Ford GT40 + Jaguar E-Type onboard

Ford GT40s, who doesn't like them? I mean a big V8 roar, great looks, le mans winning pedigree and an icon of its time. As we noticed that at the end of the month in the Spa Six Hours historic race there will be an amazing turn out of no less than 10 (!) GT40s, we thought it would be a good idea to dig into Youtube and find some period onboard footage. Thankfully the Youtube treasure trove always has something to offer, mostly in questionable quality, but the clip in this post isn't too bad. This one shows us round the Le Mans track during the Le Mans Classic 2008. Don't like GT40s, then come and see the 12 Jaguar E-Types that have been entered for the Spa Six Hours race. Of course Youtube offered up some good onboard images of these beauties as well, see it after the jump.

This should surely convince you of going to Spa on 23, 34 and 25 September to hear (and see) all these english and american monsters, and possibly more of them in the other support races. We will put together a more detailed preview of the whole event later this month.
