Mike Hawthorn

Mike hawthorn, winner of the ill-fated ’55 24 Hours of Le Mans and 1958 Formula One World Champion, takes us for a lap of the ’56 Le Mans circuit in a beautiful Jaguar D-Type.

Complete with his wonderful commentary, bicycle and traffic dodging, and the ever present sound of that tremendous straight-six, it’s a brilliant watch.
