24 Hours of Le Mans: 1934

Last Edit: 27/07/2020

 

The 1934 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 12th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 16 and 17 June 1934. The first women to finish were Dorothy Champney and Kay Petre who were 13th overall in a Riley.

Where we have not had a model of the car as raced through the business I've added another example of the car as an illustration (where I have one)
