Fabulous shot of the car that finished in the closest second place ever at the 1969 Le Mans 24 Hours race.

I remember watching it live in flickering black and white on the BBC.

As I recall the lead changed twice on the last lap! (IIRC the Porsche took the lead back at the start of the Mulsanne Straight and the Ford got the lead back on the approach to Mulsanne corner, but nearly 48 years on... hazy indeed!)

One of the greatest races in the history of motor sport.

Sadly the race also included the death of John Woolfe of Woolferace Wheels. The first driver to die in a 917.
