Spirit of Le Mans
by Nicholas Watts
Luigi Chinetti's second victory at Le Mans in 1934 was notable for his outstanding driving and his pit crew's ability to produce chewing gum on demand to stem the flow of fuel from a fractured petrol tank. Driving an Alfa 8c 2300 with Philip Etancelin, it was to be Alfa's final victory at Le Mans. The image depicts Chinetti leading an Aston Martin Ulster and a Lagonda through Tertre Rouge.
