Fifty-three years after the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, that running of the race is back in the headlines. American director James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) has immortalised the extraordinary duel between Ford and Ferrari in the film Le Mans 66 (Ford v Ferrari in the U.S.). Matt Damon and Christian Bale play legendary driver/engineer Carroll Shelby and British driver Ken Miles, respectively.
Extremely well-received at its screening two weeks ago at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, "Le Mans 66" will hit theaters in the U.K. on 15 November.
