Vintage 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans Group S Scrutineering Sticker

Vintage 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans Group S Scrutineering Sticker.

This is an original 1975 scrutineering sticker for a Le Mans Group S car.

Group S in 1975 was the Sports class for cars with an engine displacement of over 2000 cc.

These stickers were stuck onto the cars after they had passed the rigorous scrutineering before being allowed to race at Le Mans.

New-old-stock rescued from the print shop that printed these for the race organization in 1975, hence new and unused.

It measures some 30 x 13 cm.

Perfectly suited to give your car that period touch or as a display item amongst your Le Mans scale models!

The race was won by Jackie Ickx and Derek Bell in their Nr 11 Gulf Mirage Gr. 8 with a total of 336 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1975.
