    Apologies, I only got your comment when I was at the event. I don’t suppose it will make you feel better to know that it was a really good event. I will be posting all the photos and a review later this week so keep following.

    On a better note for you, I still have some tickets available for this weekends EcoVelocity event which should be good, and eye opening. Let me know if these would interest you or friends, spread the word. Click here for more information on our EcoVelocity competition.

    Hey John,

    Have to agree these are some exectionally beautiful cars, but what about:

    1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
    Torrential downpours, not to mention the death of a French driver, marred the race in 1958. Still, fans were treated to a wonderful sight: the American Phil Hill’s now-legendary performance, in which he drove on the ragged edge at night in the rain with no roof in this red shock of an automobile. The Testa Rossa (“red head” in Italian) is still today one of the most famous Ferraris. The bodywork was designed for Ferrari by Carrozzeria Scaglietti. It charioted Mr. Hill to a Le Mans championship that year, making him the first American to earn such honors. Since it rained for some 20 of the 24 hours, its average speed of 106.2 mph was miraculous.

    1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR
    “The 300 SLR was as giant an advance in racecar design as the WWII Messerschmitt 262 jet fighter was in aircraft evolution,” wrote John Fitch, the only American Mercedes factory driver during the 1950s. Unfortunately, Fitch’s teammate Pierre Levegh was the infamous soul who crashed his SLR into the crowd at Le Mans in 1955, killing scores and ending the company’s campaign. Decades later this racer, which is on display at Mercedes’ Stuttgart museum, is still an icon. The lengthy bullet-like nose was designed to hold the straight 3.0 liter eight-cylinder engine and the car was the first at Le Mans with fuel injection. Top whack exceeded 185 mph.

    1934 Alfa Romeo 8C
    Alfa Romeo was in such financial turmoil during the 1930s, the Italian government took over the factory in order to save it. If it were not for the publicity gained by the manufacturer’s Le Mans dynasty from 1931-1934, the company probably wouldn’t exist today.

    Chalk up the victories to the genius of the team’s young racing manager, Enzo Ferrari (who called Le Mans “the Race of Truth” and would go on to launch his own company after World War II) and a brilliant pilot named Luigi Chinetti, who won in 1934 in a beautiful 8C (meaning eight cylinders). The car’s average speed over 24 hours: 74.7 mph.

    I could keep on going, I’ve also left out the awesome Porsche 917.

    Will.

    My three cars would be:

    Aston Martin DB4 Zagato
    Ferrari 250 GTO
    Ford GT40

    All wonderful cars, if only I were a billionaire, then they would grace my car garage.

    John
