As the Dude would say. 'It really ties the room together.' Very happy with this truly fascinating piece of art in our new home, thanks for the help and the home @pieterkoningsveld & @usearchitects
Such is life in racing • Le Mans 1954 • René Pari
Portrays an unfortunate incident in which Italy’s Count Innocente Biaggio and Dominican
playboy Porfirio Rubirosa raced a Ferrari 375 MM no. 18 (chassis 0380) entrusted by Luigi Chinetti, founder of the North American
Racing Team, an early arm of Ferrari in the United States.
Speeding around the famed Mulsanne corner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans,
the car uncontrollably spun out into the sand banks. Biaggio was determined to get back on the track by digging out the Ferrari even
while sporting a light grey Alpaca suit, silk shirt, and black bowtie!
His efforts prevailed for about an hour, after which he threw in the towel. He dusted off his trousers and shoes, replaced his hat, and lit
a cigarette. Pari was in just the right place at the right time to capture this iconic moment in racing history
