Re: Anyone heading to Le-mans
It's true, the racing is almost secondary.
I was there the year it rained on various parts of the track (2001 i think) and there were multiple pile ups, had Grandstand tickets too. So we darted around the track trying to see a crash, so got to see some of the racing.
Also managed to get into the cafe on the Mulsanne straight and stand on the wall that overlooks the staight, had to hold on as the Corvettes came past cos the sound alone from them at 200+ mph was enough to push me backwards off the wall!
The following year was missed some of the race while trying to come up with 750 euros to get our pick-up back from the lovely Genderme. Won't tell you what we were doing when they decided to confiscate it :S
Oh, and if anyone's seen the 60' flagpole made out of a tree, thats our group
Still depressed i wasn't there this year
