1979 Jody Scheckter Ferrari F1 World Champion Original Ron Burton Artwork
Original artwork by renowned motor sport artist Ron Burton. It depicts a fantastic ‘side on’ view of South African racer Jody Scheckter on his way to winning the 1979 F1 World Championship. Scheckter is driving his Scuderia Ferrari 312T, splashing through the rain, at his home Grand Prix at the Kyalami Circuit. He would finish second behind teammate Gilles Villeneuve in the rain-soaked race. With this result, along with three wins and six other top-five finishes, Schechter would go on to win the title by three points in his season-long battle with Villeneuve.
The work is in Ron Burton’s unique abstract style in which he uses brush and pallet knife applied oil on canvas. The approximate size of composition is 48 x 24 inches and comes framed in black colored aluminum.
The artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
