In case it needed mentioning that a blowout is the Le Mans racer's most dreaded occurance (after cataclysmic lift). The YouTube machine brings us a short clip of the fate that befell Yann Clairay in the Ford-powered #37 Courage C65 he shared with fellow Frenchmen, Patrice Roussel and Didier Andr . Not even the historic powder blue and orange Gulf livery of the Paul Belmondo Racing car could save Clairay, as a blowout sent him spinning into a wall, trailing debris and stripping off the car's body panels, leaving a sad chassis by the time it came to rest. And in better times.
