EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the thrilling moment of victory for Auguste Bucquet at the Paris-Vienne Race on 15 May 1902. Bucquet, a skilled racer, is seen triumphantly crossing the finish line on his Werner motorcycle, marking a significant milestone in the early history of motor racing. The backdrop of the image is a hoarding from the Michelin Building in Fulham Road, London, displaying the iconic Michelin tire slogan, "Michelin tyres drink the obstacles." The 19th century was a pivotal time in the development of transportation, with the advent of pneumatic, inflated rubber tires revolutionizing the way vehicles moved on roads. Michelin, a pioneering company in tire manufacturing, was at the forefront of this innovation. The Michelin Brothers, André and Édouard, had established the Michelin Tire Company in 1889 and were constantly pushing the boundaries of tire technology. The Paris-Vienne Race was a crucial event in the motorsport calendar, and the use of Michelin tires on Bucquet's motorcycle underscores the importance of the partnership between the racer and the tire manufacturer. The determination and urgency displayed by Bucquet as he crosses the finish line symbolize the spirit of innovation and competition that characterized this era. The ceramic tile picture, a testament to the rich history of Michelin and its role in the development of motor racing, adds an intriguing layer to this image. The tiles, adorned with the Michelin logo and the slogan, "Michelin tyres drink the obstacles," emphasize the tire's ability to overcome the challenges of the road. This photograph is a fascinating glimpse into the past, showcasing the early days of motor racing and the crucial role that Michelin played in shaping the industry. The image exudes a sense of movement, teamwork, and the spirit of competition that continues to drive the world of motorsport to this day.
