Description

Artist: JOSEP SEGRELLES (1885-1969) Size: 26 1/4 x 21 1/4 in./66.7 x 54 cm Rieusset, Barcelona Located just outside of Barcelona, the Sitges-Terramar racing circuit was designed and built in 1922 as an outlet for the newly-formed Autodromo Nacional. This breathtaking poster, seemingly giving us a wormís eye view beneath the speeding cars, was from the trackís inaugural -- and only -- season. With unpaid construction bills piling up, contractors seized the gate money, causing the owners to be unable to pay the winning prize money to the drivers. A few minor races were held by independent groups in the mid-1920s and again in the 1950s, but the track has remained basically in disuse since 1923. This is the smaller format version of the poster.
