piece in 1/10th scale, complete with driver, and a personally
hand signed plaque, by the 1961 Formula One World Drivers' Champion Phil Hill,
is presented each year, to the winner of this very prestigious award, by the
"Road Racing Drivers Club"
Bobby Rahal, president of the
Racing Drivers Club, presented the first Dino 156 sculpture at the
club's award dinner in Daytona, just before the 24 hour race.
We're very proud of the fact that the club chose our
art piece to present to their 2006 award winner. The club also
decided to continue presenting this same trophy for the next ten years until
2015. With this in mind, we decided to retire this "#2 Sharknose
model" giving the club an exclusive on this trophy.
Vic Elford was the winner of
Daytona this year. A call to me from Mr. Rahal last year, to
commission another 15 signed sculptures, has now extend the presentations of our
"Phil Hill Sharknose", each year until 2030.
Many thanks to all the many clients and dealers who
have supported us in the past, on this Dino 156 venture, and in particular to my
Mr. Donn Gurney
- President of
Race Legends Incorporated for
bringing this all together for us.
