Vintage 1952 Le Mans Program Booklet

Vintage 1952 Le Mans Race Program.

Decent condition for its age with some visible wear & tear to the cover (see pictures).

The design of the 1952 program cover came from world-renowned motorsport artist Geo Ham who opted for the symbolic approach. The place is the the Esses with the major contenders (Jaguar, Aston Martin and Cunningham) storming towards the Tertre Rouge turn in controlled slides...

The race was won by Herrmann Lang and Fritz Riess in their Mercedes Benz 300 SL with a total of 277 laps to their name.

Vintage 1954 Photo of Ferrari 375 Plus S/N 0396AM, victorious at the 24 Heures du Mans.

This is a vintage 1954 photo of the Ferrari 375 Plus of Froilan Gonzales and Maurice Trintignant at the finish of the 1954 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The duo raked up 302 laps or a royal 4,016 kms, 1 lap ahead of Tony Rolt and Duncan Hamilton in their D-Type Jaguar.

The car now seems to reside in France after a rebody following the horrendous crash of Jack McAfee and Ford Robinson during the 1954 running of the Carrera Panamericana in which Robinson got killed.

This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

The photo measures some 8.5 x 11 inches and is in mint condition and carries NO photographer's stamp on the back.

Only 1 available.

Vintage Original 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans Program Autographed by Peter Collins and Ken Wharton.

Here we have a VERY special 1956 Le Mans program...

Apart from being quite a rarity in its own right, this one was signed on the cover by racing greats Peter Collins and Ken Wharton!

Peter Collins (1931 - 1958) was teamed up with Sterling Moss and the duo drove their Ecurie Ecosse entered Aston-Martin DB3 S to a second place overall, a mere 1 lap behind the winning Jaguar D-Type of Ron Flockhart and Ninian Sanderson.
Peter signed the cover in pencil.

Ken Wharton (1916 - 1957) was teamed up with Jack Fairman in a works Jaguar D-Type but unfortunately, he never got to drive it in the race as Jack crashed the car already in lap 3...
Ken signed the cover in blue ballpoint.

Neither of these two men would survive this race for more than 2,5 years and both would get killed in a Ferrari...

The booklet measures some 13 x 23.5 cm and contains 188 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.

It does have a fair amount of wear and tear, as can be seen in the photos, and yes, it would have been a lot more expensive if it was in mint condition...

The race was won by Ron Flockhart and Ninian Sanderson in their Jaguar D-Type with a total of 300 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1956.

Vintage Original 1961 Le Mans Flyer

Vintage 1961 Le Mans Handbill / Flyer.

These flyers were handed out at the race to spectators to show them around the track.

Very scarce as most of them were tossed away after the race or disappeared into the mists of time.

The cover matches the image of the 1961 race poster which is after a color illustration which was 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.

Mint condition.

It measures 5.4 x 8.4 inches and unfolds to 21.6 x 8.4 inches.

The race was won by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien in their Ferrari 250 TRI/61 (S/N 0794TR) with a total of 333 laps to their name.
