1947 French GP at Reims poster.
This huge original event poster features lovely artwork by Geo Ham of the #4 Talbot-Lago race car leading the pack. This large format poster was published in very limited quantities for the 16th French GP on July 6, 1947. The poster is in A- condition with some original fold lines and creases, most of which have been drastically minimized by the linen backing. It is very large, measuring over 5 feet tall (47×63.5”) and is quite rare.
The race was won by Christian Kautz in a Maserati 4CL, followed by Louis Chiron in a Talbot-Lago 39. Fastest lap was captured by Luigi Villoresi in another Maserati 4CL.
