LE MANS SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE

With their 935 models selling by the dozens Kremer looked to spend their funds on a new project. The company discovered a loophole in the regulations that would allow a machine such as the old 917 to run once again. Enthused by the idea they set out to buy and modify a chassis to compete in the 1981 Le Mans 24 Hours.
The car’s tube frame chassis was re-engineered and strengthened and a brand new body was fitted. Other than the structural and aerodynamic changes, the car was basically the same as it had been in the early 1970’s. It still carried the 5L 912 air-cooled flat-12 engine, now producing around 570 horsepower.

They cut through the beating heart of the circuit and chopped the Mulsanne

Straight into three.

So they demolished the beautiful old pits and built modern new stands.

The Dunlop curve was made into a chicane.


Carnage was reaped as the delightful atmospheric woods at the Esses sawn down!

At the Fair Ground the Freaks were forcibly evicted along with the Snake Lady and the Strippers.

On the camping grounds marked pitches were measured up and sold like plots of land!

But somethings never change! This is 1963 behind the main ACO Grandstand and it is still there and the same today. Oh how I love Le Mans!
