The GT40 is a high performance American-British endurance racing car, designed and built in England (Mk I, Mk II, and Mk III) and powered by a series of American-built engines. They were built to directly compete with the might of the Ferrari - the GT40 won Le Mons 4 consecutive times.
The 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 37th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 14 and 15 June 1969. It was the last event with the traditional Le Mans-style start, in which the drivers run across the track to enter their cars, as safety belts were now in use, which usually are strapped tight by mechanics.
