|Antique Auto , July-August 1989
This commemorative ceramic sculpture depicts the winners of the Paris-Madrid race of 1903, racing in clouds of dust. The race was run on public roads, the first leg was from Paris to Bordeaux and due to deaths, injuries and the large number of accidents, it was halted after the first day. After the timing was sorted, Fernand Gabriel and his Mors was declared the winner, runner up was Louis Renault in his own racer. The sculpture is very well detailed, showing things like radiator tubing and the faces are apparently recognizable.
