Chris Craft's memories in CaS 4/10:

"Alain [de Cadenet] ran me in '71 in a 512M that was a truck - very heavy steering - but I pulled 230mph and more on the Mulsanne once the motor loosened up. We had something like 560bhp, a real stonker. I was down to drive with [car owner] David Weir, a wealthy American playboy who went on to write for Road & Track. I admit that I was not at all keen. David was a party animal and an erratic driver, but Le Mans was his dream. We got him down to Dave Prowse's gym in the East End - Dave being the old Green Cross Code man who played Darth Vader - and got him in shape. Weir knuckled down and drove well, while the car was fantastic. You have to keep in mind that we were a potless privateer team up against manufacturersand well-funded semi-works teams."
