24 hours of Le Mans
1923 - 2023 Centenary Edition
- This luxurious book of more than 360 pages is presented like an album of mostly unpublished photographs, arranged chronologically
Throughout its century of existence, every moment of Le Mans has been captured in countless photographs. From black & white to colour, these particularly vivid images bring to life a whole world: that of the cars, naturally, but also of the many human players – drivers, engineers, mechanics – and the public, always numerous and varied.
The authors summarise the moments and actions of the key characters, identifying five major periods:
1923-1929: The time of the pioneers
1930-1967: Reconstruction and globalisation
1968-1981: In search of the right solution
1982-1999: The 21st century in sight
2000-2022: A Modern Race
