The epitome of the mechanic-driver, James Howden Ganley might not be a household name, but his reputation is formidable. Arriving in the UK in 1961, Howden Ganley worked as a mechanic for a number of motorsport outfits before finally landing a Formula 1 drive with BRM in 1971.
‘HOWDEN GANLEY’ depicts what may be seen as the pinnacle of the driver’s racing career. Having won the Von Trips Rookie Trophy at the end of 1971, Howden Ganley was promoted to the A-team of now-Marlboro-sponsored BRM for 1972, placing fourth at the Nurburgring. In ‘HOWDEN GANLEY’ the artist focuses on the excitement caused by a Formula 1 car – captured at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a crowd of excited spectators can be seen in reflection of the car’s rear view mirror.
‘HOWDEN GANLEY’ is presented as an original 800mm x 600mm print on aluminium in a limited edition of 25 pieces, signed and numbered by the artist.
All artworks include attachments for fitting the piece to the wall.
