A very happy repeat client of mine, John Connor, requested a special commission painting for Paddy Hopkirk’s 50th Anniversary as a gift for his son. John is a real fan and friend of Paddy and has spent many years in adoration of his racing life. With this in mind, I was inspired to design this painting on Paddy’s winning victory in 1964 Monte Carlo Rally, racing his well known 33 EJB Mini Cooper.

When completed, this one off original painting was presented at BMC’s Himley Hall to James Connor by Paddy Hopkirk himself. It was also signed by Paddy Hopkirk.

John was delighted with his commission piece and I am pleased I was able to make the hand-over day as special as the painting itself!
