No surprise this is animated. Good luck tracking down an actual '55 Mercedes 300 SLR, Porsche Spyder racer, Jag D-Type, and Ferrari 750 Monza and getting the permission and funds to rent them!

This film was about the Le Mans Disaster that had occurred during the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the evening of the 11th June 1955.

The disaster had occurred at 6:20PM, when the No. 20 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, driven by French racing driver, Pierre Bouillin (known as Pierre Levegh) and his American co-driver, John Fitch collided with the No. 26 Austin-Healey 100 S, driven by British private entrant racing driver, Lance Macklin and his co-driver, Les Leston, sending Bouillin's Mercedes over the Healey and into the crowd.

The impact of the crash had caused the car to disintegrate and throwing Bouillion from the car, killing him.

At the time of the crash, John Fitch was in the Mercedes-Benz Team's trailer parked behind the pits, having a coffee with Bouillin's wife when they heard the crash.

Fitch then told Madame Bouillion to stay at the trailer while he would see what had happened.

In an interview given years after the disaster, Fitch stated when he got to the scene, he saw the carnage and assisted some of the injured members in the crowd.

When he returned to the trailer, Fitch then stated that Madame Bouillin could see the "grim look" on his face and immediately knew that Bouillin had been killed.
