I dispute your claim that the longest solo drive in the 24 hours was by Levegh in 1952. This belongs to ER ‘Eddie’ Hall who drove his Bentley to eighth in 1950 without letting his nominated co-driver Tommy Clarke behind the wheel.
And Wilbur Wright’s visit to Le Mans was in 1908 not 1907 and there was no runway for him at the Hippodrome. He launched his plane by dropping a heavy weight attached to a rope which went over a pulley mounted on top of a tower.
I AM, YOURS, ETC.
