Home Movies from LeMans. 1970.

Have I told you lately how much I love it when people digitize their old 8mm footage of races? Just look at the clips from the pits of the Hippie 917 with its cover still sitting on it carelessly. Just look at the Ferraris being lowered from the truck. Just look at the sheer madness of the flares on the class winning Greder/Rouget Corvette.

Just. look. at. it. And that’s all before the opening parade.

I’m sort of surprised that Wes Anderson hasn’t bitten this dude’s lap update compositions.
