It’s four o’clock on a Sunday in the middle of June right now, but today is not just another day of miserable heat and stubborn bees looking for a rush. No, it is four o’clock on Sunday, June the 16th and, by my book at least, that means it is officially Le Mans Week.
And in honor of the week which leads up to the greatest event on the motorsport calendar, FTT will be posting new videos every day to get your nerves amped for the one and only 24 Hours of Le Mans.
We start today with a brilliant 50-minute short documentary about how the Le Mans 24 Hour race came into being, and also how it evolved throughout the decades. It’s a must-watch video, and certainly something to watch as we approach the 2013 edition of the greatest endurance race in the world.
