OO GAUGE OXFORD DIECAST 1:76
76BB002 BENTLEY BLOWER FRENCH GRAND PRIX 1930 No 8 BIRKIN
During the 1920s and 1930s, Britain produced some very keen and capable racing drivers, mostly wealthy young men with prestigious cars! Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin was one of those and in addition he was part of W O Bentley’s ‘Bentley Boys’, a group of like minded gentlemen and mechanics, all with a shared interest in speed. 1930 was a good one for ‘Tim’ Birkin. Behind the wheel of his Bentley Blower, he clocked up notable successes of which the French Grand Prix was one. Driving his supercharged Blower for Great Britain, numbered 18, he went on to finish 2nd in the race.
Oxfords second release on the Bentley Blower is a 1:76 scale replica of the car, which is decorated in dark green with the number 18 in white on all sides of the vehicle while proudly sporting the Union Flag on the two doors. Additional detail includes tan bonnet straps, black tonneau cover, dark green seating with black/silver dashboard and light brown flooring. This model Bentley represents another chapter in the Blower/Birkin partnership from an exciting era in the sport.
