Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a whole year before we’ll see any vintage action on the historic circuit, and so we’re making do with onboards from previous races.
And one such clip hails from 2018, and allows us to climb aboard Antoine Vandromme’s 1981 Porsche 935, competing in Grid 6, for cars dating from 1972-’81. With a near-empty track ahead of him he hammers around the 8.5-mile circuit, occasionally closing on or being overtaking by opponents (there’s a lovely Ferrari 512 BB LM at about 1:40).
The Porsche’s pace is hardly surprising, given that in period it won more than 150 races, including the 1979 Le Mans 24 Hours, plus six victories at both the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours.
