On the 29th of September in 1968, a piece of racing history was written in Le Mans, with the first victory of a racing car in the legendary GULF colors. Many should follow in the next few years as we all know, but the first time is always the most beautiful.
The new 2018 Grandprix Originals’ collection is all about the 50th anniversary and it is a homage to this memorable day and victory. The orange horseshoes had been glued on the green-colored GT 40 with the chassis number 1075 by the John Wyer team as a talisman. And it did its job and brought the victory to Pedro Rodriguez and Lucien Bianchi.
GPO’s new “1st Victory” collection is as big and extensive as ever – almost 100 styles are now available online in our 3 stores in Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Düsseldorf.
