2019 Fernando Alonso Used Qualifying McLaren Racing Indy 500 Suit
Suit used by former double Formula 1 World Champion Fernando Alonso in his attempt to capture motor racing’s triple crown (Monaco Grand Prix, 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the Indy 500). 2019 saw Alonso’s second attempt at winning the prestigious race after being denied the year before by engine failure while vying for the lead. Unfortunately, the newly formed and inexperienced Mclaren IndyCar team were beset with several mechanical problems and crash damage making their chance of qualifying for the race minimal. Even an experienced F1 World Champion driving for a legendary motorsport powerhouse could not get their entry up to speed and as Alonso failed to make the starting line up by just 0.019mph. This illustrates in how winning the Indianapolis 500 is one of the toughest tasks in the whole of motorsport.
This is the suit Alonso used while trying to gain entry to the starting grid. The sharp-looking Sparco suit’s oxford blue color has an orange sash on its front running from the left side and across the legs and that breaks into triangular and square shapes on the right leg. Within this sash is Alonso’s race #66. The midriff bears team sponsors Mission and RJ Reynolds lettered branding trademarks. Other branding logos are on the chest and its blue/black arms including Autonation, Dell, Mindmaze and Speedway to name a few. The back of the suit has a continuation of the orange sash from the waist upwards, again breaking into triangular and square shapes.
