1936 Lotteria di Tripoli event poster.
This vintage original event poster is very large – over 4.5 feet tall (39×55” / 99x140cm ) and is in very good condition but with original fold lines that were minimized with linen mounting. The artwork by famous Italian designer ‘Martinati’ is of a stylized Maserati 8CM / 4C. This was printed in Rome and dated ‘1-2-1936’. The event was held in conjunction with the lottery in Libya and this was the 10th Grand Prix there.
- The race was won by Achille Varzi in the Auto Union C-Type followed by Hans Stuck in the sister car. However it proved to be a gifted victory as Nuvolari raced with broken ribs yet still finished 8th in the Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo P3 Tipo B.
This gem is of course offered with our lifetime certificate.
