    Journey to LeMans
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6aC10LQVfU



    The 24 hours of Le Mans is the greatest endurance motorsport event in the world. Fantelli Productions follows British privateer team Jota, taking an intimate look at the limits of human endurance and the level of engineering it takes to compete in the most challenging motor race in the world. Narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, Journey to Le Mans brings to life the passion, hard work and dedication that drive this small team to compete on the world’s stage against the biggest names in motorsport. The first time 44-year-old Simon Dolan sat in a racing seat, he vowed there and then that nothing would stop him from winning at Le Mans. Joining Dolan is young driver Harry Tincknell, dubbed the next big thing in motorsport, and protégé of world champion Allan McNish. Tincknell, under the watchful eye of his famous mentor, has the opportunity to prove himself as he takes the seat for Jota. Team manager Sam, and trainers Pete Webster and ‘Mike the Bastard’ all push the drivers and engineers past physical and mental exhaustion to be the best they can be – fit enough to withstand the grueling, sleep depriving, life changing Le Mans. Journey to Le Mans follows this small British privateer team as they prepare themselves for the experience of a lifetime. Facing a mountain of challenges as they compete in the LMP2 class - when one small error can mean the difference between winning and losing - will they pull off the near impossible and take home the trophy?

    1985 Le Mans

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOJPqc1NSSc

    The 1985 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 53rd Grand Prix of Endurance as well as the fourth round of the 1985 World Endurance Championship. It took place at the Circuit de la Sarthe, France, on 15 and 16 June 1985.

    During Thursday's practice, Briton driver Dudley Wood in a John Fitzpatrick entered Porsche 962C tangled with the Swiss driver Jean-Pierre Frey in an Alba AR2 on the Mulsanne Straight at 200 mph (320 km/h). They crashed, and they both went over the barriers and into the trees, similar to John Sheldon's crash the year before. The impact was so hard, it even cracked the Porsche's engine. No one was killed. As a result, neither car started the race.

    During qualifying, German driver Hans-Joachim Stuck recorded the fastest ever lap of Le Mans- at an average speed of 156.471 mph (251.815 km/h).

    Klaus Ludwig took his third overall win, and his second in a row, in the same 956B chassis, 956B-117, which had won the 1984 race.

    6-time winner Jacky Ickx finished his final 24 Hours of Le Mans in 10th place.
