The 1981 Le Mans poster is part of the "The star car used for sponsorship" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1981 to 1997.
On the 1981 poster, the track has virtually been eliminated leaving space for a car that had not won the race the previous year, the WM P79/80 Peugeot of Ecurie WM Esso, driven by Guy Frequelin and Roger Dorchy who finished 4th overall in 1980.
This poster is an outspoken example of a "sponsored Le Mans poster".
The newspaper Le Parisien had replaced TF1 as partner in de media coverage of the race, hence their logo on the poster.
The race was won by Jacky Ickx & Derek Bell in their Nr 11 Porsche 936/81 with a total of 354 laps to their name.
