Hi,

I went to a fleamarket here in Belgium and I found someking of drawing (or a leaflet for something)
with on it some of the cars Graham Hill drove in, the first one is 49C gold leaf, there are BRM's and a Lotus 49. There is some kind of controltower to the right like they have a Monza. I think its a drawing to celebrate Graham's career. But strangely enought there are some signatures under it. The names I can put on them are : JM Fangio, Tim Parnell, Colin Chapman (with a note : to a fabulous drive, Bruce McLaren, Jack Brabham, Pedro Rodriguez, Jackie Stewart, Jackie Oliver, JP Beltoise, Jochen Rindt, John Cooper & Tony Rudd and a couple that I don't recognize.
Right under the drawing is a name or something : Dion Pears.

Sorry that I can't scan it, but the scanner is being replaced at the moment.

Has anyone got an idea if this was somekind of publicity drawing or something ?

Dion Pears is the artist that did the drawing;if you do a 'Google' or other internet search, you'll see various samples of his work.

I have seen this drawing in a book somewhere - I've racked my brains but I can't remember which one. Indy 500: presumably the signatures are part of the printing, rather than originals?
