Video: Le Mans 1977 Onboard

Submitted by on December 2, 2008

ickx4There is nothing quite like the 24 hours of Le Mans. This video reminds us why.

Having been to the race in both 1993 and 2000 I just cant get enough of the history and excitement that surrounds this awesome event.

Standing in the forest next to the guardrail on the Mulsanne straight at 1am while the cars scream past at close to 400kp/h is absolutely unforgettable!

In this video Jurgen Barth takes us for a flying lap in the Martini Racing Porsche 936 Spyder.

This car went on to take overall victory in the hands of Le Mans legend Jacky Ickx, American Hurley Haywood and German driver Jurgen Barth.

The win gave Ickx his fourth Le Mans win and a famous¬†“hat trick” ¬†having also won the ’75 and ’76 event.

Hold on tight!
