Le Mans 24hr 16-17 June 07..

Well the car's ready and in 7 days I'll be joining 22 other RX-8's and about 100'000 other Brits that make the 250mile drive down to Le Mans through France. 4 days of beer ... cars .. beer ... cars ... beer ...etc

There's nothing like standing at Arnage corner at 4am watching cars come at you out of the dark at about 170mph and then brake to about 40 for a 90 degree right hand turn, glowing brakes and firey exhausts....awsome!!

THE CAR







THE EVENT

The Fiday morning before the race there's an "un-official" meet at Arnage corner (70% of the course is public roads)
