1952 HUMZA FERRARI Indianapolis F1 Cover 1
MotorsportMemorabilia 1952 Grand Prix commemorative cover

From 1950 to 1960, the Indianapolis 500 race was included for points within the Formula 1 World Championship; to commemorate the race we have included it in our series as the 1952 cover. We wanted to include Alberto Ascari as he was the World Champion that year, whilst providing a variation from the all conquering Ferrari 500 that won 14 races in 1952/53. Skilfully, Ross Wardle has depicted Troy Ruttman in his Offenhauser engined Kuzma, passing Alberto Ascari's modified Ferrari 375, prior to the Italian's retirement after 40 laps. Ruttman won the race, 4 mins clear of any opposition. Ascari won the last 6 races of the season in the Ferrari 500 to take his first World Championship title.
