Mondays Suck, So Here’s Amazing Footage Of The 1963 Le Mans
While nearly eight minutes of beautiful footage from Le Mans is worth sharing all by itself, it was wonderful to discover that the vintage newsreel, er, “cinematic journalism” provider British Pathé had uploaded much more to its YouTube Channel.
The documentary has beautiful shots, great commentary, and easily makes us nostalgic for an era we’ll never experience. But almost as compelling is the huge amount of additional, sound-less B-Roll footage that shows Le Mans from every conceivable angle.
Graham Hill cleaning his goggles? The famous running start? A man who cooked several chickens on a skewer at the fairgrounds? It’s all there.
Even though you can’t travel back in time, spend a few minutes easing into your week—we’ll forgive you for imagining you’ve just spent the weekend at Circuit de la Sarthe.
