Deep Sandersons were heroic too!

Okay, I could have expected some comment calling Hrubon's 1966 Mini Marcos 'Le Mans most heroic entry' (click here). The Deep Sandersons that made it to the track in 1963 and 1964 were also pretty heroic, indeed. So here some pictures which I haven't published before to compensate for. Full stories on the cars at 24-hour race here for 1963, and here for 1964. Enjoy.

Another great action shot during the race. Has it just passed a Ferrari 250 GTO here?
