Some very interesting highlights and the strategies used by Jacky Ickx
to defeat the main rival Porsche. This must have been the most exciting 24 ever to witness.
Enjoy the read, truly remarkable
victory.

I think this is still the closest competitive finish in the history of Le Mans.

Nah, that would be Ford vs. Ford vs. Ford in 1966--no knew which Ford won until well after the race was over!

My fave was the LMP1 4 years ago when the leading Toyota just. Stopped. On the last lap! The looks on the faces of the Toyota execs and crew were heartbreaking.
