Le Mans Classic 2016

Le Mans Classic 2016

I spent the last few days at the Le Mans Classic event. It is a great event and I actually prefer it over the real 24h race.

The journey really starts to get interesting as soon as you get near a ferry port or the channel tunnel. All sorts of classic cars on the roads eventually arriving and producing great views at the waiting areas to board.

Then there is a quick look around on the ferry followed by the tedious crossing.

Stops for Fuel and the obligatory nature breaks on the way

But once you are there things really get good!

There was a brief flyby by a vintage fighter or two. This I think was a spitfire. The smoke traces it left behind had a life of their own!

Group C’s kept on their own – don’t know what happened to the Jaguar though 🙁

Amazing church in Dieppe. Went and had a quick look around it and one of the Volunteers was really knowledgeable. Kept us talking so much we were almost last to check in!

Amazing church
