Special illustrated collector’s edition print celebrates 50th anniversary of first Falcon win at Bathurst …
STORY: AARON NOONAN
THIS year there are a range of special anniversaries in relation to Bathurst history with one notable one being that this year is the 50th anniversary of the first Falcon win in the Mount Panorama endurance classic.
Back in 1967 it was Harry Firth and Fred Gibson that claimed victory in their #52D Ford Motor Company-entered Falcon XR GT, also becoming the first drivers to win the Bathurst enduro aboard a V8-powered car.
To celebrate this special occasion and anniversary, V8 Sleuth’s acclaimed Perth artist Tristan Groves has produced this fantastic piece depicting the two Hall of Fame drivers and their Falcon race winning car.
This collector’s edition illustrated print is being produced in a verylimited run and has been open for pre-order this week – click here to pre-order.
All prints will be hand-signed by Fred Gibson and will be individually numbered.
Prints are on high quality 250gsm paper stock with a matte finish, measuring 84cm x 59cm.
Pre-orders close at 5pm AEST on Friday August 25, 2017 with expected delivery in late September/early October.
