Video: 1970 LeMans 24 Hour

This recently restored short film showing the 1970 24 Hours of LeMans was originally footage shot for use in a documentary. It takes an epic period look at the race which was ultimately won by the Porsche 917 driven by Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood. When we watch it we imagine a more free time before huge corporate sponsorship took over and made it so highly competitive that it is now unheard of for teams to share tools or all grab a friendly dinner together after the race. Times change, but at least we have films like this to help remind us of the way it was…
