Newly arrived Original 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster

Original 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster.

June 15 and 16, 2014.

60 x 40 cm.
23.5 x 15.5 inches.

Mint condition.

The 2014 Le Mans poster is part of the era in Le Mans posters which is generally described as "The Le Mans Poster in the era of computer graphics and sponsorship" and which lasts from 2001 until the current day.

The 82nd edition of the Le mans 24 Hours is placed under the banner of innovation and the poster defines an area of rich expression aimed at a wide-ranging public by projecting them into a powerful and attractive imaginary environment.

Pride of place goes to the new prototypes launched in 2014 which, propelled by luminous, electric colours, leap out of the poster.

A cleaner and less figurative universe than in the past, which fits perfectly with the new slogan: "Le future entre en piste" which loosely translates into "The future enters the ring".

For the fifth time it is the fruit of collaboration between the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and the LAFOURMI communications agency.

The event was won by Benoit Treluyer, Marcel Fassler and Andre Lotterer in their number 2 Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro.

June 23 & 24, 1962.

This poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Michel Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The poster shows a fantastic image, by Michel Beligond, of a Ferrari similar to that of the 1961 winners powering its way onto Tertre Rouge and the artist tries to underline the physical effort made by the drivers.

The phrase "Championat Mondial de vitesse et d'endurance" are added to the poster to distinguish the race from the Formula One Grand Prix. The sentence translates into "World Speed and Endurance Championship".

Newly arrived Vintage Original 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster

Vintage original 24 Heures du Mans Poster 1961.

June 10 & 11, 1961.

This poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Michel Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The poster shows a fantastic image, by Michel Beligond, of the # 12 Ferrari 250 TRI/60 powering its way out of the Esses and heading towards Tertre Rouge during the previous edition in 1960.

The combination of warm colors represents the arrival of dusk, highlighting the red Ferrari in the center of the poster. This year, 1961, the race was part of the Sports Car World Championship.

Measures approximately:
16 x 23 inches
41 x 58 cm

lm1973scarf

Vintage 1973 24 Hours of Le Mans Silk Scarf

Newly arrived Vintage 1971 Le Mans 24 Hours Flyer

Vintage 1973 24 Hours of Le Mans Silk Scarf.

Near mint condition for its age.

This is a very scarce 24 Heures du Mans scarf which looks to be made of silk (not 100% sure about the material though).

The design (signed J.F.) follows the design of the 1973 program booklet which is very different from that of the poster as there is no hint whatsoever towards the race track or national pride.

The global aspect is highlighted by the illusion of speed and the flags towering high over the cars speeding by.

The scarf was printed by Le Pilier Vert in 72320 Champrond, France, the same printshop that printed the poster in 1972, 1973 and 1974.

It measures some 65 x 67.5 cm and is in excellent condition considering it over 40 years old now.

A fantastic relic from an era gone-by and one of the few surviving examples (the first we have ever owned!).

Please note that the scarf is being held to a kind of back-board by paperclips for the photo, to keep it flat. It will be shipped folded along its original fold-lines.

The 1973 race was won by Henri Pescarolo and Gerard Larousse in their # 11 Matra Simca MS670B with a total of 356 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1973.

Newly arrived Vintage 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours Flyer

Vintage 1951 Le Mans 24 Hours Race Program.

A GREAT booklet from only the third post-WW2 running of the 24 Heures du Mans and Jaguar's first Le Mans win!

The colour illustration on the cover is from the first by Geo Ham (Georges Hamel) for the Le Mans 24 Hours.

It shows two types of cars in the race.

In the foreground are the old-generation machines with their pre-war design which were still victorious in 1950 while the new generation of cars is shown in the background.

The booklet measures some 13.5 x 23.5 cm and contains 160 pages filled to the brim with information of the cars, the drivers, previous editions of the race, the track and of course great contemporary advertising.

As visible in the pictures, it does show a fair degree of wear, it has some loose pages (missing the tableau de pointage) and is in somewhat fragile overall condition.

The race was won by Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead in their Jaguar XK-120C with a total of 267 laps to their name.

Vintage Original 1952 Mercedes Benz Victory Poster 24 Hours of Le Mans

Newly arrived Vintage Original 1952 Mercedes Benz Victory Poster 24 Hours of Le Mans

Vintage Original 1952 Mercedes Benz Victory Poster 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This is a vintage original 1952 Mercedes poster annoucing their hard-fought double victory in the 1952 running of Les 24 Heures du Mans.

French driver Pierre Levegh, who was driving his privately entered Talbot Lago T26 GS Spider, was leading by a comfortable 4 laps when his engine gave up the ghost and the lead was passed to Herrmann Lang and Fritz Riess in their Mercedes-Benz 300 SL with Theo Helfrich and Helmut Niedermayr, also on a 300 SL, in second place.

Levegh, although officially partenered with Rene Marchand, had no relief driver and had been at the wheel for 22 hours and 45 minutes (!) when the Talbot's engine blew up.

Levegh tried it two more times at Le Mans with his ageing Talbot before moving over to Mercedes-Benz in 1955 which lead to, what is considered, the biggest catastrophy in motor racing history...

Completely unaware of what the future held in store, Mercedes proudly issued this poster in the second half of 1952 to annouce their victory.

lm1960mulsanne

Vintage 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans Mulsanne Signalling Post Ticket Stub

Newly arrived Vintage 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans Mulsanne Signalling Post Ticket Stub

Vintage 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans Ticket for the Signaling Post at Mulsanne corner.

In the days before on-board radios, the team managers relayed their orders to the drivers via signaling boards at Mulsanne corner, which was about half way through a lap.

Those orders were relayed to personnel at Mulsanne by landline telephone. The guys at Mulsanne than put the "orders" on the signalling boards (for example: slow, fast, pits, fuel etc" and held the boards in plain view of the drivers right after Mulsanne corner.

Mulsanne corner was an excellent place to do this as it was about halfway through the lap which gave team management ampel time to consider what orders to give, allow the boards to be "dressed" with the right instructions and Mulsanne was about the slowest part of the track, giving the drivers good opportunity to clearly read the signs.

This particular ticket was worn by one the guys at Mulsanne Signaling Post on June 25 and 26 1960 during the running of Les 24 heures du Mans and therewith a rare and very collectable piece of Le Mans memorabilia.

The race was won by Paul Frère and Olivier Gendebien in their Nr 11 Ferrari 250 TR 59/60 S/N 0774TR with a total of 314 laps to their name.

Newly arrived Vintage Original 1963 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster

Vintage Original 1963 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster.

June 15 & 16, 1963

Measures approximately 40 x 57 cm
15.5 x 22.5 inches

Absolutely stunning, totally mint condition.

The 1963 Le Mans poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Michel Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The poster shows a fantastic image, by G. Laygnac, of the winning make of the previous year, Ferrari.

Although the 1962 winner is depicted, the poster is of a much more symbolic nature than previous years.

The idea of time is overwhelmingly present, as is that of speed which is symbolized by the whirlpool.

This poster marked the end of an era after which illustrations would be replaced by photographs.

The race itself was won by Lorenzo Bandini and Ludovico Scarfiotti in their Nr 21 Ferrari 250 P (S/N 0814) with a total of 339 laps to their name.
