Listen Along with the 1964 24 Hours of LeMans

Sound Stories 24 Heures du MansThrow on your headphones and close your eyes. You’re about to be transported to 1964 to follow along with the highlights of the 24 Heures du Mans.

I can imagine the fun it would have been in the era before modern sports television coverage to lie down on the living room floor, throw this on the turntable and listen to Pedro Rodriguez, Graham Hill, and Dan Gurney turning the keys and pushing the start buttons of their Ferrari 330Ps, 275Ps, Porsche 904s, and Shelby Cobra Daytonas. This race was also the 24 Hours’ debut of the GT40.

I won’t spoil the fun of the audio here by telling you the race results. Enjoy.
