Alpine A210 - 24 Heures du Mans 1966

Added by AutomotiveUploads
In prototypes, Alpine made its debut in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1963, under the management of José Rosinski. Here, Alpine demonstrated its originality by targeting performance and efficiency rather than outright victory. With their small, 1000cc or 1300cc Gordini engines, the cars were able to defeat their rivals thanks particularly to their carefully honed aerodynamics. In 1964, Henry Morrogh and Roger Delageneste won their class at Le Mans in an 1100cc M64.

In 1966, there was a second victory for fuel efficiency with the A210 of Cheinisse/Delageneste, but it was above all a group success as the four Alpine prototypes that finished the race covered a total of more than 4,000km – a feat that no French car had ever accomplished before either at Le Mans, or elsewhere.
