Track Map of the Past: LeMans ’55
Approximate translation: The facilities at the circuit Le Mans (13 km long) are improving year by year. The organizers have planned this time new facilities in the village, creating a tunnel 10 meters wide giving access on the road from Tours, speakers, fueling and a new garage for 2,000 cars. The Mulsanne Straight (which allows higher speeds) was also the subject of complete refurbishment.
(Feel free to correct my translation—this was mostly Google Translate)
It was the Hunaudiéres straight who was refurbished, not Mulsanne, which is a right turn, at the end of the said straight. 🙂
yes, when this bad habit to call the mulsanne straight..instead, it should be called ” THE HUNAUDIERES STRAIGHT” .
True. Nonetheless, even the drivers call it the Mulsanne straight and everyone has since at least the first post-war event.
Nuts about C and D-type Jaguars – so much so that I formed The Jaguar C type Club in 2011
