Scrutineering was moved from the Place des Jacobins in Le Mans city to the circuit. Finally, this year the ACO trialled a new IBM race-timing computer system (which had a few teething problems
Information from 1961 le mans
I've been told by Lee Holman that he made his own on car lap counter/computer using a 9 volt battery to power it and by the early 60's IBM had introduced a race lap computer. Question is..... is there any photos of either one?
18 years ago there was a question asked on what to do with the large gap between the top of the Radiator and underside of front nose clamshell? Not any good answers so time to revisit. Did original cars have the same void and what does their fix look like?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks. I guess I was looking specifically as in that back in the day I've seen race cars were just shot with lacquer and left alone (Grand Sports) others were just sprayed then polished, while others were sprayed, sanded....then polished.
There is a lot of info on exterior paint codes and if it was lacquer. But my question is on the originals at the time they were painted in the mid 60's, was it shot and left alone or was it color sanded or simply buffed out and was it just one heavy coat?
Looking for images of the two panels forward of the front wheels and behind the headlights, specifically for a mk2 (if its different from mki) Photos of the panels are rare and some have bump to clear headlight connector.
