This exquisite limited edition print features a number of stunning images of some key people in Formula One™ capturing special moments in F1™ history. 

This print shows: Richard Phillips – CEO of Silverstone Circuit and Stuart Holt - Chairman British Racing Drivers Club writing their individual collaborations, Prince Harry and Alex Molina from Allsport at the Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso celebrating his much deserved win and all three drivers standing together on the podium. 

Mark Dickens made sure to represent the traditional British heritage by featuring the very special Band of the Queen’s Guard on the Silverstone track and the BDRC crest. He also included beautiful architectural images of the neoclassical facade of Stowe School and the charming Norman Church in Silverstone village along with the brand new pit complex at the track now known as The Wave. 

Pieces of local fabric were also cleverly incorporated to create a unique border around the print. 

Finally, the famous Red Arrows acrobatic display team flies past just before the race has been captured in the print.

Quotes

“For me there is no other event like the British Grand Prix, the atmosphere created by the passionate fans coupled with the dazzle of the teams and drivers battling it out on one of the fastest and most famous circuits in the world is memorable.” Richard Phillips - CEO Silverstone Circuits Limited

“The British Racing Drivers Club is the guardian of one of Britain’s sporting treasures- the much loved Silverstone Circuit. We have taken our responsibility very seriously, and continue to maintain the club’s proud and long tradition of investing in the future of ‘’The Home of British Motor Sport.’’ Stuart Holt - Chairman British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC)

“In Formula 1, success teaches you something important about failure; solutions merely offer up new problems. Nothing is ever truly solved-it is merely re-thought, re-engineered and re applied at an even deeper level. That is the nature of pure, relentless competition. It is the endless, unanswerable quest for perfection that keeps us going forward, or the equally fervent desire to avoid disappointment that makes us too fearful to look back? As in life, Formula 1 is an endless journey: The more you discover, the less you feel you know.” Martin Whitmarsh - Team Principal McLaren

 “There’s always something special about racing at Silverstone. We compete in front of our home crowd and the atmosphere during the whole weekend is totally different to any other race. The Silverstone circuit layout is always very popular with the drivers as it is a real challenge for them. It’s a track that demands a car’s high-speed aerodynamic capability and its opening section has always been a crowd pleaser as it has been one of the fastest opening parts of any track  On the calendar for 2011, the new arena section, race control building, hospitality and new spectator zones will bring Silverstone bang up to date. The whole race weekend is loved in a very special way and this is one Grand Prix I always look forward to” John Booth - Team Principal Virgin/Marussia Racing
