Tazio Nuvolari

£ 29.00

This t-shirt design admires Tazio Nuvolari , one of the world's best ever grand prix drivers. He was one of the first, if not the first to master the four-wheel drift. He didnt start racing until he was 27, starting with motorcycle racing, he won the 350cc European Championship, then went on to concentrate solely on grand prix racing, driving for Alfa Corse, Maserati, Ferrari and Auto Union. World War II interupted his career, but he returned afterwards when he was 54 and won his final race in 1950. He was a a true legend and was admired by many.. after his death in 1953 up to 50,000 people attended his funeral and his procession was a mile long. His coffin was placed on a car chassis which was pushed by Alberto Ascari, Luigi Villoresi and Juan Manuel Fangio.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
