The 1955 edition of the 24 Heures du Mans is of course most infamous for the horrendous accident with Pierre Levegh's Mercedes which crashed into the main grandstand.
The race was won by Mike Hawthorn and Ivor Bueb in their Jaguar D-Type (S/N XKD505) with a total of 307 laps to their name.
The event was equally dramatic for Ferrari as NONE of the 5 entered cars made it to the finish...
