2011 Classic Formula 1 Calendar “Americana”

A tribute to American success in Grand Prix racing.

Long before Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher became world champions for France and Germany respectively, United States of America produced two world champions.

Phil Hill from Santa Monica lifted the title in 1961 with Scuderia Ferrari driving the beautiful shark-nose 156. Mario Andretti, in 1978, was the second American to claim the title in Colin Chapman’s ground-effect Lotus 79.

The 2011 Motorsport Memories calendar “Americana” is a tribute to drivers who carried the American Challenge to distant tracks.

From Harry Schell, the first American to score points in Grand Prix racing, to Eddie Cheever, who drove for Ron Dennis in Formula 2 and raced with British, American, Italian and French teams in Formula 1.

Dan Gurney, the All American Racer and gentleman, talks about his wide and varied world of motor racing experience in an exclusive interview.

Calendar, published and printed in the United States, is now available on our merchandise page.
