Product Description

This poster depicts the classic first lap pass in the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1970 where Vic Elford in the #25 Porsche Salzburg 917LH drafted around Jo Siffert in the #20 Gulf 917K, then pulled away down the Mulsanne Straight. This move was reenacted in the film “Le Mans,” with Porsche factory driver Herbert Linge in the 917LH and Steve McQueen in the 917K. The photograph of the interior of the 917 was taken at the Porsche factory museum in Stuttgart. The Mulsanne Straight with the Gulf Porsche 917K, on the right through the windshield, is from the film “Le Mans.” Combined, they reflect what Vic Elford and Kurt Ahrens would have seen.
