Le Mans fans, you now have a very unique opportunity to own an incredible piece of memorabilia from the 76th edition of the world’s greatest endurance race. Marc Gené’s race suit from the classic 2008 Le Mans 24 Hours is now for sale!

Description

Gene’s race suit from the 24 Hours of Le Mans is fitted with all of the Peugeot team’s branding and their sponsors logos. A few battle scars and scuffs can also be seen on the suit, proving that this is a genuine piece of history that is not to be missed out on.

History

Marc Gené is a very well-respected racing driver who has competed in multiple disciplines from sportscar racing to Formula 1. Whilst serving as Ferrari’s Formula 1 test driver, Gene was able to serve as a full-time driver to the Peugeot Le Mans program.

In 2008, Marc Gené was a part of the second year of Peugeot’s LMP1 attack on the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race, but his assault didn’t start well though. The Spaniard endured a scary accident at the Porsche Curves during the test week that saw his Peugeot 908 HDI FAP Diesel get airborne and hit the barriers during the test week. Gene walked away virtually unscathed and was cleared to race the rest of the week.

The 2008 Le Mans 24 Hours will go down in history as one of the most entertaining editions of the race as Audi and Peugeot endured a titanic battle that went all the way down to the wire. Gené and his teammates Jacques Villeneuve (1997 Formula 1 World Champion) and Nicolas Minassian were the main challengers for the race win but in the end, they came a close second to the Audi Sport Team Joest #2 car of Tom Kristensen, Ronaldo “Dindo” Cappello and Alan McNish after the French team made a mistake regarding their choice of tyres in the final stages of the race.
