1970 24 Hours of Le Mans Posters and Memorabilia
Vintage 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours Race Poster.
June 13 & 14, 1970.
It measures approximately:60 x 40 cm23.5 x 15.5 inches
This poster is in near mint condition for its age and has been professionally linen-back to preserve it.
This poster is part of the so-called "Modern Photographic Approach" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1964 - 1971.
The 1970 Le Mans poster is based on a photograph by Le Mans photographer Andre Delourmel of the start of the 1969 edition.
Layout and production of the poster were in the hands of Imprimerie Oberthur.
The unusual photo was taken trackside in 1969, only a few seconds after the start. The number 12 Porsche 917 was the most powerful car ever entered at Le Mans until then. The driver puts down the power and smokes the tires as the brute speeds away in a perfectly controlled slide.
The race was won by Richard Attwood & Hans Herrmann in their Porsche 917K (S/N 023) with a total of 343 laps to their name.
For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1970.

Vintage 1970 24 Heures du Mans Race Decal.
Original car sticker for the 1970 running of the 24 Heures du Mans.
This decal is made to be an "inside window sticker" and is transparent. It is printed in "mirror script" so that when it is stuck to the inside of a window, the outside will show the correct image.
We are showing two images of this decal, one with the brown background which is what you will get when you buy this item. The brown background is caused by the paper covering the adhesive layer and which will be removed when you apply the sticker. The image with the white background shows what this sticker looks like when it is applied to a window (we played some digital imaging tricks to present you that image).
It measures some 4 x 8.5 inches or 10 x 21 cm.
The race itself was won by Richard Attwood & Hans Herrmann in their Nr 23 Porsche 917K (S/N 023) with a total of 343 laps to their name.
Only a few available.
