Le Mans 24 Hours at In Focus Gallery

Beaulieu National Motor Museum, England

Up to September 1st, 2023

The Beaulieu National Motor Museum inaugurates the new gallery in Focus, a space that will host temporary exhibitions of photographs, artwork, motoring objects and memorabilia to present articles from the museum’s collection of more than 1.7 million items. Le Mans – the race of the century is the 1st exhibition of this new gallery. It celebrates the centenary of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race, with many archive photos, representing all the stages of the famous endurance race, from the sprint on the starting line to the checkered flag.

Some photos have never been exhibited, and the selected photographs include images that are fine examples of the work of Maxwell Boyd, the famous motorsport photographer of the 1950s and 60s. Note that the Le Mans exhibition will be followed in September by “The magic of the brand”, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the famous English brand MG.
