Here’s fantastic video of a lap in one of my favorite all-time cars, shot in 1956. This is Mike Hawthorne who won Lemans in 1955 in a D-type. That was the race in which there was a horrific crash and many spectators were killed. The track was improved for the 1956 event but you will still see in this video quite a remarkable amount of bicycle traffic on the race course!
Check out the recording equipment… and I thought my new HD Go-Pro Hero video camera (that has been filming my recent Bugeye drives) was a bit challenging!
If you like the head fairing on this Jag, we have made a new fiberglass version that fits Bugeyes, and it is a sleek addition to a Bugeye’s rear deck. Send me an email if you are interested in purchasing one.
Enjoy this awesome drive!
