Le Mans is a race for girls and sissies who are only interested in getting drunk in a field to the distant sound of a car in the background. If you want to come to a REAL race you should come to the Nurburg 24H. 220 cars (in a single 24H race!) and 25KM's per lap. I have shot this since 2007 and I can tell you it makes le mans look like childs play. Tickets are €80 for the week and the access to the race the teams and the track is far greater than Le Mans.

Here is some video just to get you in the mood:
The entry is so large there is 3 starts (Im the photographer at 49 seconds on the left checking my camera ;) )

And the one that puts chills up my spine every time

Bahnstormer: what are the dates for the 'ring race?

I'm planning on heading back to le mans this year again. Make sure you choose your campsite carefully for what you want - they all have different atmospheres, personally I think Maison Blanche is the best by a country mile. Other top tip would be to get tickets for the ACO grandstand as they have decent showers and toilets you can use inside (and very few people know they exist) - typically the ones in the campsites smell bad enough to make you retch by the end of the week.

Yeh we are off next year, we go in a close unit to prevent people coming that dont really conform, agree or value our values so to speak, bit arrogant some will say but it means no dramas in our group and problems so we aint really arsed if people dont like the idea but the thread i do i'll put on MS too... LeMans is heaven.
