Mike Parkes Ferrari Memorabilia
Vintage 1961 Le Mans Handbill / Flyer.
These flyers were handed out at the race to spectators to show them around the track.
Very scarce as most of them were tossed away after the race or disappeared into the mists of time.
The cover matches the image of the 1961 race poster which is after a color illustration which was part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Michel Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.
The poster shows a fantastic image, by Michel Beligond, of the # 12 Ferrari 250 TRI/60 powering its way out of the Esses and heading towards Tertre Rouge during the previous edition in 1960.
The combination of warm colors represents the arrival of dusk, highlighting the red Ferrari in the center of the poster. This year, 1961, the race was part of the Sports Car World Championship.
It measures 5.4 x 8.4 inches and unfolds to 21.6 x 8.4 inches.
The race was won by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien in their Ferrari 250 TRI/61 (S/N 0794TR) with a total of 333 laps to their name.
