Officially licensed with the ACO, the organizers of the annual Le Mans 24 Hours race, this sumptuous book is the third title in a decade-by-decade series that will eventually build up into an eight-volume set covering every race since 1923. Each year is exhaustively covered in vivid photographs, a detailed and insightful commentary, full results data and a glorious rendering of the official race poster. Compiled by an acknowledged authority of this legendary race, this series of books will be treasured by all enthusiasts of sports car racing.

A past editor of Autosport, the world's top motorsports weekly, Quentin Spurring has a long-held passion for the Le Mans 24 Hours – he has reported from the race 26 times – and is the ideal author for this series of officially endorsed books. As well as his four previous books in this Le Mans series, he has written books about Jim Clark, Gilles Villeneuve and Ronnie Peterson, and his book Grand Prix: Images of the First 100 Years, from David Bull Publishing, won an award from the American Publishers Association (APA). He has been the European Motorsport Correspondent of the US publication, AutoWeek, since 1982.
