MotorsportMemorabilia 1953 Grand Prix commemorative cover
The fourth cover in the series depicts Alberto Ascari winning the Swiss Grand Prix at Bremgarten, on the 23 August 1953, driving the invincible Ferrari 500; his team mate, Giuseppe Farina, is shown in second place. Mike Hawthorn (not shown) also in a Ferrari, came third, giving the Company a clean sweep. Alfa Romeo all 3 places on the podium. All 3 drivers have since died but we have been fortunate to obtain the signature of 3 drivers who raced in the early 50s.
