Le Mans 08


Series

Recommended Posts

Well guys a happy New Year to you all, and yes I still have my Esprit Highwing, so I am now planning on taking her again to Le Mans this year.

anyone else interested in taking a run down to middle France, cant remember the exact date in June normally aound the 12th. will be leaving on the Thursday am from Dover to Calais. and returning Sunday.

Last year was very eventful especially with all the rain. (where is the climate change when you really need it)

but it will be nice to convoy down with a few other Esprits, Bibs was down there last year, never got a chance to stop and chat. ATM there will be myself a Mitz and a TVR, more in the offing.

Me, my mate Jim, the Orange lady and the radio controlled water cannon will be going down. Heading off Thursday am, and back Moanday. Staying with Club Valan at the airport. What time train?ferry are we all getting on Thursday? Sounds like an opportunity for a meet and a hoon down to La Sarthe.

Most enduring memory from last year was getting a bag of crisps passed from a guy in an RX8 on the Motorway while doing a (00mph. Typical Le Mans madness.

We used to camp next to a bunch of guys calling themselves Black Rat racing. All thier cars looked like they had escaped from an episode of Moster Garage, they even had an Esprit G car in pink with a Rover V8 in it!!! As well as a nice V8

That's the Mulsanne straight last year :ermm:

The chap in the green V8 is Cliff Davies, he was at the factory day in '06 and he built the pink car. It's not a Rover V8, it's a V8 he built himself one afternoon, I asked about it at the time! :fun:

Im doing the clasic Lemans this year, Iwent down to the classic in 2006 with Lotus Drivers Club, somehow we got the chance to drive the circut (with pase car in front) we soon dropped back leaving a nice gap so acheiving speeds of 120+ mph. The only problem was there was some 150 911s and another 50+ lotuses at the same time, still good fun. The only good thing about the classic is that you can actually get space on a camp site or in a hotel,

Just booked the 7.50 shuttle on the 12th, anyone else on that one?

I recommend if you ar going to book your crossing, Speed Ferries are aready sold out on several crossings on Thursday and the return on Monday. We decided to do the tunnel this year as never done it before.

We are staying in Dover area Wednesday 11th, so if anybody else is around good opp for a meet up?

I am planning on going down again this year with my dad & brother. Hopefully the Esprit will be fit for the trip this time aswell :blink:

Just booked 2 camping tickets for Karting Nord which is supposedly numbered pitches this year so we might stand a chance of finding some free space when we come down on Friday morning - Have yet to sort out the crossings yet...

Can't wait.... :popo::lol:

Next year I might try and be more organised and attempt to get tickets for Houx...

Will be going down on the Thursday am on the 6am train, staying in a hotel this year on the Mulsanne straight just after the second chicane. After 10 years of campsites decided a bit of comfort well overdue -

I'm camping in Tetre Rouge this year, heading down on Thursday am in the Esprit (stickered up of course!) and back on Monday morning. Anyone up for a beer?

Good points to meet up might be Friday lunchtime on Mulsanne with the crowds, Friday evening or Saturday evening? Call me on 07973 402532 or make the arrangements here!

I hope everyone going will be decorating their Esprits with LEF stickers!? :lol:

We will be cruising round too on Friday morning, and parking up at Indianapolis corner before as you say they close the roads. We will be in a Chrom Orange GT3 so shouldn't be too hard to miss.
