    We have one of these devoted to F1 so I thought it was about time we had another devoted to the rest.
    I'll start the ball rolling.

    Probably the most iconic edition of the most iconic 24 hour-race.

    Le Mans 1967. One of the most beautiful race-car there ever was, the Ferrari 330P4, trying all it can to foil the might of Ford and their armada of GT40's:

    Mike The Bike on that incredible winning comeback at the Isle Of Man in 1978:

    I think we can fill this whole thread with pictures of Mario Andretti in various race cars other than F1, such was the skill of the man behind the wheel. Here's the Andretti family with their first racing car.

    and him tackling Pikes Peak before Health and Safety got involved.

    Photos of (top to bottom) the 2A, 2D, 2E,2F and 2J cars from the Chaparral team, possibly the most innovative race team in history. As far as I know, the were the first team to use: a racing automatic transmission, hip-mounted (rather than nose mounted) radiators, wings, fan and skirt-assisted downforce (8 years before the Brabham BT46b copied the idea).

    I happen to think that the A,D and F are also very good-looking cars, but that is individual taste.

    Unlimited hydroplane racing. The roar of the Rolls Royce Merlins and Griffons alone was worth the price of admission. Alas, the universal adoption of turbines killed my interest in the sport, but it was really spectacular while the piston engines ruled.

    Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson winning the Mille Miglia in the Mercedes 300 SLR. Great crowd control back then!

    1970 Le Mans. The beginning of the great Porsche 917 vs Ferrari 512 battle.
    #25 and #3 both exceeded 230 mph on the Mulsanne straight this year. 1971 upped that to 240+!

    Not an iconic image but an iconic car - Porsche's pink pig photographed by me on my summer holiday.

    1969 Can Am series. The most technologically open series I ever heard of. Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme on the front row.

    The perfect season. 11 wins from 11 starts for the McLaren cars.

    But those wings are truly hideous in every respect, aside from the fact they worked of course.
