1993 was one of the most exciting years in the PPG Indy Car World Series.  All the top names in racing were involved in the series at that time, like Rahal, Fittipaldi, Luyendyk, and Sullivan.
Carl Haas .. seen here sporting his famous cigar .. brought the reigning 1992 Formula One World Champion Nigel Mansell to Indy Car to join his driver Mario Andretti, the former 1978 Formula One Champion.
A fantastic year for Newman/Haas Racing with Nigel Mansell securing the 1993 PPG Indy Car World Series Championship for team owners Carl Haas and Paul Newman, remarkably, one race before the end of the season.
 

This unique sculpture captures these three "greats" during their 1993 season, all Champions in their own right, and all legends in the world of motorsports.


Mario looks on, as Carl and Nigel share a competitive but relaxed moment, with one of Carl's favorite pastimes ...the game of backgammon.

Mario Andretti  a true legend in the world of motorsports, has become probably the most well known name in racing.  He was the 1978 Formula One World Champion, driving the John Player's Special Lotus Ford. 
The sculpture here shows him in the 1993 PPG Indy Car World Series, just one year before he retired as a full time driver. 
Being  a personal friend of Paul Newman, Mario was an obvious choice for the team driver, when Carl Haas and Paul Newman formed Newman/Haas Racing in the early 80's.  Mario continued to be an active driver for the team until 1994
Specifications:  Figure approx. 15.3/4" tall - 6.1/4" dia. base.
