... this year the edition cost a lot of money to the ACO and all the teams because the race was cancelled just one week before.

What's this year?

Not sure of the year, but I think 197something, but it understand it was due to the French National Sport... going on strike.

You don't win Le Mans - you outlast it.

And they nearly cancelled the race in 1974 due to the oil crisis.  Roll Eyes

I don't care - I'm a racing driver and I'm here to win, not to finish third.

Gilles, let's face it, in any year there's generally a strike somewhere in France.  Wink

And it was cancelled in June 1968 the race eventually took place in September 1968 due to civil unrest in France.
