McKlein Motorsport Classics: 1000 km Monza 1969

In this photo, taken just after the start of the 1969 1000 km race at Monza, the top cars have disappeared and gone, while the rest of the pack fight for their positions. Amongst them are Chris Craft/Eric Liddell in a Lola T70 Mk3 and the two factory Alpine A220s driven by Patrick Depailler/Jean-Pierre Jabouille and André de Cortanze/Jean Vinatier. Behind them, the rest of the grid follow and sort themselves out in similar fashion.

Motorsport Classic 2024 Calendar

The McKlein Motorsport Classic calendar evokes the great years of motor racing and rallying with names like Monza and Monaco, Spa-Francorchamps and the Safari Rally and those of drivers like John Surtees, Niki Lauda, Walter Röhrl, Bruce McLaren and Phil Hill. Every month you can embellish your wall with photographs from the 1950s to 1970s featuring scenes and portraits from the McKlein database. You can choose one of two photographs each month, or swap them during the month. Watch Hans-Joachim Stuck operating as a Formula One lawnmower on the Österreichring, or Shelby Cobras in Sicily, the rapid Mercedes car transporter, the “Blue Wonder”, as well as marvelling at the 1959 helmet fashion at the Avus GP in Berlin.

This unique wall decoration shows sports cars and formula racers as well as legendary rally cars and touring cars, in short, practically the whole range of motorsport from the middle of the Twentieth Century. As always, there is a mini-story about each picture, and there are a total of twenty-five photographs in an attractive format of sixty-seven by forty-eight centimetres.
