The 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1955. The race looks great, 300,000 spectators are watching. At 6 pm Pierre Levegh’s car ploughs into the spectator stands, scattering the crowd with his car engine’s hot debris. It is a tragedy that will cost more than 80 lives. And yet, the race goes on. A friend and co-pilot of Pierre Levegh’s is ready to take the relay. His name is John Fitch.
