Thank Frankel it's Friday: When Britain and Europe worked together to conquer the greatest race

Hate to bring the ‘B’-word into a column such as this, but the whole Brexit debate has made me think back to happier times of co-operation between the UK and our European chums. And I am reminded of one of the extraordinary stories in racing, one which came about through an Anglo-German alliance (forged in America oddly enough) that resulted in a five-year-old car winning Le Mans, despite the fact it wasn’t meant to be there, and then exactly the same car doing it all over again under very different circumstances the following year.
