1994 Jean-Pierre Malcher Used Team Synergic Bugatti Le Mans Suit
Stand 21 race suit used by French sportscar driver Jean-Pierre Malcher. The suit was used while Malcher drove a Bugatti EB110 in the preliminary practice and qualifying sessions for the 1994 Le Mans 24 Hour race. French media mogul Michel Hommell entered his Team Synergic EB110 GT for the 1994 event and Malcher, along with co-driver Eric Helary, posted the fifth quickest time overall in the GT1 class. For reasons unknown, Malcher did not join the team for the actual race, where the Bugatti was running with the leaders until the Sunday morning of the race when a tire failure on the Mulsanne Straight saw the car crash out after 230 laps.
This all-blue suit has many sponsor/supplier branding logos adorning the front, back and arms of the suit including Manoir, JVC, Auto Hebdo and Esso to name a few. There is a Bugatti oval patch on the right chest and J.P. Malcher’s name embroidered to the waist belt.
The suit comes directly from the personal collection of the former North America President of the Stand 21 Racewear Company, Phillipe de Lespinay.
The suit comes with a full Certificate Of Authenticity.
