Featuring the World Renown Art Work of Artist Simon Ward
Simon Ward grew up surrounded by motorsports. He attended his first Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1972 at Brands Hatch at the age of eight years old.
His art captures the excitement and drama of the sport while focusing on the drivers, the cars, the circuits and all of the elements of historically significant scenes at various races. His portfolio encompasses momentous events from the 1930’s to current day action, often within a few days of the most recent race.
His art is collected throughout the world, including at the homes of some of his hero drivers, race circuits and corporate sponsors. His art is on permanent display at Sebring Airport as a tribute to the annual 12 Hours race there.
Much of Simon Ward’s art work can be viewed at: www.circuitbyinroads.com.
For the enthusiast who would like a painting of his or her own car, Simon will create a painting of their prized machine on a commission basis.
