Senna The Movie - A review by Matt Upton

When James Allen recently hosted a preview screening of the movie Senna, GPL were lucky enough to be invited along. Our plan was to write a review of the movie to let you know exactly what a treat you’re in for when the film hits cinemas this July. Fortunately for us however, a young man by the name of Matt Upton was also attending the screening, who has written articles for both Autosport, and the Motorsport News. So, rather than us write “It’s great, go and watch it”, here’s something a little more substantial.

But, seriously, go and watch it. It’s great! Read the rest of this entry »

The 2010 Formula One Championship Presentation from Grand Prix Legends

Coming into the final race of the 2010 F1 season, four drivers were still in with a shout of glory. Hamilton looked to have the pace to challenge for the win he needed, but got caught for too long behind the excellent Robert Kubica, thus denying him his second title. Mark Webber’s afternoon never really got going, and once Fernando Alonso was caught behind the Renault of Vitaly Petrov, it became clear that it was Sebastian Vettel’s title to lose.

An emotional Vettel was in tears as he took the chequered flag to become the youngest champion the sport has ever seen, a doubly impressive feat when you consider the position he was in with just a few races to go.

To celebrate this fantastic achievement, we are delighted to announce that we will once again be producing our 1:18 World Championship Presentation, exclusive to Grand Prix Legends. The presentation will feature the Minichamps replica of Sebastian’s Red Bull RB6, mounted on a custom designed metal base complete with engraved name plaque and season results. For collectors of F1 diecast, this truly unique tribute to the 2010 champion really is a must have.

Retro Grand Prix T-shirts

Right now we’re going through somewhat of a golden era in Formula One with racing that is as close and exciting as it’s ever been. But for some of us the glory days were always yesterday, when the cars got closer to one another than they do today and when the characters who drove them seemed as wild and erratic as the machines they piloted.

This exciting new range of Retro Grand Prix T-shirts celebrates the history of Formula One. There are sixteen teams currently featured in the range, teams that will be familiar to all enthusiasts of the sport. Names like Hesketh, Brabham, BRM, March, Cooper, Leyton House, Wolf, Vanwall, Tyrrell and Shadow.

The list of drivers who have driven for these teams reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of the sport. Think Moss, Brooks, Hill, Hunt, Scheckter, Senna, Stewart, Peterson, Brabham, Fittipaldi, Piquet and so on.

We think the range is terrific, with top quality print work applied to 100% Cotton T-shirts. Rumour is that there will be more classic F1 teams and garments to follow. We can’t wait.

But, there is one thing we have to point out. The logos that appear on these shirts are applied for decorative purposes only. They do not imply an association with any of the teams in question. The shirts are not endorsed or approved by any third party and the logos are not used in a “trade mark sense” to suggest a source of origin. We thought you should know, just in case there’s any confusion!
