Automotive artist Andrew Hill’s print, strictly limited to 10, has Tazio Nuvolari piloting the Alfa Romeo to a great victory at the 1936 Coppa Ciano.
The Coppa Ciano was held in Livorno for the first time in ’36 and Nuvolari sat in the middle of the front row in between the Auto Unions of Varzi and Rosemeyer. At the start the two German machines took the lead with the third car of Stuck following through; Nuvolari suffered a broken rear axle and returned to the pits in a rage. The tiny Italian tore through the Scuderia Ferrari pits demanding a replacement car, threatening to leave the team if not given one. After three laps Carlo Pintacuda was called in and Nuvolari roared out of the pits in his team-mate’s less powerful car to begin one of his greatest charges. As drivers swapped and cars failed Nuvolari pushed his Alfa as far as it could go, first unlapping himself, then moving into second place behind arch-rival Varzi. When Varzi’s brakes started to wilt Nuvolari took the lead and kept on pushing. By the end it was a Ferrari-Alfa 1-2-3 with Stuck the only Auto Union driver left.
