Le Mans Classic anyone ?

Postby froux » Wed May 14, 2014 4:59 pm

I'll be going on Sunday, a friend will be driving a Panhard in plateau 2.
Apparently a Mr Aga Khan is entering a 9 Le Mans : http://peterauto.peter.fr/files/pdf/lmc/2014/engages/LMC2014-entry-list-n3.pdf
Below are pictures taken during last edition :

Darn...I would have liked to go but I am going to France on May 22 so I can be in Pauillac for Mothers Day and then back to the U.S. rather quickly on Tuesday (27th). I can't afford to go back in July. Too bad too, Le Mans is a small detour from Paris to Pauillac (actually Saint Seurin de Cadourne but no one knows where that is).

I was in Lyon just 3 months ago, I should have checked and seen if anyone was near since Aix les Bains is not far from Lyon. I will be back in France at xmas and my wife wants to celebrate New Years Eve in Paris this time but I won't be in Lyon again for a few years I think. As my mother gets older I find myself going to France more often but not doing touristy things, just going home.

Take pictures !!!

I'm more familiar with St Estephe :roll: ... having studied aviation engineering in Mérignac.
Next time you're in Lyon, drop me a msg !
