Le Mans 1955

The 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1955. 300,000 spectators are watching from the sidelines.

It is 6:00 PM when Pierre Levegh’s car ploughs into the spectator stands, scattering the crowd with his car engine’s hot debris.

It is a tragedy that will cost more than 80 lives. And yet, the race goes on.

At Mercedes, a friend and co-pilot of Pierre Levegh’s is ready to take the relay.

His name is John Fitch.
