Hi all

Motorsport TV (Motors TV) is showing the history of Le Mans from 1st January onwards.

The 1st 2 programmes details are below then it's on every night at 10pm until Monday 8th Jan.

22:00
THE GREAT HISTORY OF THE 24 HOURS OF LE MANS 1933-34
Alfa Romeo and its 8C 2300 remained the one to beat at the 1933 and 1934 24 Hours of Le Mans, but would they be able to hold off the charge of the impressive Rileys?

22:15
THE GREAT HISTORY OF THE 24 HOURS OF LE MANS 1946-51
As the Le Mans 24 Hours resumed after the Second World War, manufacturers including Ferrari, Aston Martin and Jaguar flocked to the French enduro to test their machinery against the best in the world.

Here's a link about it:

Last nights episodes were good, in black and white as you would expect but very interesting.

Tonight the focus is the 1955 race, an infamous race that had repercussions around the world.

I’ve noted the programmes get longer as series goes on, which is good.

Watching the old footage is interesting but I can’t help feel the format for this series could have been constructed a little better.

The first 2 sounded as though they were translated from French, the 3rd sounded like Mr. Cholmondley-Warner (Harry Enfield Show).

I'm hoping they'll improve as the decades move forward. biggrin

The footage is good though. smile
