Polo of the brand GrandPrix Originals Gulf 69 Cobalt Blue. A polo from the collection of the German brand wishing to highlight the second victory of the Gulf livery in 1969. A polo made of 65% cotton and 35% polyester. This car clothing takes the cobalt blue and orange colors, two emblematic colors of the motor sport because they are those of the oil tanker Gulf. Indeed, this t-shirt is a piece of history. It has small details reminding the car history. Like the Gulf crest on the left chest, the " 69 " crest on the right chest or the number 9 of the Ford GT40, flocked on the left shoulder.
When was the famous "Départ Du Mans" stopped?
The starting procedure at the 24 Hours of Le Mans required the drivers to run across the track to join their car at the starting line. The aim was to make the start of the race more spectacular. However, this start was the cause of many accidents because drivers preferred not to wear their seatbelts to be better classified. It was during the 1969 edition that Jacky Ickx, driving a Ford GT40 in Gulf livery, boycotted the procedure and walked across the track. The most important thing is that this did not prevent him from winning the race by a nose in front of Hans Herrmann. Thanks to this protest, the FIA decided to change this rule
In order to pay tribute to this historic edition, GrandPrix Originals has released a special 1969 collection. A collection which includes this cobalt blue Gulf polo. A polo shirt that takes up the emblematic Gulf colours with the cobalt blue and the orange reminding the livery of 1969 with which Jacky Ickx won his first 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The first of the six he would win as he made automotive history. This polo shirt is, like all GrandPrix Originals products, high quality products with nods to the world of motoring. It is a polo shirt made by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts!
