Haller dug up this gem from the depths of the YouTube mines last night and was kind enough to share it. And it's a freakin' doozy. Mike Hawthorn, who died in a Jaguar nicknamed "The Merceater," takes us on a guided tour of the Le Mans circuit circa 1956 in a D-Type. The clip also features errant oncoming cars and slow-moving motorcycles. This, friends, may well be the genesis of today's in-car cameras, but instead of excitable former racers re-living their glory days adding commentary, we've got a driver in his prime narrating as he rounds the circuit. We're betting one could weave a very nice metaphorical rug from Hawthorn's metaphorical chest hair.
