Ferrari 250 LM RHD #26 2nd 1965 24H France Le Mans Dumay/Gosselin in 1:18 scale


This is the Ferrari 250 LM RHD #26 2nd 1965 24H France Le Mans Dumay/Gosselin in 1:18 scale by CMC.

The penultimate Ferrari 250 LM built, chassis 6313, was sold new to Ecurie Francorchamps. The car was painted yellow and was used in racing throughout the 1965 season. His best result came at Le Mans, where Pierre Dumay and Gustave Gosselin finished second behind the North American Racing Team’s sister car. In the 1970s the vehicle was owned by David Piper.
The Ferrari 250 LM of Pierre Dumay and Gustave Gosselin was still leading the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans with around four hours to go when the right rear wheel exploded on the Hunaudières straight. With the bodywork severely damaged, they struggled to reach the pits, where the car was repaired. Due to the long stay in the pits, the lead was gone, but Dumay/Gosselin still came second.
