Slot Classic CJ-11/1

To participate in the 24 hours of Le Mans is undoubtely a irresistible attractive for any pilot. The magic of the circuit of La Sarthe resides in any of its curves, in the boxes, in all the show that surrounds it…

But with the nightfall the race takes a special character, the sound of the motors in the dark broken by the wake of the car lights and the bustle of the typical attractions from the surroundings of the circuits, make of this a unique and inimitable spectacle. With no doubt, an indispensable for pilots, brands and spectators.

The couple of french pilots Jean Kerguen and Jacques “Franc” Dewez thought this. Between both they summarize a total of 20 participations in Le Mans between 1.954 and 1.967. Seven times they formed couple with diverse vehicles and results like a excelent tenth position in 1.958 driving a Porche RS, though their renunciations are superior to the desired. Jena Kerguen participated other three times with other three partners, outstanding in 1.957 his eleventh position and first of the class from 2001 to 3000 c.c. driving a Aston Martin DB 3S. The participations of “Franc” without Kerguen were worse, in one of them he drived nine hours and in the other two times he didn’t overcome the first hour of race…

The model that we reproduced this time aludes to the 1.961 race, where this couple of pilots suffered the frustrating renunciation due to electric problems in the last hour of race with their Aston Martin DB IV GT Zagato butter colour. Obviously it wasn’t a great year for the David Brown’s machines: other two standar units of the Zagato were aligned, one for the couple formed by the australians Lex Davison and Bib Stilwell (dorsal number 3) and the other for the english Jack Fairmain and the french Bernard Constein (dorsal number 2). Surprisingly both ended in the third hour and for the same reason: the motor.

Undoubtely, Jean and “Franc” didn’t have the luck by their side in the french race, but they couldn’t resist, during more than a decade, to the charms of the resistence race for excellence.
