LE MANS #14

Vicente Miranda, um dos nossos ombudsman do boteco, é fã de carterinha dos carros ingleses, Aston Martin, Lister-Jaguar e Tojeiro-Jaguar. Afirma que ainda vai ao Baco Central, arranjar algum e colocar uma dessas baratas na sua garagem, fazendo par ao seu MG B Roadster, que na edição de 1965 das 24 Horas de Le Mans, fez voltas a 100 mph de média, como mesmo afirma. E como frequentador assíduo do boteco vamos brindá-lo com esses vídeos! Valeu Vicente pelo carinho…e vamos acompanhar a prova e torcer pelo Aston Martin!

    Obrigado Saloma,

    Mas ainda não consegui videos dos MGB Roadstre em Le Mans 1965. Mas vale o presente de ver o Rover-BRM a turbina pilotado por Graham Hill e o jovem Jackie Stewart.

    Mais detalhes sobre a performance do carro na prova:

    1965 Le Mans

    The 1964 engine was now used to race in anger. Rather than running as an “experimental”, it was numbered “31” and was a competitor against others in the 2 litre class. The fuel allowance was also now the same as for the piston cars, making the regenerators even more important. Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart were to drive.

    Allegedly owing to sand from the side of the course being sucked in when Graham Hill ran wide early on, the turbine blades were damaged. The engine began to overheat and for the rest of the race had to be monitored carefully to ensure that the exhaust gas temperature wasn’t exceeded. Some hours later, while Stewart was driving, the tip of a turbine blade broke off and damaged one of the regenerators with a massive explosion, although the engine kept on running.

    The car performed well though, finishing tenth overall, seventh in the prototype class, and the first British car. The average speed was slightly lower than previously at 98.8 mph but consumption had fallen in half to 13.51 mpg.
