They won't get far on that track! My other half has got a Mazda but it doesn't look like that one. Nice shots Mark.

Re: Le Mans

I remember being there when that Mazda 787B raced, you could hear it go all the way around, no mean feat for a track that size, an incredible car
i'll dig some of my pics from a few years ago

Thanks for those.

Anne and I walked that track way back in the '70s - I worked for Dunlop at the time.

I'll settle for #53 probably a bit for suitable for the roads round here

Re: Le Mans

Was there for the first time last year - as a guest of a smartphone manufacturer

I was very privileged to have been given the use of a tabard that provided full photographer access to the trackside.

Re: Le Mans

The museum is very good. When we were there it was very quiet, the only other guests were a few Brits in 4x4s with Caravan Club stickers and towbars. Nothing exotic in the car park.

We could hear stuff going around the track but it was closed to spectators.

Le Mans itself was just another Western European city except for the very pretty old town.

Nice shots. I was pleased as punch when I had to change trains in Le Mans, last year (yay, I’ve been there) due to a technical issue.
