1956d LANCIA FERRARI D50 & MASERATI, NURBURGRING, signed CARROLL SHELBY
In a race that decided the World Championship, Juan Manuel Fangio led from start to finish in the Lancia Ferrari D50, appropriately sporting 'No 1'. Stirling Moss fought hard to keep in touch, driving the Maserati 250F, taking second place in the race and in the drivers championship. This most attractive envelope portrays the two red Italian cars against the green country section of the Nurburgring, complimented by the Fangio D50 stamp label and cachet.
The extra special has been signed by CARROLL SHELBY, who also drove the Maserati 250F in Formula 1. His performance in the American Sports Car Championship was momentous, winning 27 races in one season (19 consecutive) but it will be the famous Shelby name, allied to the Cobra and the Mustang that was probably what made him a household name. Furthermore the fund raising venture for Papworth Hospital is based on their heart transplant for Carroll Shelby that saved his life.
