"The Indianapolis Signature Series"

Mario Andretti, 1969, Indianapolis 500 victory

The history and the legends of those who took part in the famous Indianapolis 500 have always fascinated Colin. A number of all time racing legends have agreed to take part in a unique and historic series. Colin is pleased to announce the release of the first of this series featuring all time racing legend Mario Andretti, to celebrate his 1969 victory at the 'Brickyard'

Mario Andretti was always destined to win America's greatest race, and it came on his fifth attempt, racing his back-up Hawk-Ford after wrecking his Lotus-Ford in an earlier practice run.Starting at no2, he sailed past pole-sitter A.J.Foyt on the first turn to take the lead, and held this for 116 of the 200 lap race, After his main competitors Ruby, McCluskey and Foyt were forced to drop out, and in spite of almost hitting the wall on lap 150, Mario cruised to victory, two laps ahead of Dan Gurney at an average speed of 156.867 mph.
