Graham Hill – Gold Leaf Team Lotus

Graham Hill

One of the most iconic images of the 50’s / 60’s Motor Racing world was the face of Graham Hill – mustachieod with sideburns and slick backed long hair he always looked so relaxed and at ease and was synoymous with racing in the streets of Monaco and Lotus F1 cars painted red and white (Gold Leaf Team Lotus).

He is the only World Champion to have a son who was also World Champion (Damon Hill) and was also the holder of that Triple Crown of Motor racing; Le Mans Winner, F1 Champ’ and Indy 500 winner.  I’ve painted up this Denizen 43rd scale figure from his time driving the Lotus 49 sponsored by the John Player Tobacco group under their Gold Leaf brand.
