Car pics - Le Mans Endurance @ Silverstone (56k heavy)
    #3004273 - 08/14/04 02:22 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I just got back from Silverstone and thought I'd share a few pics from the Le Mans Endurance race (6 hours, 1000km). :smile:
I wish I had a better digi-cam though, these cars are faster than the exposure time on it...













And a few of the other cars I saw about.  There were so many more but my batteries ran out on the camera.


I lost count of how many Ferraris I saw today.















And for HB, a few Audis, including the RS6:

The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

That blue Anglia(sp?) is pretty sweet. Nothin says it quite like a 6-71 blower gleeming in the sunlight.

you don't just sit in the same spot for hours. usually it's more than just a race. you can go get something to eat. talk with friends. look at the cars on display and sometimes they have booths with products and exhibitions.

I couldn't stay and watch the whole thing, the race actually had 60 mins left to run as I was making the post back at home. :smile:
It was also next to impossible to figure out who was actually winning.  There were loudspeakers at various points, but the cars were so loud that you couldn't hear any commentary.  There was plenty to do though, spent a lot of the time walking around the track checking out the various vantage points (and checking out the cool cars in the car-park).  The team areas were also quite open so you could walk around the parts trailers and watch the teams work on some of the vehicles.
