One of the GT40 / Gulfs took the Le Mans track in June 1970. For the needs of Steve Macqueen’s ‘Le Mans’ film, the 1074 chassis was sold to Solar Productions, a barqueta and equipped with cameras. The car took some photos on Saturday before the start, in the hands of a young man named … Servoz-Gavin. Having given up the competition a few weeks earlier, Johny had to borrow his friend Pescarolo’s helmet for the occasion … Behind the car we recognized the film’s technical advisor, Gerard Crombac.
