Planning, strategy, and sometimes trickery can mean all the difference between going home as a winner, or a loser. This Demo Day took a deeper look at the surprising history of the Le Mans class system and explored how the introduction of prototype cars would change the game forever.

Featured cars included the 1963 Ferrari 250P, 1966 Ford GT40 MKII, 1970 Porsche 917LH, and the 1975 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 TT 12.
