The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, May 27 this year, is widely considered one of the most important days on the motorsports calendar, starting at 9:00 am is the illustrious Monaco Grand Prix, followed by the Indianapolis 500 at noon, and the day concludes with NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 at 6:20 pm, a series of events totaling 28 hours of Racing!  

We here at l’art et l’automobile know how we are going to spend Sunday, constantly glued to the TV screen watching these races, but for those of you who are interested in partaking in every aspect of this enormous day of Racing, and as a special bonus, we have collected all of our Monoco, Indy and NASCAR artwork, memorabilia and collectables into one gallery, and are presenting it to you.  Feel free to tour the collection here, and perhaps add a few pieces to your collection for race day!
