This was the first year I attended Le Mans.  After years (and years) of attending the race in Sebring, Florida, I decided to change venues and watch the same style of racing at Le Mans.  Sebring is part of the American Le Mans Series.  Le Mans is where it all started.   Sebring has traditionally been sort of the testing ground for Le Mans.  Many of the same cars and teams that run at Sebring each year cross the pond to compete at Le Mans, France.  The winner of Sebring in March would be a good pick for the winner of Le Mans in June, which in fact did happen during this year's race.  

Uh, yeah, pic of sign at the Montparnasse train station in Paris. Click here for larger photo.

This TVR train deserved a pic since it took me the fastest I have ever travelled on ground. The Paris to Le Mans leg took less than one hour. I think we hit over 200 kph.  The same trip on the regular RER trains takes over three hours.

Ferris wheel at the track provided a few good photo ops. Click  

Fifty cars started the race, 23 DNF (did not finish).  There are four classes of cars racing on the track at the same time.

I tired zooming in on the big screen and taking pics to use as my own, but the pixel on pixel effect created a lot of distortion, lolam.  Click

Aston Martin Racing - Aston Martin, 2nd place GT1, 6th place overall.  You gotta love an Aston Martin with the numbers "007," as in James Bond for the uninitiated. 

Pescarolo Sport - Pescarolo-Judd, 2nd place overall and LMP1.  

Pierre Bruneau - Pilbeam-Judd, LMP2, 27th overall.  This car finished last of all cars that did finish, but just finishing is an acomplishment.  Twenty-three cars DNF.    Click

RML - MG-Lola, 1st place in LMP2, 8th place overall. 

This is Le Mans style racing.  Lola in rear finished 1st in LMP2 class and 8th overall, while Panoz in front finished 1st in GT2 class and 15th overall.    Click

Shot across track to the Karting Nord camping area, reminiscent for me of Sebring's "Swamp."

This was the closest I got to a "Z sighting" at Le Mans.  The parking lot contained an amazing collection of cars not commonly seen in the states.

There are four different classes of cars racing on the track at the same time.
