Steve McQueen: actor, filmmaker, racing driver - and friend. Siegfried Rauch, who plays McQueen's unyielding rival in the film classic Le Mans, was a close friend of the actor in real life. Rauch takes us through this book and, for the first time, tells us how it was: what McQueen was like, the time he ate sauerkraut at the Rauch's, or played with their children - and how he became their godfather. Rauch shows a different, private side to the 'king of cool'. The other stars of Le Mans have their say as well: the real racing drivers. Herbert Linge reminisces about the Porsche 908 - which belonged to McQueen - that Linge drove as a dolly during the race. Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood tell about their victory in the Porsche 917 - the first Porsche overall victory at the Sarthe. Stuntman Dr. Erich Glavitza, who also prepared the cars, explains what happened in 1970 during the shooting in 'Solar Village', and David Piper, who lost a leg during the production. This unique book offers completely new insights into the filming of what has become a cult classic.
