Vintage 1931 24 Hours of Le Mans Contender's Package

SPECTACULAR Vintage 1931 24 Hours of Le Mans Contender's Package.

Extremely rare and basically museum material!

This is a virtually complete package as you would have gotten for the 1931 24 Heures du Mans or 9th Grand Prix d'Endurance de 24 Heures Coupe Rudge-Whitworth as it was officially called back in 1931.

Not exactly in dream condition but then again, it is over 80 years old and even rarer than the programme booklet for this year.

Although the exact provenance is unknown to us, we found notes, drawings and "greasy thumbprints" throughout this package that hint at some serious attempts to enter a car for this race.

In total, this set consists of the following:

  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Rules Book of 18 pages with the front cover detached and the rear cover missing. Dated December 1, 1930
  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Rules Annexe 2 of 4 pages, dated February 28, 1931
  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Rules Annexe 3 of 4 pages, dated June 5, 1931
  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Scutineering Form, dated June 11, 1931
  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Flyer for race days June 13 and 14, 1931. Contains a track map, seating plan for the main grandstands, records and entry list, ticket prices and forthcoming events at the Circuit de Dieppe in the north-west of France
  • The 1931 24 Heures du Mans Bareme de Vitesse, the Lap Times sheet with conversion into average speeds in KM/H (for a track length of 16.360 KM) and total number of laps converted into total distance

An incredible package from the very early days of Endurance racing. If you're interested in this item, we don't need to explain to you how rare (have you even ever seen one of these items before?) this set is...

The race was won by Lord Howe and Tim Birkin in their Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 LM with a total of 3017 km to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1931.

Only 1 set available.

We are inviting serious offers on this set through info@experiencelemans.com.

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham.

This book, issued in 1949 by the A.C.O. (organizing body of the 24 Heures du Mans), if often considered as THE prized possession for serious Le Mans collectors.

This is one of the VERY few surviving NUMBERED copies!

As a matter of fact, this number 528 of the 1000 numbered copies that were issued.

VERY scarce as in our 15+ years of trading Le Mans memorabilia, this is the very first one we ever managed to source!

We are very proud to be able to offer for sale this book which survives in excellent condition for this book despite its slightly weak binding.

Being a BIG book, some 25 x 32 cm or 10 x 13 inches and 471 pages (it is some 6 cm or 2.5 inches thick!) it is a very detailed account of the 24 Hours races as held in the pre WW2 era (1923 - 1939) including stats and reports on the drivers with countless illustrations and portraits by the fantastic artist, Geo Ham (Georges Hamel).

Please note that this numbered edition is actually THICKER than the "regular" version despite having the exact same contents and same number of pages.

Very, VERY scarce and an absolute "must have" for the endearing Le Mans collector!

Only 1 available of course !
