JERSEY (2022)- Formula 1- Race Cars (5v & 2 Souvenir Sheets)
Formula One is the pinnacle of world motorsport, the highest class of international auto racing for single-seater formula racing cars sanctioned by the Féderation Internationale
de l’Automobile. Originally called Formula A, the first race to approved Formula One rules was a Grand Prix race held at Valentino Park, Turin, Italy, on 1 September 1946. After a mediocre start, a generation of British engineers and drivers came onto the scene to win a cluster of World Championships and develop an excellence in producing British designed and manufactured cars, continuing to dominate the sport to this day.
Jersey Post released a ten-stamp issue on 1 September 2021, celebrating the Birth of Formula One 75 years ago. Specifically dedicating itself to the ten British drivers that have achieved the ultimate accolade of World Champion, award-winning artist Keith Burns’ fabulously dynamic artwork features each of these champions of the sport duelling with their rivals.
