LeMans picture thread - ALL pictures in here please - "Because race car"



Started off meeting bloor near my house and we set off, hitting the crash on the M1 and being stuck for about 2 hours meant we couldnt wait any longer!!

Brilliant pictures Ben!

Sunburn looks nasty, but I think it caught most of us out...

It was an absolutely epic weekend, and was great to meet everyone.

What time did you leave after the race? We left literally just before the end and managed to get to Dover for 19:30, and jumped on the 19:55 ferry. Perfect timing.

We did swing by your camp to say bye to everyone but no-one was there.

Here are a few of mine, as I am in the process of converting them into JPEG's as Imageshack apparently doesn't accept RAW.

100% going next year!
 
off to the classic in 3 weeks time , still time to get tickets ,and see some seriously epic cars .

this year there is the largest collection of the fabled ferrari 250gto's ever in one place at one time (these are the multi million £ cars owned by the likes of chris evens and nick mason ....

there will be 23 of the 38 they ever built all on track together , another stunning 24hrs of motorsport !!
 
  Clio 182 FF
Awesome weekend apart from nearly dieing when a drunk driver hit us head on and wrote the car off :dead:

I'm sure I saw some of you lot dressed in fancy dress in Mac Donalds!

Heh? Tell us more. Hope your all okay.

Looks like a quality trip (apart from the mentioned accident, hope everyone involved was ok), a couple of mates went over on an old 60's Red London bus and was gutted I couldn't go! Defo aiming to go next year though.

The stickered up cars look awesome, Blooors and Naiths iirc? Would love some more photos of them too if any has any aswell as the obvious rest that will appear in time :)
 
  Nimbus Megane R26

Good man!

Would recommend it to anyone.

The drive down is a good laugh! Being in a Megane you will have no problems keeping up with the Clios ;)

Still in the process of uploading pictures!

Didn't realise just how small christopher is.

I'm planning to go next year :)
 
  V6 Mk1, Golf GTI Mk5
Looks a great thing to do. Love the Megane and the F40 even more. Think some guys on PH went to this
 
  Renault Clio RS182
Was gonna go this year until i lost my job at the end of last year, but will DEFO be there next year!!! I'm excited already :D looks like you had an awesome time.
 
  350z GT
I got back at 10am this morning....amazing time as usual

Change of plans for next year as ill be taking my cup, my mates dad his audi s6 and my mate on his Motorbike (plus the old man in the motorhome for the luxuries obv ;)

Need to start thinking of some sticker ideas for the Clio though lol

  Clio Trophy
I would love go to le mans one year. What are rough costs and is it hard to get tickets?
 
  pimp mobile Zafira
Prices arent too bad at all. Have a look at the Beermountain web site. That should answer all questions.
 
  350z GT
Quick break down of our costs:

General Entry admission: 45 quid
Campsite Pitch: 80 quid
ACO Grandstand tickets x 2: 100 quid each
Ferry: depends what youre driving and if you have a cabin etc, we had a motorhome and a cabin on way out and return


worth every penny though for sure
 
  pimp mobile Zafira
^When you break it down like that it's so cheap for an epic weekend. Obviously booze and good put the cost up but still.
 
  182 track, Mk7 ST
Looks a proper riot. Naiths car looks bonkers with those graphics. Great job. :D

I absolutely love it, been looking into vinyl designs for mine and keep coming back to that style, BMW Art Car ftw!

The prices aren't bad either tbh for what you're getting, especially including grandstand track passes, making it even more appealing for me next year ;)
 
  AG 200 cup
Got to say I really enjoyed le mans and already can't wait till next year. Will get my pictures up tomorrow, because I'm falling asleep trying to do them now.
 
Hey Guys

I had the best time ever this year. This was my view all weekend :rasp:

Story :

Arrived Thursday afternoon
Pitched tent very close to circuit in a forest for free (same place the past FOUR years)
Saturday made a call (its who you know ;)) got 2 passes to the pit box and could spend as much time as we wanted. Our pit box was next to Audi 4 car!!
Left circuit at 4pm Sunday, went back to the tent for drinks, then drove to Arnage for something to eat
Came back at 6pm - tent, clothes (inc dirty), mattress, cool box, coats, tent PEGS, Lemonade, Chairs, tent poles, socks, shoes, pillows, flip flops, EVERYTHING - STOLEN.

Passport etc was safe in the car - drove home.

Will post more about being in the Pits, etc tomorrow!!!

I drove right behind the blue Clio with the roofbox, saturday in a long cue towards the main intrance, But the way under the tunnel was shut off. I was in a black Ford C-max or something.

That was Hainsey and myself, we only popped out for some food and ended up being out for 2 hours.
