    Late reply to this and the link is now gone, but I spotted this after I'd been listening the entrance medley cue released in 1984 on cassette for quite some time and then one night I caught "Le Mans" on TV and when this particular section came up at the film's climax, I started doing the biggest WTF double-take of all-time at how this small snippet was part of the EPCOT entrance medley more than a decade earlier and there is NOTHING else in the "Le Mans" score that shows any sign of being borrowed or recycled (nor is there any evidence as far as I know that Michel Legrand had anything to do with any Disney park music). It was clearly no coincidence, but how it came about we'll likely never know.

    Here is a link to that soundtrack, Go to 34:22 or so and within 10 seconds, you'll hear it. I've not seen the movie, but sure enough, there it is!

    Even if you like racing, "Le Mans" is a very tedious movie to sit through. It was basically Steve McQueen's personal vanity piece to give him a chance to race on-screen after he'd failed to get a role in "Grand Prix" a few years earlier. There is almost no plot at all, just racing footage weakly stitched together.

    Glad the soundtrack is up again on YT so others can do this comparison to the same section in the Entrance Medley.
