Le Mans Bridge

T-shirt "Le Mans Bridge": the meaning of design

Le Mans... The Man... The Machine... 24 hours... Is there another more special race? Without a doubt, the Sarthe's track holds one of the toughest races in the world of motorsports, if not the toughest. Together with the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500 it completes the Triple Crown that, up to today, has only been achieved by Graham Hill.

But above all, the 24 Hours of Le Mans are a very special race... At Le Mans, the fastest or most regular doesn't win. It is Le Mans that chooses its winners.

This legendary race has witnessed great battles and has burned the names of machines and men into history: Ferrari, Ford, Porsche, Mazda, Audi, Toyota,... Phil Hill, Graham Hill, Jacky Ickx, Tom Kristensen , Fernando Alonso,... Even famous Hollywood celebrities have been fascinated by the magic of this endurance race and have taken part in it: Steve McQueen or, recently, Michael Fassbender.

In the design of this T-shirt we wanted to represent one of the most iconic images of the Sarthe circuit: the bridge and the Dunlop Chicane. As at that point, the track draws, with some imagination, a class of 2, the design has been used to evoke the duration of this mythical race by drawing the number 24 in the colors of the French flag.
