1923 Le Mans event poster – 24 Heures Du Mans, May 23rd-27th 1923 – Grand Prix d’Endurance de 24 heures / Coupé Rudge-Witworth / Automobiles Club de l’Ouest (A.C.O.)
This is an extremely rare original poster of the very first 24 hours race at Le Mans. It features lovely artwork by H.A. Volodimer and measures 22.5×34.5″. The poster in in very good A- condition. It has had minimal professional restoration and is linen mounted and still bears its original tax stamp (dated May 7, 1923)!
This race was won by a Chenard et Walcker and this same marque also took 2nd, followed by a Bignan (3rd) & a Bentley 3L (4th).
This is one of the most significant early motorsport posters, less than 8 are known to exist, and it is priced accordingly.
