Uli´s Racing Legends Le Mans 2014

Dear Friends! Dear Collectors!

What a magnificient 91st edition of the 24 Hours race 2014!

 

The race in LMP1 class, but also in LMP2 and GTE was just fascinating and exciting.

Though our stand was open from saturday 9 am until sunday 2 am I managed to get to the race track until 4 am sunday morning.

 

What I witnessed was the best race night I had seen for many years. The Corvette #74 was trying hard to catch the Ferrari 51 from AF Corse for the lead in GTE. In LMP1 the Toyota was leading for a long time - until Audi took the lead - but only to give the lead to Porsche when Audi #1 got in minor troubles. What a pity for Porsche #20 to give up this lead in the garage just two hours before the end of the race.

 

However - well done Audi - no victory is easy at the Sarthe. Every victory is well deserved.

What a battle at the Sarthe!

 

But also - what a remarkable saturday night for me. I slowly wandered down the pit lane straight, enjoyed the view from the Audi terrace, tried to follow the race with the infos from the screens and the Michelin tower, and near the Ford chicanes you are only five meters away from the Bernhards, Webbers, Gavins, Magnussens and Fässlers of this incredible race night. As a guest of IMSA Performance Porsche #76 and #67 in their pits at night I could see the fight going on. Thanks to Jean-Christophe and Anne-Lise ! The excitement peaked when the cars came in for a pit stop. I will never forget these moments.

Back in the stand 5 hours later on sunday 9 am, it was fantastic to see, that we sold out all smaller reproductions and many medium sized canvas and framed reproductions.

Thanks to some of my collectors there were amazing sales of originals to tell too: The Ayrton Senna painting, displaying the McLaren F1 from 1988 in the Monaco Harbour chicane went to a collector - as well as the Bentley Speed 8 LMP1 from 2001. A painting which I like very much (#68).

 

The Maserati A6 GCS from Juan Manuel Fangio at Targa Florio original was sold to a wonderful french friend (#369), and also the painting called "Stampede" (#441), signed by all Aston Martin pilots in 2013 went to a new home - in the UK. Concerning the latest Le Mans 24H paintings, the "Jagdfieber" painting with the Porsche 919s in second chicane at Le Mans was sold to a dutch collector and friend, while the Audi R18 from 2014 at night (#503) was sold - no wonder - it was honoured with the wonderful signatures of all nine Audi pilots surrounding this original. A so far unpublished motor bike painting "Red 12" went to the UK to one of my best collectors.

 

We gave 2500 of the latest catalogues to our visitors. So what else can I say than "thank you so very much" for all your support and the amazing number of visitors at my stand.

 

Thank you so much to my friends Daniel and Daniel, Dorrit an Katharina, Allan and Stéphanie, Hervé and Lise, Witney and Tobias, Christopher and Hansi, Andrea and Jonas. Many special thanks to Olivier and Anni-Claude for the magic tuesday evening and the great dinner with Jean-Marie, Juliette and Carol. Thank you so much to my good friends Geoff and Jane, Graham and Tom, Joe and family and so many good friends and collectors from all over this motorsport planet to say hello again and join us for a while at our stand!

 

It was again a magic event.

Unforgettable - the rest is waiting ...

 

See you at Le Mans Classic !!!
