1981 Mario Andretti Patrick Racing Worn Suit
Race suit worn by one of the greatest race drivers of all time, Mario Andretti. This heavy layered Simpson suit has a manufacturing date from 1979. We know Mario used this suit (through his confirmation) during a Goodyear tire test with the Pat Patrick Racing Team in 1981. Over the years Mario drove for Team Penske, Patrick Racing in CART IndyCar, Team Lotus and Marlboro Team Alfa Romeo in the Formula One championship, as well as in some sports car races. We presume that this suit was used more than once during these years and could possibly have been used with any of the teams mentioned above in test/practice/qualifying or race situations. The suit has the stitch marks where team/sponsor patches have been removed. It still retains its Goodyear patches on the left chest and back of the suit, as well as CART, Champion and Simpson patches on the arms. Mario’s name is embroidered on the right side above a zippered pocket. The suit is also personally signed by the man himself on the left chest.
Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to add this fantastic piece of motor sport memorabilia to your collection today.
The suit comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
