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.

1991 Luigi Chinetti 90th Birthday Menu Ferrari 670/91

This menu was issued on July 17, 1991 to celebrate the 90th birthday of Ferrari Legend Luigi Chinetti. Apart from building the Ferrari sales in North America, Chinetti Sr. is also renowned for winning the 1949 Le mans 24 Hr. almost single-handedly (the front page of the menu shows that feat) and for establishing the N.A.R.T.

Ferrari decided to "throw a party" for Chinetti in Modena at "Ristorante Laura" and this menu was used at the dinner.

It measures approximately 11.5 x 8.25 inches and folds open to double that size.

A truly rare piece.

Ferrari Print # 670/91.
