Le Mans has seen a number of fatal accidents, due in part to the very high speed nature of all variants of the track throughout history.
The largest one was in , when 83 spectators and driver Pierre Levegh were killed. In the wake of the disaster, many races were cancelled, including the Grand Prix races in Germany , Spain , and Switzerland the latter as a part of a blanket ban on motorsport round-track races that was maintained until Almost all decades in which Le Mans has been run have seen their fair share of horrific accidents, such as in when Swede Joakim Bonnier was catapulted into a forest surrounding the circuit after hitting a privately entered Ferrari near the Indianapolis section; Bonnier was killed instantly.
The s was a decade where some of the race's worst-ever accidents occurred. Although Armco barriers had been installed along the straight in there were still no chicanes on the Mulsanne Straight — the place where almost all of the worst accidents took place during that time.
In , Belgian Thierry Boutsen crashed horrifically on the Mulsanne Straight in his WM-Peugeot, killing a marshal, and in the same race Frenchman Jean-Louis Lafosse was killed also on the Mulsanne Straight when his Rondeau suffered suspension failure and steered very suddenly to the right and slammed into the Armco barrier on the driver's side at extreme speeds.
The resulting explosion was so violent that the woods next to the track caught fire. Although Sheldon survived with severe burns, a track marshal was killed; two others were also severely injured.
Sheldon's own teammate, American Drake Olson in the second Nimrod-Aston Martin who was following him down the straight, crashed heavily after running over Sheldon's bodywork; he went into severe shock but survived with minor injuries.
The field was under the safety car for over an hour while the crash site was cleared and the destroyed Armco barriers were replaced.
In a similar accident befell Briton Dudley Wood in a Porsche during practice. Wood survived without injury. The car landed on its roof and was destroyed, but Nielsen escaped without injury.
In , Jo Gartner drove a Porsche C into the Mulsanne barriers and was killed instantly after the car rolled multiple times, vaulted some Armco barriers, and knocked down a telegraph pole.
The fuel tank exploded and the car burned to the ground but Cobb escaped without injury. Gartner's fatal accident remained the most recent death in the race until Allan Simonsen's crash in However, there was one fatality during a practice session in Sebastien Enjolras.
After initially happening at the Le Mans test day, Mercedes claimed to have solved the problem, only to have it occur again at warmup.
Mark Webber was the unlucky driver whose car flipped on both occasions. The final and most damaging accident occurred during the race itself when Peter Dumbreck 's CLR became airborne, flying over the safety fencing and landing in the woods several metres away.
No drivers were badly hurt in any of the three accidents, but Mercedes-Benz withdrew its remaining entry and ended its entire sportscar programme.
In , two horrific accidents occurred to two of the three factory Audis in the LMP1 class. Near the end of the first hour, the No. In the eleventh hour of the race, another accident occurred, this time to the No.
Only the main cockpit safety cell of the car remained along with major damage being done to the barriers that needed to be repaired before the race was resumed.
Audi had switched to a closed-cockpit car starting in , a decision credited for the fact that neither driver was injured. The regulations required all cars to be closed-cockpit as a direct result of the accident.
The Ferrari also ended up in the barrier, flipping and coming to a halt on its roof. Davidson suffered broken vertebrae. The event plays a critical part in the Academy Award —winning Un Homme et Une Femme , in which the wife of the driver hero commits suicide when she mistakenly thinks that he is killed in an accident.
The event, known for its close finish, was portrayed in a short film called La Ronde Infernale. This was given a limited cinema release, but is now available on DVD.
The race became the center of a major motion picture in when Steve McQueen released his simply titled Le Mans , starring McQueen as Michael Delaney, a driver in the event for the Gulf Porsche team.
Likened to other motorsports films such as Grand Prix for Formula One racing and Winning for the Indianapolis , Le Mans is the best known film to center on sports car racing.
It was filmed during the race using modified racing cars carrying cameras, as well as purchased Porsche s , Ferrari s and Lola T70s for action shots made after the race.
The Porsche which served as a camera car in the race actually finished, yet was so far behind the winners due to lengthy reel changes during pit stops that it was not classified in the results.
Michel Valliant was a French movie about a French comic book motorsports hero that featured events from the race although it was not explicitly about Le Mans.
Again using two camera cars to tape action during the race, the French film was not as widely accepted as Le Mans had been. A documentary film called Truth in 24 narrated by Jason Statham was about the Audi team's effort to win a fifth straight title in in which Le Mans was prominently featured.
A sequel film about the Audi team's victory in the race, Truth in 24 II , was released four years later in , also narrated by Statham.
The Ford versus Ferrari rivalry at Le Mans, one of the most famous battles in racing history, has been featured in:. The race has also been used for several video games over the years, some of which have allowed players to compete for the full 24 hours.

These exhibition races involve classic cars that had previously run at Le Mans or are similar to ones that had.
Each year, a particular era of cars may participate, with the featured era changing from year to year. Though most drivers in this event are amateurs, some noted professional drivers have appeared to race cars they had previously run, such as Stirling Moss and Derek Bell.
