1970 24 Hours of Le Mans, once again Porsche had a dominant year in the championship and arrived as strong favourites to get their first outright victory. Heavy rain through most of the race neutralised much of the Ferrari main opposition power and contributed to a number of serious accidents. In a race of heavy attrition where only seven cars were classified as finishers it was won by race veteran Hans Herrmann and co-driver Richard Attwood.

This was the year that Hollywood came to Le Mans. The race provided the background for the Steve McQueen movie Le Mans. Much of the racing footage of the motion picture was taken from on board a competing car, as the #29 Porsche 908/02 had been fitted with movie cameras.


This impressive 1/12 scale (approx 35cm long) Minichamps is hand signed by both winning drivers and comes boxed with COA.
