JUAN MANUEL FANGIO visited South Africa, 3 years prior to his death on 17 July 1995 at the age of 84. His visit to South Africa took place in September of 1992. Kevin Waite was the Artist who was commissioned by Pirelli to paint the oil painting to commemorate Fangio’s visit.

These photographs show Fangio signing the original oil painting and posing with the Artist. A strictly limited edition of 500 prints was reproduced from the Artists’ original oil painting and Fangio personally signed every print. The Artist also personally signed and numbered every print.

The Pirelli Agent commissioned the oil painting and Fangio once said, ‘Pirelli helped me when no-one knew Fangio. When I first came to Europe with my Equipo Argentino, we had very little money. Pirelli gave me tyres on a ‘race now, pay later’ basis. These are things one never forgets.’

Fangio won 5 formula 1 world motor racing championships.
