Steve McQueen's LeMans Saturday on TMC

The greatest race in the world (apologies to Indy, NASCAR & F1 fans), this year's 24 Heures du Mans runs from June 11 to June 12, 2011. Steve McQueen immortalized the race with his 1971 movie "LeMans" (airing on TCM-Turner Classic Movies on Saturday, January 22, 2011.) Jalopnik & Wikipedia report that the movie was not well received at the time and nearly bankrupted McQueen. But it is considered a classic today, very accurately portraying the grueling race and the legendary rivalry between Ferrari and Porsche.
