1949 French GP at Reims poster – Grand Prix de France, Reims
This vintage original poster features lovely period artwork by Jean des Gachons which is very reminiscent of the Geo Ham era. The large poster is in very good ‘A’ condition, linen mounted (acid-free cotton rag), and measures 4 feet wide (47×31″). The artwork features a stylized Talbot being chased by a Maserati 4CLT. This stunning poster is very rare and has been tastefully framed.
This race was won by Louis Chiron in the Talbot Lago T26, followed by Prince Bira in the Maserati 4CLT/48 & Peter Whitehead in the Ferrari 125. Other notable drivers include Villoresi, Ascari, Fangio & de Graffenried.
