Poster for a 1967 race that never happened on a circuit that doesn't exist! The SIMS are alive and well on Pinterest, and have produced this lovely fantasy poster for a scenic fantasy F1 race that doesn't exist. The Swiss government declared circuit motor racing to be an unsafe sport in 1955 and banned all motor racing after the 1955 Le Mans disaster in France which killed more than 80 people. The ban has never been lifted. #F1 #SwissGP #FormulaFantasy #machinima
