Some 24h le mans and GT40 history.

The NorCal dude from Belgium
Year : 1969
Place : Le Mans France

Due to many safety issues at the typical 24h le mans start , Belgium F1 pilot , Jacky Ickx made a statement and "walked" to his race car , No6 GT40 , left the start position last and 24h later finished first.
He was the first one to point out safety issues to the organisation which Jacky Stewart also did later on in the F1 organisation.

6 times Le Mans Winner , Jacky Ickx , aka Mister Le Mans.


Thats the guy. Belgiums Living Legend Jacky Ickx.

Saw it 1.5 weeks ago, and we sat in the "D-Box" seats that shake, pitch, and roll - fun! The movie was pretty good. I really liked Bale's performance. I also recommend watching the 2-hour "Shelby American" documentary on Netflix.

I just went to see Ford vs Ferrari today.
I thought it was very well done.

However it did make me miss my dad a lot.

Yeah even that V12 Ferrari had the V8 sound...oops

I have a poster framed from the 2003 Monterey Historic Races on the wall in our living room. It shows the three GT40s at the finish line at LeMans 1969. Just love those GT40s

Just saw Ford vs. ferrari last night. I give it 5 stars out of 5. Best car/race movie I have ever seen. But no mention of the current Ford GT winning LeMans 2016?
