World's Greatest Air Race - Vintage Australian Tourism Poster.

World's greatest air race for MacRobertson Trophy

Artwork for the original Colour Lithograph was created by Percy Trompf  and published by Australian National Travel Association in 1934.

Trompf was motivated with the excitement of the Open-Air Ace Pilot in this wonderful piece and by 1934 the MacRobertson Trophy Air Race proved that those days where nothing but memories, the fastest competitors were the monoplanes in protected cockpits.

The International Air Race, from London to Melbourne, was sponsored by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir MacPherson Robertson, who had founded the largest confectionary business in the Commonwealth, MacRobertson Confectionary Manufacturers Ltd. The race covered 18,240 km (11,330 miles) from England to Australia and all the competitors were required to land at Baghdad, Allabad, Singapore, Darwin and Charleville. Prizes for the race included 10,000 pounds and a gold cup for the overall winner.

The Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Sir Harold Gengoult-Smith had the idea for the race to mark the centenary of the foundation of Victoria and the Victorian Centenary Council supported his proposal. The Melbourne Mayor approached philanthropist Sir Macpherson Robertson, who provided financial support.
