Below is a small selection of paintings,
which I created in recent years

AVUS 1954

Acrylics on canvas, size is 60x80cm.
(Commissioned work)

The legendary banked AVUS Nordkurve during the non-championship F1 race in 1954 with the three streamlined Mercedes of Fangio, Kling and Herrmann in front of the Gordini of Jean Behra.
My customer wanted this picture to commemorate his first Formula 1 race as a spectator. The eight-year-old experienced this formative event in the infield of the famous Nordkurve - it was exactly this perspective that I wanted to reflect in my painting.

Brothers

Acrylics on canvas, size is 100x70cm.

The careers of Jo Siffert and Pedro Rodriguez were fatefully linked. In 1971, both drove for the John Wyer factory team with Porsche in the Sports Car World Championship and for BRM in F1. This painting shows them at their last start together at the French GP in Paul Ricard. Shortly afterwards, Rodriguez had a fatal accident at the Norisring, and Siffert was killed at the end of the season in Brands Hatch.
The original painting is on display at Meilenstein in Langenthal/CH and is for sale.

It shows the second-placed Porsche 917 with H. Müller and R. Attwood at Le Mans 1971.

Ayrton in Imola

Acrylics on canvas, size is 100x160cm.

I've always wanted to capture the theme of "Ayrton Senna / Imola" in a painting. This should be done in the most respectful manner possible. Since I was very moved by the statue on my first visit to the memorial in Tamburello, I really wanted to include it in the picture. I hope that with this picture I have created a worthy memory of the great champion!

Starting line-up for the start of the 1961 German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, moments before the race begins.
This painting was made in memory of Wolfgang Graf Berghe von Trips, who captivated the whole of Germany in 1961. The customer was there in person at the time, and this race gave rise to his lifelong fascination with the Count's personality.

Jo Siffert

Acrylics on canvas, size 160x100cm.

Swiss racing hero Jo Siffert regularly showed up in his homecountry where circuit racing is forbidden to this day. He did demo-runs in his current cars like in this painting, where he raced the Rob Walker Lotus 49 in the famous hillclimb in St. Ursanne / Les Rangiers.
The painting is done in a sort of "Art-Deco" style and shows him underneath the famous bridge which crosses the road.

In 1986, the private Brun team achieved a surprising victory in the World Sports Car Championship! With a lot of passion and professionalism they defeated the factory teams from Porsche and Jaguar, also thanks to the excellent driving team with drivers like et al. Thierry Boutsen, Oscar Larrauri and Frank Jelinski.
