an English racing driver, world champion in the 1958 Formula 1 season and
winner of the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1955.The British was also involved in
the crash that killed 80 spectators at the 1955 edition of the 24 Hours of
Le Mans, known as the "Le Mans disaster." It was the most tragic accident
in motor racing history but, despite its size, the race was not suspended,
which allowed him to claim victory at the wheel of his Jaguar.

TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 - Battle of Giants
Once again, the roads near the French city of Le Mans will turn in a
circuit of a special kind. For the 91st time, known greats of the
motorsport scene meet to show their skills at the famous 24-hour race of Le
Mans. At least since the 70´s the endurance race enjoys cult status. With
the flair of yesterday and the technical state of today, the race offers an
unbeatable mix of adrenaline, excitement and an unique atmosphere.
2011 Peugeot 908 LMP1 PURE SOUND!! Test at Monza 24h Le Mans 2011
Today I've recorded a test at Monza Circuit (Italy) of the new Peugeot 908
for 2011 LMP championship. The track has been wetted by a special water
tank. The car hasn't got the racing livery. You can see that there are a
lot of new aerodynamic parts like a large engine air-intake mounted on top
of the engine cover, the fin on the engine cover or the rear wing mounted
on a twin 'swan-neck' supports. The engine is a 3700cc V8 turbocharged diesel engine.
The sound is quite different from the old V12 turbodiesel engine and this V8 sounds a bit more
noisy (good thing that :) ).
Porsche 956 - Le Mans - On Board
956 - thanks for the comment, corrected the title from 917 to 956, i guess
it's true no 917 coupe was ever turbo.
Also the 917 had a peculiar cockpit with the main gauges elevated in a
separated encasing behind the steering wheel.
