Elio de Angelis JPS Team Lotus – 1/43 Limited edition metal figure

Back in the late 70’s / early 80’s Italian racing driver Elio de Angelis drove for the Lotus and Brabham F1 teams.  Like many drivers of that era, he tragically lost his life while testing for Brabham in the south of France.   Apart from being a very talented driver (two F1 wins) he was also an accomplished concert pianist!   In this limited edition hand-casting, I’ve portrayed him sporting his JPS overalls together with his trademark “Darth Vadar” look Simpson crash helmet.
