3 More LeMans Films 53, 61 & 65

Postby TsgtRet » Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:44 pm

Found these on Youtube. The 53 is done by Jaguar, 61 by Triumph and 65 has a Triumph "slant". I think these are so cool because all we ever see are either our models running around the track or still photos. Note the change over the years from "shirtsleeves" to drivers suits. Also, there are quite a few "politically incorrect" (by today's standards) comments made by the narrators! The 1961 Triumphs were called TRS, kind of the competition transition from the TR3 to the TR4. The 1965s were Spitfires not GT6s.

Bibbster, in the 65 film watch for the #39 MGB....look familiar?
