The winner is small

Here’s a photo from the October 14 1936 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a auto race winner who won a trophy that he could fit into:

Tazio Nuvolari (1892-1953) raced motorcycles in the 1920s and cars after that. He won a total of 150 races, and Ferdinand Porsche called him “the greatest driver of the past, the present, and the future.”

There are a number of videos of Nuvolari on YouTube; this one, lasting 22 minutes, looks to be the most comprehensive.
