"Alan Fearnley, British painter, is known for his superb paintings of motor racing and Formula One around the world.

Over the past 30 or so years Alan had built up a wealth of subject matter, starting with landscapes and moving later into his well known transport and motor racing paintings, the work that started to flow reflected not only his special skills, but also his love and passion for both motoring and motor sport."

Peter Helck is consider to be one of the greatest automotive illustrators to have ever have graced this earth.

"Peter Helck was born in New York City in 1893. By the time of his death in 1988 he had produced more than 600 sketches, drawings and paintings.

A founding member of the Automotive Fine Arts Society, he was dubbed “the dean of American automotive illustrators of the 20th century.” The society’s Peter Helck Award is their highest honor, given annually at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to the artist whose work represents the pinnacle of automotive fine art.

Helck developed an early interest in automobiles and became an avid fan of motorsport. As a young boy he got rides with race car driver Al Poole testing the latest cars from Simplex. The first race he attended was the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup on Long Island. In 1912 he studied art at the Art Students League in Manhattan (befriending fellow student Norman Rockwell), and spent many a lunchtime gazing at cars in nearby showrooms."

"From its origins with the French Foreign Legion. Dubonnet Rouge Aperitif Wine has been a staple on the cocktail landscape since its introduction in 1846. Created by Parisian chemist / wine merchant Joseph Dubonnet as a means to make quinine more palatable for the soldiers battling malaria in North Africa. Dubonnet's mix of fortified wine, a proprietary blend of herbs, spices and peels, and the medicinal quinine is a recipe that has earned it legendary status in the world of sophisticated drinks. By the turn of the 20th century, Dubonnet was producing more than three million bottles a year and was exported throughout the world. His son Andre Dubonnet would help spend the family fortune by campaigning a Hispano-Suiza in 1921. A wealthy sportsman with a commercially alcoholic background, Andre Dubonnet, won a sports-car race at Boulogne: the Coupe Boillot. He repeated the success 2 years later with a new 8-liter engine. Also in 1924, Dubonnet ran a Hispano-Suiza 46CV in the famous Targa Florio road race in Sicily. It was fitted with an exotic body of riveted tulip-wood planking he nevertheless finished in sixth position."

"Christie and Lancia Collide" by Peter Helck (http://www.peterhelck.com/) "Lancia was impatient to get back on course after replacing a tire on lap eight when leading by over 30 miles. He misjudged the speed of the approaching racer Walter Christie. He pulled onto the road in front of the American car, which hit him from behind. Lancia’s two rear wheels took 40 minutes to repair."
