    Turbines must have been the "in thing" in the mid'60's. Rover-BRM raced at Le Mans with a turbine powered car in 1965, after demonstrating a car in 1963 and withdrawing in 1964. The 1965 effort was driven by Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart, who I believe were factory BRM drivers in F1 at the time. The car raced in the 2-litre class and performed quite well, finishing 10th overall and first British car home.
