Probably easier to follow than the Le Mans 24 hours is in North America where 'live updates' means waiting three hours to find out why one of the factory Porsche lost so many laps so early.

Probably doesn't need media passes to the same degree either. I can't imagine you have to deal with French officials who either let you get away with everything or try to stop you doing anything.

Now I've had my grump the Mallard is a bit small and swimming out of the frame.

I'm guessing that the last one is a nod to Cartier-Bresson.

There are about 500 answers to that, but most of them are unsuitable for a family forum.
