Edition 3/3
Size: 100 x 120 cm.

This is the last of the Hawthorn D-Type LeMans Jaguars. Totally different painting technique used to the first two editions. The marking of the tragic event has been added in a very different style and location. Making it possible to hang the edition either portrait or landscape. Also a different size base. Making this edition a unique one-off.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Should Mike have swerved across the track so late to make his pit-stop? Should we celebrate his and Jaguar’s winning of the race? No doubt the worst day in motor racing history. Yet both Jaguar and Hawthorne won the race. Albeit in very sad circumstances. But for the car and the driver it can be claimed as the pinnacle of their success? So how do you celebrate one of the most beautiful cars and skilled drivers of their time without incorporating a very subtle understanding of the tragic events? Again, a wall mounted automotive sculpture to make you think.
