This is the new Three Pedals + Liberté t-shirt, we’ve taken the national motto of France “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” and added the word “Vélocité” which means “Velocity” or “Speed” as an homage to the many remarkable contributions the French have made to the world of motorsports.
The three pedals to the left are presented in the colors of the French flag, and the design is available on t-shirt colors that include dark heather grey, black, charcoal, turquoise, and kelly green.
Although France is often overlooked in favour of countries like Italy, Germany, Britain, and the United States, the French have been responsible for some of the most significant races, racing drivers, and automobile marques in the world.
From the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Bol d’Or motorcycle endurance race to automobile marques like Bugatti, Alpine, Citroën, Peugeot, Renault, Ligier, Venturi, and many others. There have been countless top flight French racing drivers, not to mention Formula One and other top level racing teams.
The motto “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” first appeared during the French Revolution as a symbol of an ideal society, it was later adopted as the official national motto and it remains a strong influence on French culture and society to this day.
