ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Max Papis was asked to step up and fill the racing boots of the “No Fear” racing legend Krosnoff in 1996. Papis’s “Mad Max”Italian flair, smile and spirit brought much enthusiasm to the team during its darkest hour and Arciero Wells completed the 1996 CART season with Papis returning the following year to lead the team. Max left Arciero in 1999 for other racing pursuits.
This rare piece of automotive literature marks a significant time in CART racing history when the HANS device was not a required safety device. It was widely believed at the time among the racing community that had the usage of the HANS safety device been sanctioned by CART at the time, late drivers Krosnoff and Earnhardt may very well have survived their accidents.
