Back in 1999 i entered the annual Grand Prix Sportique international motoring art competition,
in the past it had launched the career of Juan Carlos Ferrigno.
I was delighted when i got second prize,out of 600+ contestants world wide.
Apart from a big amount of money a lot of good came out of it,but it didn't change my career,wich looking back was a good thing,i would probably still have peen painting photographic...eek!
Here is the winner Andreas Mindt on the right and yours truly on the left.
