1973 24 Hours of Le Mans Posters and Memorabilia
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 print-shop 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 paper-clips 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.

Vintage 1973 24 Hours of Le Mans Silk Scarf
Vintage June 1973 photograph of a hectic pitstop of Ferrari Daytona Competizione S/N 14407 during the 1973 running of the 24 heures du Mans.
The car, driven by Jean-Claude Guérie and Cyril Grandet, was entered by the Shark Racing Team from France.
The car had to abandon in lap 174, 17 hours into the race, with gearbox problems.
The car, which has a very extensive racing history (amongst others 3 Le Mans entries and 3 Tour de France entries) survives to this day and seems to reside in an important Ferrari collection in The Netherlands.
The photograph is in near mint condition with only some very slight knocks to the corners.
It measures some 24 x 17,5 cm or 9 x 7 inches and is glossy black & white. It carries the photographer's stamp on the back.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.
