EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative black-and-white photograph captures the raw energy and excitement of the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans, an iconic endurance race held at the Circuit de la Sarthe in France. The image, taken by renowned motorsport photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch, perfectly encapsulates the frenetic start of the race. As the clock strikes the hour, the drivers, dressed in their iconic racing gear, are seen sprinting towards their cars, each one determined to secure the best possible starting position. The atmosphere is electric, with the roar of revving engines and the cacophony of crowds cheering in the background. The tension in the air is palpable, as the drivers know that every second counts in this grueling 24-hour race. The photograph not only showcases the raw power and speed of the cars, but also the unwavering determination and grit of the drivers. The image transports us back in time to an era when motorsport was all about the thrill of the race and the pursuit of victory at any cost. The 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans was a pivotal moment in motorsport history, with Ferrari and Ford battling it out for supremacy. In the end, Ford emerged victorious, with their Ford GT40 Mk. II taking the checkered flag. This photograph is a testament to the enduring legacy of this iconic race and the indomitable spirit of the drivers who continue to push the limits of what is possible on the track.
