Fifty-five years ago this weekend, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans motor race, a combination of high speeds, bad luck and the ultimate wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time conditions contributed to the worst disaster in motorsports history, one that left more than 80 people -- including spectators and drivers -- dead.
