The Le Mans Classic, drivers race old expensive cars around the circuit in 2008. Kinda fun if you’re a boy, or a petrolhead as I am.
The noise, the speed of those cars, the smell of high octane fuel! Woohoo!
Linked to October Squares at Becky’s here
Your kinda fun ain’t my kinda fun. Dreadful memories of accompanying my father to smelly motor races and hours and hours of boredom! But I like the drop cap! I tried it on my post too, but it didn’t look good in the context.
I know this isn’t your idea of fun, Margaret. I’m pleased the drop c apical came out, didn’t seem to when I was prev
I know not your fun, Margaret. Pleased the drop capworked…didn’t seem to in preview
How odd. No, it was there loud and clear.
Fascinating….I still don’t see it correctly on my iPad
Try looking on your other computer?
I will tomorrw, minus energy today
Yay, you’ve been playing with bock editor. Have to admit though I won’t be playing with you at Le Mans, classic or not! All the things you love about it are all the things I hate!!!! Absolutely loving the pic though – just fabulous 🙂
The image worked well….I was shooting through chain link fencing, but with a nifty bit of aperture work (shallow DOF) you barely noticed it
you’re clever 😀
I have my moments….
Yay! Classic beauty 🙂 🙂
Yep….Formula 1 may be todays thing…. but you cannot beat the sound and smells of the various early stages of Motor Racings evolution. One of the most exciting races I do remember standing at track side for was at Oulton Park. A Saloon Car Race….. Jim Clarke in one of the first Lotus Cortina’s, which was no slouch, being overtaken by a ginormous Ford Galaxy driven by American Dan Gurney. Would never happen these days 🙂
And I envy you seeing Jim Clark at the wheel…..
Not sure now…too long ago… but the event featured many GP drivers who would not normally drive at Oulton Park. It wasn’t the debut of the Lotus Corton but the debut success had created so much hype that attendance was very high at Oulton… add Dan Gurney and the oversize Galaxy and the day was special
Great to watch, very expensive to be a part of. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
