Every car guy knows Le Mans, its history and its traditions, but how many of them actually know the Circuit de la Sarthe? And how many of them know the many configurations of the track over the years? Fortunately, we recently came across this first-person, driver-narrated video of Mike Hawthorne running a Jaguar over the course in 1956 over at IEDEI. While he doesn’t specifically mention the infamous tragedy from the year before, you can tell it’s foremost in his mind as he frequently mentions minor changes made to the course in the name of safety. For those of you who want to follow along on a map, the Chicane also recently posted a map of the 1955 Circuit de la Sarthe.
