The 24 hour is a brilliant WEEK................
Thousands just make it for the weekend race and get boozed up.
For 10 years friends and myself spent the whole week there enjoying the initial solitude in RVs. Then watching all the people coming in caravans, tents, sleeping bags and car boots.
We enjoy the cobbled back streets of Le Mans dining and the two days of scrutineering where you can get to touch the cars.
Then there are the two evenings of trials and night testing.
But then on the friday night 200,000 'fans' descend and start drinking for England. But they can't hold a candle to the Germans. It gets hectic from then on.
I park up as close to the course as possible but watch it on French TV.
It's a 'Woodstock' on wheels.
We were supposed to be in Amersfoort last month visiting my fathers war grave but it's been delayed till September.
Odd innit. I like peace and quiet and go to a 24 hour race..??
As I have been stuck way out from the other campsites and entertainment 'village'. I dug out an old bike that had been hanging in my old damp shed for 15 years. Blew the tyres up and peddaled around the estate.
But took all day sifting through hundreds of old car and padlock keys trying to fit the one on the bike.
10 hours later after finding locks and keys that didn't marry up, the required key was in the saddle bag of the bike. Duuurrrr
