Vintage 1959 Press Photo of the crashed Aston Martin DBR1/300 of Brian Naylor, the Cooper Monaco of Bruce McLaren and the Stanguellini Faure and Guyot at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
This is a vintage 1959 Associated Press Photo of the crashed Nr 7 Aston Martin DBR1 (S/N 5) of Brian Naylor (and Graham Whitehead) near Maison Blanche where Brian had skidded off the track at around 10.00 PM on June 20, 1959 during the 1959 running of Les 24 Heures du Mans.
Also in the picture (albeit very hard to make out) are the remains of the Cooper Monaco T49 Climax of Bruce McLaren and Jim Russell and the Stanguelini Efac SP5601 Fiat of Rene Philippe Faure and George Guyot, all of which crashed out of the race at exactly the same spot on the track within an hour of each-other.
The photo measures some 18 x 24 cm or 7 x 9.5 inches.
It is in decent condition.
The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Nr 5 Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.
