John Greenwood and Bernard Darniche in their impressive looking and rumbling 7.0L V8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans (picture above and below). The pairing was forced to retire after five hours, because of leaking fuel cell.

John Greenwood (1945-2015) was an American race car driver, entrepreneur and automotive performance car builder and engineer. Specialised in Chevrolet Corvettes, he raced three times at Le Mans (1972-73-76), and was a front runner in the Trans-Am and IMSA GT Series. He even won the pole position for the 1975 24 Hours of Daytona.

Bernard Darniche (born 28 March 1942) is a French former rally driver. He holds the record for most victories in the Tour de Corse which he won six times, a feat later equalled by Didier Auriol. He also competed six times in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and won his class twice in a Rondeau in 1978 and 1979.
