Description
The small motorsport art print ‘1966 Le Mans’ by Graham Turner shows the winning Ford GT40 Mk.ll of Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon accelerating through the Esses ahead of a P3 Ferrari. As the Ford GT40 Mk.ll cars of drivers McLaren-Amon and Miles-Hulme were running within seconds of each other as the race neared its end, a decision was made in the Ford pits to have the cars finish side by side in what hopefully would be considered a dead heat. But because of a rule that in case of a tie, the car that had started further down the grid had travelled the farther distance, McLaren and Amon who had started 60 feet behind Miles and Hulme, were declared the winners.
