Vintage 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans Ticket for the Signaling Post at Mulsanne corner.
In the days before on-board radios, the team managers relayed their orders to the drivers via signaling boards at Mulsanne corner, which was about half way through a lap.
Those orders were relayed to personnel at Mulsanne by landline telephone. The guys at Mulsanne then put the "orders" on the signaling boards (for example: slow, fast, pits, fuel etc" and held the boards in plain view of the drivers right after Mulsanne corner.
Mulsanne corner was an excellent place to do this as it was about halfway through the lap which gave team management ampel time to consider what orders to give, allow the boards to be "dressed" with the right instructions and Mulsanne was about the slowest part of the track, giving the drivers good opportunity to clearly read the signs.
This particular ticket was worn by one the guys at Mulsanne Signaling Post on June 25 and 26 1960 during the running of Les 24 heures du Mans and therewith a rare and very collectible piece of Le Mans memorabilia.
