Today, we visited Tony Brooks at his home in Surrey where he kindly pledged his hand print to the on-going automotive ART project created by both Peter Critchell & Guy Portelli. As you will have seen in my previous posts, this is to raise money for BBC Children In Need. The end result will be a unique piece of automotive art that will include some of the finest F1 drivers this country has seen as well as other noted names.
You can see the project details at www.coronarosso.co.uk
Tony Brooks appeared in 39 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 14 July 1956, achieving six wins, 10 podium finishes and 75 career points. He placed third in the World Drivers' Championship in 1958 and second in 1959. Tony Brooks also scored the first win by a British driver in a British car in a Grand Prix since 1923, in 1955 driving a Connaught at Syracuse in a non-World Championship race.
