Vintage Saab Road Race - Art Print

A reprint of a vintage 1960's advertising poster for the 'Giant's Despair' Road Race*.
The original bill poster featured a Saab two-stroke bullnose 93f, originals are quite rare as they were replaced on a regular basis. We scanned an original poster and produced this extremely accurate reproduction.

This is a high-resolution reproduction of the original poster, including the weather-worn surface from the original. It is printed on high quality 200gsm paper. The printing is sharp and vibrant.


Printed in the UK, at 11" x 17" (A3 - 297mm x 420mm) but can be printed at any size - email us for a quote.


*The Giant's Despair hill climb event was started in the 1950's and was described at the time as "the most severe hill climbing course on which an automobile race was ever run in this country.” The course runs a mile in length with a 650’ vertical climb of which the last one-quarter mile rises at more than 22 degrees. Today’s famous “Pike’s Peak” hillclimb has a maximum incline of only 14 degrees. At the same time, a road-race course with the strange sounding name of Brynfan Tyddyn was built on a farm property just west of Wilkes-Barre. The road race and hillclimb events were organized as a combined weekend affair as National Championship points were given for both events – Brynfan Tyddyn on Saturday with Giants Despair on Sunday.

Shipped in a cardboard tube.
