What can't be pictured here is the sound--Formula One engines of that era red-lined at 19,000 RPM. For comparison, this was over twice the speed of NASCAR engines. While NASCAR racers roared around the track, Formula One cars screamed--they sounded fast. Sitting in the Indianapolis grandstand on the fast main straight and hearing the full-throttle sound of the cars reverberate under the upper deck was an unforgettable aural experience.
This artwork was almost completely hand-rendered by the artist using Photoshop. Only some of the smaller logos that appear on the race cars, driver helmets, and spectator shirts were taken from existing sources, while many larger logos did require hand-rendering.
NOTE: THE FINE ART AMERICA WATERMARK ON THE IMAGE DOES NOT APPEAR ON THE PRINTS.
