1959 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster REPRODUCTION

1959 Le Mans Race Poster REPRODUCTION.

June 20 & 21, 1959.

It measures approximately:
16 x 22 inches
40 x 56 cm

The 1959 Le Mans poster is 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 Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The design of the 1959 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his second work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.

Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to this relatively new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.

The drivers running towards their cars in the typical Le Mans start with the international flag flying over the pit box building. With a little good will, one can see a Ferrari and a Jaguar ready to be taken to the tarmac by their sprinting drivers.

The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Nr 5 Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1959.

Vintage 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans Ticket Stub for Re Entry to Balcony and Pits Area

Vintage 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans Ticket Stub for Re Entry to the balcony and pits area (or "Balcon et les Enceintes des Ravitaillements" in correct French).

June 20 and 21, 1959.

This is a vintage & original ticket sub (re-entrance ticket) that gave access to the balcony above the pits and the pits area itself during the 1959 running of the 24 Heures du Mans.

Good condition for its age but is has of course been used and is over half a century old!

The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Nr 5 Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1959.

This ticket stub is VERY scarce.

Vintage Original 1960 24 Heures du Mans Poster Department of Transportation.

1960 Le Mans multicolor tourist advertising poster with photo by Yves Debraine, France, using the same artwork at that year's official event poster.

This poster was published by the French Government's office of Transportation and Tourism.

It features the start of the 1959 race with all the cars coming onto the course with the grandstands and pits filled to capacity.

Despite not being the event's poster, this poster is actually at least as scarce as, or even scarcer than the event poster and should not be missing in any serious Le Mans collection.

Measures approximately:
16 x 23 inches
41 x 58 cm

More than excellent condition for its age with some minute fraying at the top and bottom which only adds to the fantastic patina of this poster.

The race was won by Paul Frère and Olivier Gendebien in their Nr 11 Ferrari 250 TR 59/60 S/N 0774TR with a total of 314 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1960.
