In the eighties when i first went, i was in the area infront of stands opposite the pits for the start and loads of people had step ladders and even seats hung fron the rafters under the stands. They had a much better view than the rest of us as we were very tightly packed

Did you get out to Mulsanne Corner? The extended viewing area there now has a rather nice stretch where you can shoot over the fence......

I was quite surprised that I could get some decent shots from the outside of Tertre Rouge through the fence with the lens wide open....

I think you should. The viewing bank at Indianapolis is for me, the best place to watch now on the entire circuit and for us, the 'go to' place for the middle of the night.

If you wanna play the BoP game you need to play it right up until 4pm on Saturday. That's the real lesson here.

We are, but Kamui is absolutely right. The 'Alpine' winning Le Mans would have been hugely embarrassing, IMO.

Probably ACO tried to avoid another 1991 but it was quite clear that ACO intention was to limit alpine performances already from spa after they almost dominated sebring race.
Politics before motorsport, kobayashi speaks already like a veteran team principal.

And yet if the ACO had helped Alpine and they had won, we'd be accusing them of favouring a French entry.....
