where cars go to die …

a scene of the 1966 24 Heures du Mans you won’t see often, the car park for race abandonments

we can make out the Holman & Moody Ford GT40 MkII of Mario Andretti &  Lucien Bianchi (n°6, retired due to an engine failure), the Matra-BRM M620 of Jo Schlesser & Alan Rees (n°41, retired due to an accident), the Chaparral-Chevrolet 2D of Jo Bonnier & Phil Hill (n°9, retirement due to an electrical failure) & in the background the Societé Automobiles CD-Peugeot SP66 of Pierre Lelong & Alain Bertaut (n°52, retired due to a clutch malfunction)
