Raced on the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans, July 2nd, 1967, the departure of the France F1 GP could easily be mistaken with an antique diorama, if it was the smoke rising from tyres of these beautiful F1. The top view itself adds to this impression. It was the first Grand Prix of France to stand at Le Mans since the official championship started. The pilots were unanimous that this track was boring and all ardently wished to one day take the famous circuit 24h of Le Mans. It must be said that at the time the 13.461 km route of the Grand were more in tune with the 14.120 km of Spa and the famous 22.835 kilometers of the Nordschleiffe.
That year, Graham Hill (# 7, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth) had monopolized pole position and succeeded in gaining the best lap at an average speed of 164.625 km / h. But it was Jack Brabham (# 3, Brabham BT24 Repco-) who will win the race and its 12th victory in 2h 13mn.
Graham Hill (#7, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth), Jack Brabham (#3, Brabham BT24-Repco) and Dan Gurney (#9, Eagle T1G-Weslake) lead Jim Clark (#6, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth), Bruce McLaren (#8, Eagle T1G-Weslake), Denny Hulme (#4, Brabham BT24-Repco), Chris Amon (#2, Ferrari 312), Jochen Rindt (#12, Cooper T81B-Maserati), Chris Irwin (#15, BRM P83), Jackie Stewart (#10, BRM P261), Jo Siffert (#18, Cooper T81-Maserati), Pedro Rodriguez (#14, Cooper T81-Maserati) and Mike Spence (#11, BRM P83)
