A large 38" x 28" oil painting commissioned by a long term admirer of this great but under-rated driver. This image amply displays what can be achieved in paint other than car portraits and track action.
Centrepiece is the RAC Tourist Trophy won by Brooks and Moss at Goodwood in 1958 with Brooks' helmet and goggles beside it. The background framed painting depicts the same race while below it is a photograph of his first Grand Prix victory at Syracuse in a Connaught. The red and white garland is that worn on the winner's rostrum at the German GP after his victory in a Vanwall 1958 with my own Leica camera which I frequently used in the 1950s at motor races to photograph his and other drivers' action. On the left is a period enamelled garage sign giving a nod to his career after he retired from racing, and the annual Automobile Year books cover the years of his active racing together with a bible as he was a devout catholic.
