This trilogy of books contains a remarkable collection of models which is the property of the N Collection and comprises every single car that raced at Le Mans between 1949 and 2009 – over 3,000 cars.
Here, for the first time, one can see and compare all the various makes and models, from the famous to the obscure. Not only are there three views of every model, but the salient facts are given as to who drove each car, whom the entrant was and how each performed.
These books are a fascinating record of how the Le Mans cars evolved through the decades. Even for expert enthusiasts there are a few surprises lurking in here.
Furthermore, the books celebrate and pay tribute to a great model car enthusiast, the late-Mr. Ron Pegg, who spent a lifetime creating these models and this remarkable collection.
