Re: Very Wet Le Mans 2007....
Woo! Aston won at last!
The Astons have always been quicker than the Corvettes but have lost due to technical trouble. This year they seem to have improved with all 6 finishing although some did have trouble and spent time in the pits.
Top marks to Peugeot for putting their car and team together at such short notice, only 6 months. It was quite a bit behind the Audis though, at 10 laps! Goes to show that the diesel regulations need more tweaking as they are still too fast.
Rain wasn't really an issue. The last two years have been unbearably hot so this year it was quite a refreshing change.
One thing I did notice is that the crowds are getting larger and larger. Much more queuing this year than last year, especially for food, drink, toilets etc. I think maybe they need to open a new viewing area, perhaps at one of the Mulsanne chicanes? The work done at Tetre Rouge is great, much expanded viewing areas, hopefully they will carry on and maybe redevelop Porsche Curves or put in a new spectator area.
Saw a few nice alfas including an British SZ (at Houx camp site I think), and a nice Dutch GTV6 in black with a 3l conversion and enormous power bulge in the bonnet.
Maybe we will see the 8C there next year on the track!
