The history of motorsports has written lots of exiting stories and brought out some real legends. Some the most interesting moments from the golden age of motorsports from the late 60s and early 70s are part of the Grand Prix Collection.
GRAND PRIX ORIGINALS is the brand for drive and lifestyle – past and present and we are so excited to announce that we are now the exclusive distributors in North America! Discover premium products from the 60’s and 70’s –the golden age of racing sport. The days when true values still meant something. Where heroes like Jacky Ickx, Jo Siffert, Jim Clark and Jochen Rindt performed on the stages of Spa, Monaco, Le Mans or the old Nürburgring. Where race cars seemed to have wings and the times did as well!
Along with the Formula One, it was the longer races with Shelby Cobras, Ferraris, GT 40s and Porsches that captured the imagination of the fans. The orange and blue cars of the Gulf Racing Team and the iconic Gulf Porsche 917 are still alive! Steve McQueen, enthusiastic “motorhead” and hobby race car driver paid tribute to those cars and drivers with his film Le Mans in 1970.
GRANDPRIX ORIGINALS (GPO) reflects the spirit of these times with its authentic collection of racing and leather jackets, accessories, shirts and travel gear with original sponsor logos and stylish influences of then and now. The DNA of the GPO drive styles is red and blue, like the legendary stripes on the racing suits of the times.
This week, we unpacked and displayed the newest shipment in our accessories display and boy did members go wild. This is an amazing addition to the clubhouse and soon to be found at the boutique store at the Villa Eyrie Resort for all to enjoy. As North Americas exclusive source for this line, we now have the ultimate gift for anyone who’s inspired by driving, motorsport and the times of the “true drivers and race cars”.
