Only a few days left until the start of the race of the year, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Before the lights at Circuit de la Sarthe turn green this Saturday at 15:00 CEST its time to get you into the right mood by presenting the classic "Le Mans" movie featuring cult hero and real life racing car driver Steve McQueen. Besides the lead role for McQueen, who has surprisingly little text in this movie, the co-stars of production are the Ferrari 512s and Porsche 917s, iconic racing vehicles with tons of visual and audio appeal to racing enthusiasts. After its release in 1971 the film faced a lack of success with the general theatre public, but over time both racing and movie fans have embraced "Le Mans" for its authentic racing scenes, the iconic blue and orange gulf livery on the car of McQueen and above all the film breathes the atmosphere that fans experience when visiting the race, even today in 2014. For tonight sit back and relax and enjoy the 1 hour and 48 minutes long action packed film and make sure to share it friends that have not caught the Le Mans virus yet.
