Vintage 1939 Le Mans 24 Hours Flyer

Vintage 1939 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 and the pre WW2 versions are even scarcer.

VERY good condition for its age with some minor browning to the edges which is normal for a colored-paper piece of over 70 years old.

It measures some 10.5 cm x 24.5 cm and unfolds to 42 x 24.5 cm.

Amongst others, it shows the seating arrangements on the main grandstands, an aerial view of the main facilities, a list of the 50 participants, a track map and a price list for all the different tickets, garages (parkings) and camp sites.

The illustration on the front page follows that of the program booklet and it is generally attributed to Andre Galland who drew a good number of covers in the pre-war era but given the fact that this illustration is not signed "A.G.", but simply "E.", this must be a different illustrator. The illustration on the program cover does not show this simple signature which could be the source of the confusion.

The 1939 edition was the very last pre WW2 24 Heures du Mans and it was won by Jean-Pierre Wimille and Pierre Veyron (yes, this is the man after whom Bugatti named the Veyron!) in their Bugatti Type 57 C Tank with a total of 3354 KM to their name.

A great document that is VERY, VERY rare (the very first one that we have ever had or even seen).

The insides gives introduction on ticket prices and a plan of the grandstands while the back shows a great pits scene.

Good condition for its age but some minor, age-related, yellowing due to the nature of the paper.

The cover follows the design of the 1972 poster which shows the return of an abstract drawing, by J. Jacquelin, uses the new section of the track between Arnage and the grandstands.

This was the result of the organiser' determination to cut out the Maison Blanche corners that had become too dangerous due to the increase in performance and speed of the cars.

In 1969, British driver John Wolfe had lost his life on that section of the track in his nr. 10 Porsche 917.
