Le Mans 2011 - Hunaudières
Uncut footage of the 2011 Le Mans 24 hours at the Ligne Droite des
Hunaudières - or Mulsanne Straight for our english fans.
The video was shot on saturday at around 5:45pm from a legal spot halfway
down to the first chicane.
Please excuse some shaking and the lack of editing. I did this clip in a
1972 Matra Simca MS670C Howling V12 Sound at Le Mans (Accelerations & Fast Flyby)
The howling V12 3.0 litre of the Matra MS670C driving at the legendary
circuit of Le Mans during the Le Mans Classic, the most beautiful historic
car racing event of 2014!
This car captured my attention every single time it drove by. It has a
beautiful, howling-like sound. While a lot of other cars produce a very
heavy sound, the sound of this car was very high pitched, resulting in a
sound that could be heard from hundreds of metres away! For example when
the Matra is surrounded by other cars like the Lola T70 or a bunch of
Stingrays, you hear the Lolas and the Stingrays in the beginning, but once
all the cars pull away it's the sound of the Matra that 'takes the floor'
so to speak. You just keep hearing it making its way through the woods of
So definetely one of my favorite cars of the weekend! I never ever saw this
car before in real life, or at least not driving but I wasn't surprised it
made such a beautiful sound! A sound which I'm glad I can share with you

Just some clips I took while at the 12hrs of Sebring in 2011. These cars
are so addictive. Wish I got more audio from the paddock area before the
race but I was sleeping in my car. Oh well....there is always next year.
