1972 24 Hours of Le Mans Posters and Memorabilia
Vintage 1972 Le Mans Pre-Race Flyer Handbill.
These flyers were handed out at the race to spectators to show them around the track.
Scarce as most of them did not survive the race.
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.
Excellent condition for its age.
It measures 5.4 x 8.4 inches and unfolds to 21.6 x 8.4 inches.
The 1972 race was won by Henri Pescarolo & Graham Hill in their # 15 Matra Simca MS670 with a total of 344 laps to their name.
