The 1990 Le Mans poster is part of the "The star car used for sponsorship" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1981 to 1997.
Design of the 1990 Le Mans poster was again in the hands of the S. Conseil agency and is based on a color photograph of one of the Nissan R89 C's during practice.
This poster, which did not innovate in terms of graphics, is interesting from a symbolic point of view as it shows the rise in power of the Japanese makes which in 1990 were still very much outsiders at Le Mans.
The race was won by John Nielsen, Price Cobb and Martin Brundle in their Nr 3 Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-12 with a total of 359 laps to their name.

This poster will be shipped, rolled, in a sturdy tube.
