#18 Jaguar C Type Tony Rolt / Duncan Hamilton 1st place overall, 1st place in S 5.0 category
The Jaguar C-Type dominated the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans with first, second and fourth places thanks to the revolutionary idea of installing disc brakes on all four wheels. The scene shows Tony Rolt and Duncan Hamilton's winning car leading ahead of the Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 M, an Aston Martin DB3S, a Lancia D20 and an Austin Healey 100/4. The pursuers have famous names: Juan Manuel Fangio and his protégé Marimon are driving the Alfa. Louis Chiron and Roberto Manzon race through the Esses of Le Mans in the Lancia. In addition to the winner, the Jaguar C-Type, only the Austin Healey from Wilkins/Becquart, which also won the class, made it to the finish line.
