Les 24 Heures du Mans

Classic Sports Car - - Books -

Henri Béroul was a keen am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher, suc­cess­fully run­ning his cam­era shop in the cen­tre of Le Mans and gain­ing an ac­cess-all-ar­eas me­dia pass for 30 years of the 24 Hours race, from 1949. Each year he took be­hind-the-scenes pho­tos, which made his store a Mecca for lo­cal mo­tor­sport en­thu­si­asts to view his in­ti­mate car and driver im­ages. Al­most 35 years after Béroul’s death, his son Joël has com­piled this ex­cep­tional, pre­vi­ously un­pub­lished Le Mans pho­to­graphic col­lec­tion, cov­er­ing the le­gendary 1950s to ’80s era over 192 pages. It’s French lan­guage only, but fea­tures a wealth of both fa­mil­iar and oft-for­got­ten cars, plus the men who raced them, mak­ing it a visual treat for any fans of Le Mans and rarely-seen com­pe­ti­tion cars.
