And so here we are, some 16 weeks and more after my 2017 Le Mans
trip started; its incredible just how time flies. Since then
we've had Porsche pulling the plug on their LMP1 programme (leaving
us wondering what Toyota are going to do....) then Silverstone was
off - and then on again for a much better August slot! As to
what we'll be watching at La Sarthe in June 2018, I've really no
idea other than some great GTEs and loads of LMP2s. I've just
come back from a delightful week with my lovely wife at Center Parcs
(a very late summer holiday) and I'm still writing the 2017 Le Mans
Story - in old fashioned pen and ink at the moment. As things
are going, I should be good for publication in a short while - and
that means about February/March next year!
Plans are now being
firmed up for Le Mans 2018 as I write this. Both of my boys
are intent upon coming to Le Mans, Toby for the second time (after
his debut in 2016) and James for the first time. Better start
saving up guys!
