EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic print captured by David Phipps, we are transported back to the thrilling conclusion of the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans at Circuit de la Sarthe in France. The image showcases a heart-stopping moment as Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon, driving for Shelby American Inc. , Ford Mk II, lead their rivals Ken Miles and Denis Hulme in another Shelby American Inc. Ford Mk II, along with Ronnie Bucknum and Richard Hutcherson from Holman & Moody in their own Ford Mk II, across the finish line. The intensity of the race is palpable as these three powerful machines vie for victory. With dust kicked up behind them and engines roaring, they push themselves to the limit on this legendary circuit. As they approach the chequered flag signaling triumph after an arduous 24-hour battle against time and competitors alike, one can almost feel their adrenaline-fueled determination. This photograph not only captures a pivotal moment in motorsport history but also encapsulates the spirit of endurance racing – teamwork, skillful driving, and unwavering perseverance. It serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and mechanical excellence that define such races. David Phipps' masterful composition freezes this exhilarating instant forever; it immortalizes these fearless drivers who pushed boundaries while etching their names into racing folklore. This print is more than just an image; it's a gateway to reliving one of motorsport's most memorable moments
