Just come back from Le Mans 24 and that's how you run a race and only 263,000 people there
Friday night drinking in Arnage bumped into Jan F and Chris S the traitors.

Great to see your boat running against our V24 fleet, hope you get back over again prefferably when my cat has both engines running!

I was more knackered launching and retrieving everyone than when I race.
And how good was the grub afterwards from our sponsors Stanley Gibbons.

All the best

And not a word about the Le Mans 24 on our national media sadly !
It used to be a highlight - the mean greenies have obviously wormed their way into the BBC & ITV !
