Ken Rudd and the 1957 Le Mans 24 hour Race.

AC Heritage have obtained, as yet, an unpublished series of black & white images of Ken Rudd, Peter Bolton and members of the 1957 AC Cars Le Mans team.

Driving car 31 AC ACE Bristol Rudd & Bolton finished 10th in a race dominated by the D-Type Jaguar, taking the top 4 places with the winning car of the Ecurie Ecosse Team driven by Flockhart & Bueb completing some 327 laps in the 24 hours. The private entry of Duncan Hamilton, again in a D-Type finished 6th.

The image sees Ken Rudd in the ACE talking to Peter Bolton during the race.

 We would like to thank both James Waugh and Tony Bancroft in connection with allowing these wonderful images to be displayed on our website and too say there will be 'ACE Bristol' featured section coming soon!
