We could wait and see whether Eric can remember the question and his answer
In the fact she asked me what we were doing. So I explained we all come from around the world, we all chat on an english site about our mutual passion for the 24 h of Le Mans. And then we all meet on the race day at 12. We all bring lot of things to share. I explained we had food and some beverages . Because of all the details I gave to her and I was close to the table she resumed with what she wrote in the article.

Looks like we've agreed on the translation in general terms.
And also discovered that the quality of journalism in regional newspapers is much the same in similar circumstances in France as in England.

Quite, I was translating the article rather than repeating a fact! Quite different things.

And while I'm not present in that photo, is that Liz? The Canadian lady who always wrote such perfect English. If so, she stopped posting in 2005, I wonder why?

She was a strange old lady who liked to dish out her political views however she seemed to get herself all in a tizzy and departed when she discovered that not everyone agreed with her...

She also got very fed up with people reminding her she was American rather than Canadian... I wonder who that was?

How odd, I remember quite the reverse. I recall having quite robust conversations with her but the next time we would meet she would greet me with a hello and a smile and we would launch into our next disagreement, never bad tempered or cross.

I didn't know she was American!

Obviously I know the names of most of the regulars, however my memory for faces is a lot stronger these days than my memory for names!

So to start a list off, here are some names - can you please fill in those I've not yet recorded -

Ayse
Bentley03
tonypowe
Kpy
CTD
nobster
PascaLM
Amandine
Vincent
batmobile
Axel
Bernard B
Victor_RO
Dani Filth
GT6
Elaviel
RBlanshard
claude2cv
kpkorsager
Mike ('Vincent's Replacement')
ss_collins
GTfour
ATLFalconsFAN
Madkart
Giba
willxr50
Dyson Mazda

I think Mal was there too but I don't see him in the photo.

There are other faces there too that I recognise only too well but I'm kicking myself as names aren't coming immediately to my brain. So can those I have shamefully failed to identify (put it down to increasing senility!) please speak up...... Ta.
