Le Mans, instants
Texts by Jacky Ickx, preface by Pierre Neveux
The photos of this book were taken during the 24 Heures du Mans, in June 2003; a way of celebrating eighty years of this highly regarded race, and Bentley's victory.
Jacky Ickx lends his personal thoughts about the 24 Heures du Mans throughout the book; remarks collected by Pierre Neveux, who also wrote the preface.
"...To understand Le Mans, one must have a taste for detail, be a solitary adventurer, and be in constant quest of the perfect moment.
This book is a succession of these moments captured through the eye of Pierre Vallet, in black and white, punctuated by the reflexions of Jacky Ickx, six times winner of the 24 Heures du Mans.
This work is a journey into the depths of our own dreams. A nostalgic symphony..."
