    LE MANS 1955 - Deadly Competition.

    Animated short film by Q. Baillieux - HD (full movie).

    Interesting animation technique on difficult subject, very well done.

    Not the real story, but an emotional subject, for sure.

    I don't think it was an attempt to be a documentary.

    But they sure made it look like one and it was a fantasy. The real story would have been no more difficult to tell and is far more interesting.


    1955 was the deadliest year in auto racing history. Thank God we have not repeated it.

    I want my MTV. Love to see a version of the 1969 24.

    The whole thing did seem rather pointless.
