Jean Guichet Ferrari Memorabilia
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.
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.

It measures some 21 x 27 cm and counts 112 pages which are filled to the brim with information on the cars, the race and of course great period advertising.
The booklets also served as a ticket in the grand prize draw and, consequently, they were individually numbered with this being number 009204 but it might be a little late to claim your prize now...
It is in very good condition for its age and carries some notes on the individual contenders on the lap sheet.
