RP192 Pit Stop Circular Signage
Stock # 35859
”A wise man can learn more from his enemies than a fool from his friends.”
A circular pit sign used in the production of Ron Howard’s 2013 sports-drama, Rush.
Based on a true story, the film follows racing icons Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) during their infamous 1976 Formula One season. As their rivalry on and off the track begins to take its toll, a near-fatal injury leaves Lauda fighting for the championship and Hunt in pole position to take the title.
This sign and others like it can be seen numbering the garages along the pit lanes at the Mount Fuji race circuit in Japan during the final world championship race. The circular sign is made from painted metal, with a metal fixture on one side to secure it to the set. The outline of the number ‘16’ can be seen, indicating that digits may have previously been attached. The sign is noticeably rusted across both sides, particularly in the number outlines - this may be a result of on-set use and the wet conditions created for this scene. It is otherwise in fair condition. The sign measures approximately 51cm x 50cm (20” x 20”).
