Description

Officially licensed with the ACO, the organisers of the annual Le Mans 24 Hours race, this sumptuous book will be the first in a decade-by-decade series that will eventually build up into an eight-volume set covering every race since 1923. Each year will be exhaustively covered in vivid photographs, a detailed race account, full results data and a glorious rendering of the official race poster. Compiled by an acknowledged authority of this legendary race, this series of books will be treasured by all enthusiasts of sports car racing.

Table of Contents

The book provides highly detailed year-by-year coverage of the decade's ten races, giving over 30 pages of information and photographs for each year. Official status provides a number of unique features, including the reproduction of the full-colour race poster artwork for each year. The images include a considerable proportion of rare colour, and the emphasis is on photographs that enthusiasts will not have seen before. The story of each race is told through photographs and an accompanying commentary. Complete data for each year includes technical regulations, entry list, circuit changes (with diagram), lap chart, full results and category awards. The whole work is beautifully designed and presented.
