  • Description

    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for "Le Mans Special" - they may relate to Colour Pictorial item called "Twenty-Four Hours at Le Mans" or a documentary called "Twenty-Four Hours to History" - see other records. Pathe seem to have shot enough footage to make both the documentary and the Pictorial item.

    Filmed 15 and 16 June 1963.

    Various shots of cars speeding around a track during the Le Mans car race. The chequered flag is held up. No 26 Ferrari 250GTO LMB co-driven by Masten Gregory and David Piper reverses after crashing into a sand bank. Number 15, the Jaguar E-Type lightweight co-driven by Briggs S Cunningham and Bob Grossman, passes the camera with the front crumpled after a collision. Spectators watch the race. Man uses shovel to dig his car out of a sand bank. Various shots of cars zooming past the camera. C/Us of Ludovico Scarfiotti in a red neckerchief. Various cars are seen coming in for pit stops. Petrol is put into one of the cars. Driver takes off again.

    Night shots of the race - can't see much except headlights.

    Spectators on the stands. More shots of the cars.

    Some of the footage appears to be too fast - possibly filmed this way to give impression of high speed.

    Other cars identifiable during the clip include:

    No 41 is a Rene Bonnet Aerodjet.
    Car 00 is the Rover-BRM co-driven by Graham Hill and Richie Ginther.
    No 23 is a Ferrari 250P, co-driven by John Surtees and Willy Mairesse.
    Car 22 is another Ferrari 250P.
    No 50 is an Alpine M63
    No 53 is a Rene Bonnet Aerodjet LM6.
    No 21 is a Ferrari 250P (and the eventual winning car).
    No 25 is a Ferrari 250GTO.
    No 24 is a Ferrari 250GTO.
    No 3 is an AC Cobra.
    No 38 is a Lotus Elite Mark 14.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
