    I was on business in France and paid a visit to the museum at the Le Mans track, venue of the famous 24 hour endurance race.

    1. Porsche 919 Hybrid. Winner in 2015, 16 and 17. This car still has the dirt from the race on it.

  2. Nice , on my bucket list to attend the race.
     
  3. Great shots, the Audi cockpit is something else. Did they have a 917 Porsche on display? It’s my favorite, stood next to one when it was started before a race years ago, I’m convinced the ground was moving from the noise.

    Thanks John, its on my bucket list as well.

    Thanks rick, they had a 917 Lang Heck (long tail), but I only managed a phone shot, somehow missed shooting it with the DSLR.

  5. Wow, that is a museum I have to see. That Ferrari 166 you shot is a reminder to a time when you had to be crazy to drive those cars. Great shot of the 917, thanks.
     
  6. These are wonderful. I envy you the opportunity to visit there. #3 shows an environment few of us get to experience.
