"We Race What We Sell"... that is the motto of Brumos Porsche. A racing heritage that started with Volkswagen in 1954, the legend continues to this day with VP of competition Hurley Haywood at the Jacksonville, Florida dealership.
In 1972 Bob Snodgrass took over as General Manager and dictated the racecars should change from the Tangerine color to the more American white with red and blue striping. The iconic "Brumos Sweep" was born. The colors first appeared late in the 1972 Can-Am series on Brumos Porsche 917-10. In this scene, the 1100 horsepower monster sits in front of the Brumos Porsche dealership. Driver and Dealer Principal Peter Gregg has his photo taken for a press release. Standing next to the 1972 IMSA Camel GT Championship 911S, driver Hurley Haywood waits his turn to be photographed.
The painting "Brumos 1972" has been reproduced as a limited edition of 500 signed and numbered prints plus 50 signed and numbered artist proofs. The image measures 16.5" x 26" and is printed on high quality acid free stock trimmed to 22" x 28"; Giclee Canvas prints measure 28" x 40" (same size as the original painting).
