and, of course, the crowning of a new Champion.

James Hunt had already experienced many ups and downs that year, but it was when disqualified points from the Spanish Grand Prix were reinstated that he really began to believe he could do it. At the decider in Fuji, Mario Andretti took pole position; Hunt was second on the grid; and long-term friend and rival, Niki Lauda, started third. With heavy fog and running water on parts of the track, some drivers debated whether the race should even go ahead at all – and Hunt was one of them. But despite the risks, the race went ahead and Hunt took the lead from the start.

It looked like an easy win, but as the track began to dry, everything changed. Hunt lost several places. Following a puncture, a delayed pit stop and confused team messages, Hunt didn’t even know his race position – or the fact he’d slipped out of a title-winning spot. He just knew he had to overtake as many cars as he could, passing anyone in his way. In the final few laps of the race, Hunt sensationally fought his way into third position – and to his surprise, won enough points to secure the title.

Behind the Scenes

Every image Automobilist creates is based on a real-life historical event, so to ensure accuracy, long hours of research are spent to piece together every little detail.Once the concept is established, they get to work creating a 3D model using CGI.

Studying every piece of reference material available, Automobilist’s artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint.

Capturing Extraordinary Detail

In addition to their CGI modeling, Automobilist shoots real-life settings and actors to enhance the artwork’s authenticity. This can involve large crews of up to 80 people, using period costumes and movie-quality props for the most impressive results.

Framing the Artwork

To make the most of Unique & Limited Edition pieces, it’s important to frame them perfectly. That’s why Automobilist offers a framing service using the highest quality materials.

Feel Assured with a Seal of Approval

Each piece of art comes with a certificate of authentication, indicating that you have purchased an original work. In addition, each has a silver plaque detailing its unique number. And to really guarantee genuineness, all images are hand-signed by the man who initiated turning historical moments into works of art – Jan Rambousek.

Highest Standards on the Market

Automobilist only uses the very best Epson fine art printers, and premium Hahnmühle paper due to its fine texture, which guarantees long lasting color and saturation.
