The 2001 Le Mans poster marks the beginning of a new era in Le Mans posters which is generally referred to as "The Le Mans Poster in the era of computer graphics and sponsorship" and which lasts from 2001 until the current day.
The 2001 24 Heures du Mans poster was produced by the Archimede agency after a color illustration.
The cars as stars on the poster are back in full force while the computer graphics became more generalized and replaced photographs and hand drawings.
The names of the most famous sections of the track are highlighted for the first time in Le Mans poster history.
The race was won by Frank Biela, Emanuele Pirro & Tom Kristensen in their # 1 Audi R8-2001 with a total of 321 laps to their name.
