Maranello Concessionaires 40th Anniversary - Art Exhibition – The Air Gallery, London

22 November – 2 December 2000

As part of their 40th anniversary celebrations Ferrari U.K. (Maranello Concessionaires Ltd) held an exhibition of motoring art at the Air Gallery in London, organised by Grand Prix Sportique.


The exhibition features works in a variety of styles, by a wide range of international artists. These included Dexter Brown (GB), Alan Fearnley (GB), Juan Carlos Ferrigno (E), Jorge Garcia (ARG), Heinz Krebs (D), Andreas Mindt (D), William Motta (USA), Bill Neale (USA) and Craig Warwick (GB), the latter being commissioned to produce a work featuring all the cars raced by the Maranello Concessionaires team.


A preview evening with  a cocktail party was held on Monday 20 November, attended by many of the drivers who raced for the team, together with Jody Scheckter who unveiled the commissioned painting during the evening. Ferrari Chairman and President , Luca di Montezemolo, together with Andrea Zappia, the Commercial & Marketing Director, presented a specially produced anniversary piece from Ferrari, a 1960 piston and valves alongside a 2000 piston and valves, mounted on a Schedoni leather base. The guest list read like a motor racing who’s who. Among those in attendance were Richard Attwood, Derek Bell, Ross Brawn, Tony Brooks, Bette Hill (wife of the late Graham Hill), David Piper, Mike Salmon, Jack Sears, Jacques Swaters and Rob Walker. It was also nice to see that the company roots had not been forgotten, as Anne Hoare, the wife of the company founder, the late Colonel Ronnie Hoare, and her son were the guests of honour.
