Leonello Design is a design company affiliated with the likes of Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, Zagato, and Touring Superleggera—-working on scale models and designs for them and other projects.

I’m not sure if any of them are available as prints or not, as not much is mentioned on their site.

BBC: “Grand Prix – The Killer Years” (4 Parts)

This is a fascinating show which was aired in the UK by BBC.  Split into 4 parts on YouTube; it documents some of the safety issues and concerns in 1950+ F1 racing.  There is some great footage, accompanied by sad and disturbing accident footage—-however it is overall, much much more interesting than just an accident compilation.  Well worth watching if you are into F1 history as I have become…

The part in Part 3 where Nick Drake’s music comes on in the background, while they are on Jim Clark’s onboard is just one of the most special pieces of a show i can remember in recent memory—-superb.

(Thanks to John Patterson for pointing this video series out!)
