As a tribute to le Mans pilote Pierre Levegh I have commissioned a painting by the great motorsport artist Uli Ehret. The painting will be on display at Uli's stand at Le Mans this weekend. It depicts Levegh in his Talbot at the 1952 le mans  (A race he nearly won single handedly leading by 4 laps from the Mercedes only for the car to break down with less than an hour to go) He is also depicted in the Mercedes in 1955 a race he would not finish. The works drive given to him by Alfred Nuebauer after his 1952 exploits. The painting is titled SO NEAR YET SO FAR. If you get the chance pop by and say hello.
