Exoto #: RLG18046
The 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 34th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on June 18 and 19, 1966. It was also the seventh round of the World Sportscar Championship. Ford quickly signed Mark Donohue to drive one of their GT-40 MK II race cars by the Holman & Moody racing team, who would partner with Australian Paul Hawkins. After a series of unfortunate problems with the car, the rear bodywork flew off and into the trees, which resulted in the officials disqualifying the Ford. After much convincing, Donohue was allowed to recover the tail section and continue racing. The piece was wired into place but after all of this and the heroic efforts put forth, Donohue and Hawkins only completed twelve laps and finished a disappointing 51st.
