Le Mans - 1969 - John Woolfe fatal crash

Soon after the start the poor handling of the 917 and the inexperience of the driver resulted in a drama: the death of British driver John Woolfe on lap 1 when his private Porsche 917 crashed at Maison Blanche. Woolfe was killed, probably due the fact that he had not bothered to put on his safety belt. This was likely done because of the style of the traditional start used at Le Mans until that year, in which drivers were required to run across the track to their cars, climb in and get it started as quickly as possible to pull away from the grid. Woolfe likely sacrificed strapping his safety belts in order to gain a better start. The nearly full fuel tank from Woolfe's car became dislodged and landed in front of the oncoming Ferrari 312P of Chris Amon. Amon ran over it, causing it to explode under his car, which led to his retirement. The race was stopped for 2 hours due to these two first lap incidents, but was eventually restarted.

9 Days in Summer (full)
Courtesy of Mike Banks "One of, if not the classic motorsport film Nine Days in Summer is the definitive story of the development of an iconic racing car and record-breaking engine. Design guru Colin Chapman and engine supremo Keith Duckworth came together to produce the now legendary Lotus 49, powered by the fabled Ford DFV which would go on to become the most successful engine in Formula One history. The car went from concept to racetrack in just months and, amazingly, was victorious on four occasions during the 1967 Grand Prix season, including its debut. Nine Days in Summer, introduced by motorsport expert Simon Taylor, charts this extraordinary achievement in comprehensive detail. Incredible full-colour race action from nine Formula One rounds combines with fascinating footage of Cosworth and Lotus craftsmen painstakingly creating these stunning examples of automotive art. The film also allows you unprecedented access to Chapman, Duckworth and legendary drivers Jim Clark and Graham Hill. Nine Days of Summer, from the Ford Archive Gems series, is the ultimate guide to the creation of a motorsport icon and a milestone in motorsport film-making."

A Le Mans' Hero: Porsche 917 - PURE RACECAR SOUNDS
When you think about racecars and Le Mans, you probably think about this: the Porsche 917. You used to see this monster in videogames but in my video you can finally see how it looks like in real world! I'm proud to host on my channel this proper Le Mans hero, a Porsche 917/k to be precise. The history of this incredible machine is way too long to be reported here so I'll link its Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_917 I'll then stick to what it's like to see such a monster in real world; it's just amazing: the car is lower than anything else, the sound it produces is nearly disturbing due to its loudness! I cannot imagine what was like to race at Le Mans or at the Nurburgring in one of these... Enjoy this piece of automotive history! Don't forget to subscribe to my channel! Carlo





La carrera de la muerte - Le Mans del 11 de junio de 1955
La tragedia de las 24 horas de Le Mans. 11 de junio de 1955 en el circuito de la Sarthe. Murió el piloto Pierre Levegh y 82 espectadores. Documental acerca de la trágica catástrofe de Le Mans 1955. The History Channel. A las seis y media de la tarde (hora local GMT+1) el Mercedes 300 SLR conducido por la pareja Juan Manuel Fangio -- Stirling Moss luchaba por encabezar la prueba con el Jaguar conducido por Mike Hawthorn - Ivor Bueb tras haber conseguido sacar una vuelta a la mayor parte de sus rivales. Hawthorn en plena lucha con Juan Manuel Fangio, adelantó a un Austin Haeley, conducido por el piloto británico Lance Macklin, a la entrada de la línea derecha de las tribunas pero, de repente, frenó y decide entrar a los boxes. Sorprendido, el piloto del bólido que acababa de ser doblado hizo una brusca maniobra hacia la izquierda sin ver que dos Mercedes, a toda velocidad, se le echaban encima. El primero lo conducía el francés Pierre Levegh, con una vuelta de retraso y el segundo El Chueco Fangio. El drama se produjo en tan sólo unos pocos segundos. En un último acto reflejo, Levegh levantó la mano para advertir a Fangio del peligro. Después, chocó contra el Austin y, a más de 200 kilómetros por hora, su Mercedes "despegó" para abatirse, explotando, sobre las tribunas repletas de espectadores. El Mercedes de Pierre Levegh se desintegró totalmente, el motor y otras piezas del chasis dejaron un rastro de muertos y heridos en su vuelo sobre las tribunas, incluyendo al propio Levegh cuyo cuerpo quedó tendido sobre la pista. Entre los motivos de la fuerte deflagración se encuentra el hecho de que muchas partes del vehículo estaban compuestas de magnesio, que genera una fuerte explosión y dificulta las labores de extinción, dado que el agua actúa como potenciador de las llamas. Los organizadores de la prueba, sin embargo, no interrumpieron la carrera, que prosiguió mientras las ambulancias iban y venían. Los espectadores situados en otras zonas del circuito tardaron horas en conocer el alcance de la tragedia. La organización argumentó que la suspensión de la carrera hubiera dificultado las labores de evacuación de los heridos, por la probable invasión de las vías de emergencia. Pierre Levegh contaba con 49 años de edad en el momento de su muerte. Durante la noche, el equipo Mercedes Benz, que encabezaba las 24 Horas, decidió retirarse de la carrera, por orden explícita de la sede central de la marca en Stuttgart. Al día siguiente, bajo una fría lluvia y un ambiente aún más glacial, Hawthorn y Bueb lograron para Jaguar su tercera victoria en Le Mans. La retirada de Mercedes de las competiciones automovilísticas se prolongó hasta el año 1987. Dos días después, las autoridades galas prohibieron las competiciones automovilísticas en Francia. En Alemania, España y Suiza siguieron el ejemplo francés y suspendieron sus Grandes Premios, para evitar que se repitiera una tragedia que conmocionó a Europa y al resto del mundo. El accidente contribuyó de forma clara a cambiar las políticas acerca de la aceptación del peligro en las carreras de automovilismo y a la exigencia de más seguridad en las carreras, tanto para los competidores como para los espectadores, por ejemplo, en 1955 los automóviles de carreras no contaban con cinturones de seguridad, los pilotos decían que no querían estar atados al auto en caso de incendio ya que no contaban con uniformes antifuego con tela Nomex. Los cascos posteriormente cubrirían toda la cabeza de los corredores.

This Porsche 917-025 was built for Porsche AG as a long-tail version. In 1970 was converted into a 917 "K" (K stay for Kurzheck, "short" in german), painted in white with blue stripes and sold to Team Zitro, from Switzerland. The car is moved by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine which can produce 580hp at 8300 rpm and it's able to reach a top speed over 350 km/h (220 mph).
