Judging by the tone and by what ultimately happened over the course of the week, I'm guessing every single word that came out of Hugh's mouth that week was studiously and steadfastly ignored by the team?

In Hugh's words, at least it broke early so he could go to the pub (without the team though).

Searching back in my very distant memory ................

Didn't a certain Mr Palmer bin the Canon Porsche 962 at Mulsanne Corner on the first lap back in the '80's? Or is my memory playing tricks on me?

Yes, in 1983. But, it was the second lap and Jan Lammers was behind the wheel.

You want opening lap drama at the start of an endurance race?
Have you ever seen the start of the Nurburgring 24 hours?
160 cars in three groups, Lemans is nothing in comparison.

Hello,
This is a discussion thread about the start at le Mans. Many of us like the Nurburgring too, so I invite you to open a thread called "opening lap dramas at Nurburgring 24 hours" in the Sportscar & GT Racing level.

I seem to remember Alexander Premat crashing the R15 on the first lap in 2009 at Indianapolis while being chased by the Astons

That was on lap 3 or 4 actually.

There was also Willie Mairesse's bad crashed at Mulsanne on the first lap in 1968 that destroyed his GT40 :

In 1954, the #61 Panhard X84 of Eugène Dussous and Jacques Savoye crashed out on the first lap.I haven't been able to find any pictures of the car.

In 1966, the #10 Bizarrini spyder spun as it accelerated away from the start and found itself facing the wrong way. It could have been disastrous, but everyone avoided him:





It retired only 8 laps later with clutch failure.
