You have to have a lot of enthusiasm to want to conquer Le Mans. As a driver, as a designer and especially if you want to be both. Some people have dedicated their lives, or at least a large part, to this goal. Jean Rondeau succeeded in the fairy tale in 1980. Briggs Cunningham tried his own construction as early as 1951, after paving the way for recognition by the ACO in 1950 with two Cadillacs and the two Collier brothers as mental companions. After the C2R, which Cunningham used in 1951 with not too much success, he became class winner and fourth overall in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1952 with the C4R. Mercedes won the race in 1952 with the 300 SL after Pierre Levegh had led Talbot by 23 hours. Third was the Nash-Healey of the two Englishmen Leslie Johnson and Tommy Wisdom, ten laps ahead of Briggs Cunningham and Bill Spear. The C4R relegated numerous well-known teams and brands to places: Ferrari, Lancia, Allard, Porsche, Aston Martin, Panhard, Gordini, Jowett, Osca and Renault.
