Le Mans ’77


We’re suckers for onboard footage. And if this footage is from the days before modern tech took all the fun out of it, then so much more the better. We reckon this sort of juddery, intense photography comes closer to the  visceral experience of driving a sports car at the limit. But that’s just us. We’re kind of luddites, though we’re doing it online.

Check it out.

    OOh visceral heaven, proper seat of the pants stuff.

    Car is a Martini Racing Porsche 936

  2. Yep: the car featured is, to be exact the turbocharged Porsche 936/77 driven to victory in the 24 Heures Du Mans by German Jurgen Barth, supported by Belgian Jacky Ickx and American Hurley Haywood. Baldy, thanks for filling in the gap…
