McLaren F1 GTR Team Lark poster print by Pete Dials.

Carefully produced with our giclée process to maximize color accuracy and resolution. At Simply Petrol, we use the highest-quality Hahnemühle fine art paper (315 gsm) with delicate texture and acid-free surface.

Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail.

Description

McLaren F1 GTR Team Lark depicted on this elegant poster print is the outcome of the British engineering, German mechanics, and Japanese racing culture. It was also the fastest McLaren F1 of them all, including the epic Long Tail version with 330 km/h measured at the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans in 1996.

After the glorious McLaren F1 win in 1995 in its first entrance at Le Mans, the car was upgraded to remain competitive in season 1996. This way McLaren F1 GTR received larger splitter in front, new bodywork modified for quick repairs and lighter gearbox. Just 9 cars were built in this specification and two older GTRs were converted.

Team Goh of Japan, also known as Team Lark purchased chassis #13R and #14R in order to compete in the All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship (JGTC) in class GT 500. Team Lark was named after Lark cigarettes (reminder for the times when motorsports and tobacco industry were great friends) which were the team sponsor. For season 1996, Team Lark relied on David Brabham and John Nielsen as well as to Ralf Schumacher and Naoki Hattori, which car is depicted on this very poster.

Team Lark McLaren F1 GTR was glorious racer

Lark McLaren took 1-2 finish in their opening competition at Suzuka with winners Hattori/Schumacher. With four victories during the season, Team Lark captured the GT500 team championship title ahead of factory supported squads of Toyota and Nissan. As of today, McLaren F1 GTR Team Lark is the only racer managed to the Championship title at JGTC / GT 500. Lamborghini, Ferrari, BMW, Dodge, Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin tried but and even won few races but none of them succeeded to the title. Well done, McLaren!

Now you can feel the spirit of Team Lark with the glorious McLaren F1 GTR racer through this shining poster print, beautifully created by Peter Dials and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

Peter has now returned to “drawing” cars stemming from his passion in racing and his interest in the graphic design of racing liveries.  His focus has been on creating illustrations of iconic liveries and the cars they were applied to.  Peter focuses on the shape, lines, colors, and shadows to create a clean and simplistic but eye-catching illustration.  Peter also creates detailed illustrations of whatever car inspires him at the time.
