Le Mans 1955: The Animated Short Film About One of the Darkest Days in Motorsports History | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on May 13, 2021, 8:09 a.m.

1955 would go down in history as one of the deadliest runnings of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in history after the No. 20 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, piloted by Pierre Levegh, catapulted over an earthen embankment and into a crowd of spectators.

More than 80 of those spectators were killed, with some 180 more injured in the accident. Levegh died instantly when he was ejected from the car.

This animated short film details the events leading up to the accident, as well as the aftermath–including the race official’s decision to continue the event, as well as Mercedes-Benz’s eventual withdrawal.

The Post-War Beetles Built for the British Army | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on May 10, 2021, 8:12 a.m.

Following the end of the Second World War, the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg (renamed from "City of the Strength Through Joy Car at Fallersleben") was handed over to the British after it was captured by the American Army.

The story goes that the bombed-out factory was to be dismantled and sent to the United Kingdom, but after it was clear that no one wanted it, the factory stayed put.

Instead, the British reestablished production of the Beetle–then called the Type 1–which not only supplied jobs to the local German population but also much-needed vehicles for the occupying British Army.

This video from 1946 shows some of those first post-war British Army Beetles rolling off the production line and promptly being put through their paces.
