Set of 6 colour photos of the 1961 Montlhery 1000 kms GT race 'le Mans start' which features Three Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagatos closest to the camera as the drivers run across the road, climb into the cars and make a rapid exit.
Most of the other cars visible amid the throng are Ferrari 250GT SWBs including Mairesse, Trintignant, Abate and the Rodriguez brothers. One shot clearly shows the slow starting Roy Salvadori in the famous 2 VEV registered Aston Martin Zagato works team car.
Nice photos of these charismatic early 60's GT racers at a classic circuit doing the classic run-and-jump type of start that hasn't been seen since the 60s'!
