|24 Hrs Of Le Mans - 1950's and 1960's (Vol 1)
|After the formation of the World Sportscar Championship in 1953, of which Le Mans was a part, Ferrari,
Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, and many others began sending multiple cars backed by their
respective factories to compete for overall wins against their competitors. Their competition sometimes
resulted in tragedy, as in an accident during the 1955 race in which Pierre Levegh's car crashed into a crowd
of spectators, killing more than 80 people. The incident led to the widespread introduction of safety measures,
not only at the circuit but elsewhere in the motorsports world. However, even though the safety standards
improved, so did the speed of the cars; the move from open-cockpit roadsters to closed-cockpit coupes
resulted in speeds of over 320 kilometres per hour (200 mph) on the Mulsanne. Race cars of the time were
still mostly based on production road cars, but by the end of the 1960s, Ford had entered the picture with
their GT40s, taking four straight wins before the era of production-based wins came to a close.
