The 1982 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 1982 poster, the atmosphere is dictated by the omnipresent Gitanes cigarette advertising, both on a billboard along the track as well as on the car.
The design and color illustration are by the Publi-Inter agency and probably date from early 1982.
The illustration represents the night with the Ford C100, highly favored for the 1982 overall victory, on the track.
The RTL radio station, key partner in the creation of the Le Mans 24 Hours for Trucks in 1981 is now also present to cover the normal 24 Hours race, hence their logo on the poster.
The race was won by Jacky Ickx & Derek Bell in their # 1 Porsche 956 with a total of 359 laps to their name.
