I’m moving house shortly and am planning a garage project with a Le Mans theme.

My plan is to have a wall mural at the back of the garage - about 10ft wide by 8ft tall. I’m a huge Le Mans fan so I want an atmospheric Le Mans shot for the mural.

I’m no photographer, I’ve searched online and can’t find anything to my liking!

The kind of photo I’m looking for would be a shot up the main straight from the Ford Chicane exit with various classes of car in it, or a sunset shot at Arnage, or a shot of glowing brakes at Mulsanne corner .... something like that.

If any PHers have something suitable please could you upload them here? I would ultimately need a high res version as it’ll become a large image and I am of course happy to pay for the right photo.

Thanks in advance beer

Mine won't be the best but is this perhaps the style you are looking for? I do not have many of pit straight, but plenty of Mulsanne bend and Indianapolis.

Thanks all, I’ll give them all some consideration and look forward to bringing a bit of Le Mans up to North West England! Happy memories every time I go in the garage 👍🏼

Bit late to this but have a look through some of my galleries - you may find something that fits the bill:

If there's nothing there, have a trawl through my Flickr site and let me know if there's something there.

This was something I saw recently and looks something like what you describe.

Perhaps you could use photo's of a favourite Le Mans area .. mine would be Indianapolis corner ..

Did you find a suitable design. Would love to see the finished result.

Not the greatest picture of our TV room mural, but we're very happy with it!! It's not that dark in situ, just how the photo has come out

Of this picture



Not my picture, but a guy called Paul Williams @pcwilliams on twitter

Took me a while to realize that's a window and not a reflection..

That’s brilliant, thank you. I’m moving into the property in a few weeks, few jobs on the house first then I’ll start the garage project and will be in touch.

Once it’s all done I’ll put some pictures up on this thread.

I've been trying to get the pictures you've described ever since I started going to le mans! Below are a few, but probably not what you are after.





If you don't find anything here, I recommend having a look at some of the picture libraries.

Otherwise I'm sure someone like Drew Gibson must have something like what you after, he has some awesome shots. Check out the second image in the wec gallery below.

James Calvert has a stunning shot on his website too.

I don't think people realise how difficult some of these photos are. You've got the limited public access, and after a few Kronenbergs, everything's moving. Every now and again you get a gem

If any of my old shots are any use, let me know. That's all the excuse I need to spam the thread anyway. I've tried to pick ones which could not have been taken anywhere else!
