    - If you're able to provide some info with your post relating to the drivers and placement in the race outcome, all the better. Here is a good weblink for historical Le Mans info

The same car, but this time in 1/18, by autoART:

Of course everybody has already seen pictures of it, but I kind of liked this perspective...

Bizarre : Chevron-Ford B16 #49 - Skailes / Hine

The car was still running at the end, but, hadn't covered enough distance to be classified



Bizarre : Matra-Simca MS 650 (#30) & MS 660 (#31)

Both Matras (along with the team #32) retired in the 7th hour with defective piston rings. Transporter by Spark



M4 : Alfa Romeo 33.3 #35 - Stommelen / Nanni Galli

The fastest of the four Alfas entered - it was disqualified when running in 6th overall



Spark : Porsche 917K #20, #21 & #22 Gulf Team entries

Not a good race for the Gulf Team - all three cars retired. The #20 of Siffert / Redman had led for several hours - it had dropped to 4th place when the engine let go in the 12th hour.



At the end, it was a Porsche 1-2-3



Autoart 917K #23 1st, Minichamps 917L #3 2nd & 908 Spider #27 3rd
