Dunlop have commissioned a collection of artwork to celebrate their long-standing involvement with the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Centred around a group of award-winning illustrators who have created ‘The Art of Motorsport’, it celebrates 90 years of endurance racing at the iconic La Sarthe circuit. The collection will be exhibited at the 71A gallery in Shoreditch, London, this Wednesday (23rd July).

Three artists have contributed to the exhibition, with each depicting a decade from the race's history. Telegramme focusses on the 1920s, which saw Dunlop’s first win at the event, while Timba Smits takes on the tyre manufacturer's successful outings in the 1950s.

Finally, Raid71 tackles the modern day, which marks the 90th anniversary of Dunlop’s involvement with the 24 Hours. A video preview of the exhibition can be seen below.
