The Alfa Romeo 158 was an incredibly successful racing car. In 1950 it won the very first race held at Silverstone, England in the initial season of the modern Formula One World Championship. This car ultimately secured the championship title.
During that 1950 season the Alfa Romeo 158 was driven by the three “ F’s” – Farina, Fangio and Fagioli who finished first, second and third respectively in the championship and won all eleven races they contested.
Designed by Gioacchino Colombo, the 158 was powered by a 1479cc (58mm x70mm) eight-cylinder, 16-valve, twin overhead camshaft engine.  With two-stage supercharging it originally produced over 200bhp at 7500rpm which ultimately progressed to 350bhp at 8500rpm. The frame was tubular and independent suspension featured all round, via transverse leaf springs at the front and swing axles at the rear.
The Alfa Romeo 158, and later 159, reigned supreme with a victorious racing career spanning an amazing twelve years. From the first version appearing in 1938 until 1951 when it enabled the legendary Argentinian, Juan Manuel Fangio to win the first of his five Formula One World Championships.

From my early childhood days, I have always been fascinated by racing cars and music.  As I grew this passion and fascination developed alongside an emerging ability to draw, paint and play drums.
Life has a way of taking you in many directions over the years with many different outcomes.  Luckily for me I have now been given an opportunity to dedicate time to creating and drawing again.
Immersing myself in studying the greatest and most interesting racing cars and drivers in detail and making artwork which I turn into products that people can enjoy as well is a very rewarding experience.
It is even more rewarding to be able to share some of the benefits and profits from these products by helping other people.
Working with my wife Sue and her wonderful company Sacred by Design is a magic way for us to collaborate and help each other with projects we are passionate about.  Doing the things we love together and watching our endeavours being transformed into something we take pride in that also gives back to others and makes positive change.  It is a great feeling.
Do not wait too long to make the things you have always dreamt of doing into a reality.
