The infamous 1954 Le Mans 24 Hour race was recreated in 24 minutes at this Demo Day Event. With more twists and turns than the actual track, this epic race inspired generations of drivers. Five cars from the collection were featured, but only one took home the checkered flag. The featured cars were the 1954 Ferrari 375 MM, the 1956 Jaguar D-Type, the 1952 Cunningham C4-R, the 1954 Austin Healey 100-4 BN1, and the 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe.
