Ards TT – Bentley travel poster

Vintage style travel poster art print of Tim Birkin driving a Blower Bentleys at the 1930 RAC Tourist Trophy Race (TT) at Newtownards.



Art Deco print of the 1930 Ards TT (RAC Tourist Trophy Race) with Sir Henry (Tim) Birkin powering his Blower Bentley through Conway Square in Newtownards. The eventual winner was the Italian driver Tazio Nuvolari heading an Alfa Romeo 1-2-3. From 1928 through to 1936, public roads between Dundonald, Newtownards and Comber were closed to host the RAC Tourist Trophy races, the equivalent to a modern day Grand Prix. Up to 500,000 spectators lined the roads in awe as the top drivers from around the world expertly (and courageously) drove great marques such as Bentley, Mercedes, MG, Riley, Alfa Romeo and Bugatti at magnificent speeds.


All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea.

The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the James Kelly Art watermarks shown on the screen previews.

Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing.

UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 - 3 days.
International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA.

Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) - all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch.

*** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am will likely not be shipped until the following working day.

I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.


I don't supply framed prints, but all my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc.
