Alpine M64, Porsche 904, Ferrari 250LM

Both prototypes and GT racers entered their entry lists for the 12 Hours of Reims, becoming half the Le Mans race. The fast triangular race track consisted of public roads, the long straights invited to slipstream fights. The grandstands and boxes still stand along the Gueux road. The main opponents in July 1964 were the nine privately entered Ferraris, some with works drivers, and ten Porsches, two of which were works cars. The Le Mans start of the race took place at midnight. Floodlit in the pits, two Porsche 904s can be seen - one is slamming the door - and two Alpine Renault M64s to the right of the watercolor, and a Ferrari 250LM, blazing with lights, speeding off into the dark Champagne night. After a fierce battle, Graham Hill and Jo Bonnier's Ferrari 250LM beat John Surtees and Lorenzo Bandini's identical car by one lap to take the win.
