This poster is part of the so-called "Modern Photographic Approach" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1964 - 1971.
The basis of the 1965 Le Mans poster is a photograph, taken by Le Mans photographer Andre Delourmel, of the start of the 1964 running of the Le Mans race with the field storming towards the famous Dunlop curve. The colors of the photograph were heavily touched up for use on the poster.
