July 1968 - The French Grand Prix succeeds the ACF Grand Prix on the famous circuit of Rouen-Les Essarts. The program is ambitious with the races of R8 Gordini, Formula France, F3 and F1. Unpublished documents, testimonies, never released photos shed a new light on this race weekend mixed with joy and tears. Hear the roar of the V12s and the blaze of the V8s, meet Rindt, Stewart, Hill, Brabham, Ickx, Rodriguez, Beltoise or Schlesser and let yourself be carried away by the story of this Grand Prix.
The story of a race – A race in history
This book is part of a new collection of books that unveils « freeze-frames » from the great movie of motor racing history. Its purpose is to explore a particular weekend, the choice of which depends above all on the authors’ ability to gather the most original and complete documentation possible: photos, plans, programs, drawings, period reports and testimonies.
All the historical disciplines are likely to be approached: F1, F2, F3, FJ, FF, sport-prototypes, GT, touring, cups of mark, rally, etc. If the program includes other events of a different nature (motorcycling, cycling…), they are reported with the same concern for precision.
The considerable preparatory work required to produce such works means that each author has had to rely on other contributors to benefit from the pooling of personal networks and rare documentary resources. It is thanks to their remarkable collaborative spirit that this project was possible.
