Exactly what he says at the end, it WAS iconic but has been massively over done of late. Variation of it would be ok but honestly it needs a break big time. Find a new livery.

Gulf should be like, some sort of reserved livery now. You don't do it without exceptional circumstances.

Agreed. On a related note. Steve McQueen is less king of cool now as others have overdone it.

We need no one to mention of paint their cars gulf for a couple of decades and then we will be back on track.

Not sure about the comment on Steve Mcqueen, the younger generation always seem to not just know who he was but still like his irreverent style, todays stars have to be totally politically correct so can't compete.

[politics_free_post] Judging by the statistics he was a far better driver when cars were 0,1% as safe as they are now. [/politics_free_post]

Both Steve Mcqueen and Paul Newman acquitted themselves very well at le mans.

He did enter a car for the 1970 race. It finished but wasn't classified due to insufficient distance because of how frequently it had to pit, usually to change film as it was a camera car for collecting footage for the film Le Mans.

That car ran very well. As I recall, McQueen was gutted about not being able to race. Insurance issues, I believe...

Yes now you mention it, I do seem to remember hearing something about that in the documentary about the Le Mans movie I saw earlier this year. If you havenít seen that documentary, check it out. Itís a very fascinating piece

Well, it wasn't classified, but it did finish and given that it was 1970's race, ran well aside from the frequent stops to change film.

Probably the most odd-ball DNF/NC in the history of Le Mans

Are you referring to car #26, or car #29?

IIRC:
McQueen was due to partner Stewart in car #26, but did not take to the grid and are officially recorded as withdrawn.

Car #29 was entered under Solar Productions (the film company) and was driven by Herbert Linge and Jonathan Williams. The car was on pace, but lengthy pit stops to replace the film in the camera meant that it did not complete enough race distance to be classified.
