This Is As Close As It Gets To Watching Steve McQueen’s ‘Le Mans’ In Real Time

For many, the best way to rewind the clocks and experience the drama of racing in the 1960 and ‘70s is to sit down for a viewing of Steve McQueen’s Le Mans. If you haven’t already seen it then you are certainly missing out on some of the very best views of motorsport from the time, especially considering a material amount of it was shot during the race itself. Although it is hardly a film that captivates with its incredible storyline or deeply realized characters, it has a simple and more effective mandate: depict racing in its true form.

60's best was Grand Prix (have in several formats). Plot a bit corny now (& before flappy paddles) but on-car cameras were very good.
