Anybody going to the Petit Le Mans?

I finally have my arrangements made and will be there (working) -- anybody else?

I will be a marshal at t-12. I will be wearing my "Official Dunlop Le Mans" coveralls. Just yell out for "thebear". What kind of work will you be doing?:confused:

Chasing, er, interviewing drivers mainly. I'm making arrangements for Le Mans next year and will be talking to the owners of Petersen White Lightning and to the two lead drivers of Alex Job Racing. Plus Speed World Challenge pilots to be named as soon as can catch them.

Hello, Liz,

Unfortunately I can't make it - very disappointing, as Petit Le Mans was in my 2004 schedule since... late 2002!

Have a good time there,

Muzza

Good, I like meeting up with corner workers! It gets me out of the house for one thing. You ought to have a lot of interesting work to do at Turn 1.

Hi Liz, I look forward to seeing you there.

In all my visits to RA, I have never worked Turn 1 before. If the cars don't keep me too busy, being on a post by the pits certainly will give me an advantage for using my free time. I can't wait!

I wonder if anyone is going to this race just to watch it? Everyone I know is going there to work!

Orbit Racing have just announced their 3rd driver for the PLM -- he's another German Porsche Prodigy, 19 years old. They'll be pushing them to the track in prams soon....

Let's see:
1. Orbit races Porsches
2. Porsche factory has an "interest" in results
3. Porsche factory provides "support/information/services" to Orbit
4. Porsche factory has a `training' series that they support
5. Training requires experience on a variety of tracks
6. "Older" men (women?) do not stand much of a chance of getting into the `program'
7. A phone call, possibly at midnight: "I want you to do me a favor"
:confused: What do you think comes next?

I'd guess THIS comes next:

Quote:
Rockenfeller, 19, is a member of the UPS Porsche Junior Team, driving the No. 1 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car in the German Porsche Carrera Cup series. He led the series driver championship in September, the youngest driver ever to do so. With one race remaining, he is a close second in driver points, with one pole position, one win, three podiums and six top-five finishes in the eight races this season.
I'm sure he's another fleet footed German lad, but watch him around those Prototypes, you lot at Turn 1! I recall a rather nasty accident to John Force's Porsche when a Panoz used him for target practice right off the line in 2001 ...

I do know of someone going to watch. We have a new person in our Atlanta office who races a BMW. I haven't met him yet but might get the chance at the Petit.

GTV27 - When you're my height, most men seem petite. Le petit homme is "the small man." I'll go look at them. Le Mans is the modern spelling for the city of Le Manceaux that has been around for, oh, 4000 years or so.
