Pedro Rodriguez Ferrari 312P Nurburgring 1000 KM 1969 Poster.
A truely great poster of Pedro Rodriguez flying his Ferrari 312P S/N 0870 over Brunnchen during the 1969 1000KM at the Nurburgring. The car, S/N 0870, suffered from ignition failure and retired but not before setting the fastest lap in the race.
The caption reads as follows:
"Ferrari did not care too much about sports car racing in 1969. They only sent one car to most of the races which had to fight against four or more Porsches. Despite flying hard here at Brunnchen the 312P retired with ignition problems. The 312 P meant a change in shape from the round bodywork in 1967 to a more arrow-shape darting through the air, with more grip achieved through various added spoilers"

The hazy scan does not do justice to this very fine poster.
