24h-Race Le Mans
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the most legendary endurance races for sports cars.
The race has been held annually since 1923 by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest on the Circuit des 24 Heures near the city of Le Mans, although the current course has only existed since 1932. The 13.88 km long circuit is best known for its long straight, the "Ligne Droite des Hunaudières", on which speeds of up to 400 km/h were reached.
The race caused a sensation until the late 1960s with its special "Le Mans Start", where the drivers had to sprint across the track to their cars lined up in front of the pit lane. The 24h of Le Mans also achieved great fame outside the motorsport scene, not least through the 1971 feature film "Le Mans" starring Steve McQueen.
A special fan collection has now been dedicated to this legendary race, which includes clothing items such as T-shirts, polo shirts and caps as well as various accessories such as bags, posters and stickers.
