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 LITEUL TOURIST TROPHY 1/2 ( video officielle moto journal)
Le petit Tourist Trophy 1/2 ( video officielle moto journal )
Quand on parle de courses sur route, tout le monde pense forcément
"Tourist Trophy". Pourtant, au fin fond de l'Irlande, il existe un
championnat complet de courses sur route. Qu'il pleuve ou qu'il vente,
d'hallucinants héros s'affrontent en paquet sur d'improbables routes de
campagne, bien plus défoncées et étroites que celles du Tourist Trophy.
La WebTV Moto Journal est allé assister à deux de ces courses, premier
reportage sur la Bush, la plus petite et la plus jeune course de ce
championnat hors du temps.
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.
