The 1984 to nowadays Daytona International Speedway track version.
The self-styled "World Center of Racing,” Daytona Beach is the spiritual home of NASCAR, as well as the organisation’s headquarters. The season-opening Daytona 500 has been NASCAR's most prestigious event since the speedway opened in 1959. Lee Petty’s Oldsmobile won the first race in a photo finish that took three days to decide, and the tradition of close racing at Daytona continues to this day. In 1979, a fight broke out between Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison after they crashed on the last lap while disputing the lead of the Daytona 500, broadcast live on network television. Daytona will also be forever associated with the shocking loss of NASCAR stalwart Dale Earnhardt, who was killed in the closing laps of the 2001 race. In addition to stock car racing, Daytona also features a road course that has been used for the 24-hour sports car race since 1966. Excavating the dirt required to build the imposing 31-degree banking left an area that has since become Lake Lloyd, the 44-acre body of water located in the infield.
50 x 70cm | 19 ¾ x 27 ½ "
This high-quality giclée print is produced on acid-free papers using archival inks to guarantee that they last a lifetime without fading or loss of colour.
The print includes a 4.5cm (1.77") white border around the illustration to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.
The print is delivered unframed but is ready to be framed in a 50 x 70cm frame.
The modern UV paper from Sihl (135g/m²) is bleached to a bright white and offers the perfect foundation for reproducing the original colours with remarkable richness. A matte coating ensures it is incredibly robust and resistant to changes in temperature and splashes of water.
My printer uses the most modern, super-wide-format printing system from HP. For this premium poster, he uses eight colours, rather than four; light magenta and cyan inks allow additional sharpness, improved resolution, and finer tonality in lighter image areas.
Whichever format you choose, the colours will be equally impressive, the grey balance will be completely neutral, and the contours extremely sharp. After printing, he hardens the inks six times using UV light to make your print resistant to external influences. It will be at its best for years to come.
