Yes, in the history of Le Mans I rate him well up there in the top three of my most expletive-worthy Le Mans features, along with the desecration of the Esses and the Dauer Porsche of 1994.....

It certainly brings forth a big 'hurrah' from me, however I'm not so sure about the other changes envisaged as a result. Fencing 4 feet higher and the relocation of the Restaurant des 24 Heures at Arnage?? (Mind you, if it stays open all night, could be very welcome in those early hours.....!)

Well that certainly is a turn up for the books, seems some people really want to see the proper Mulsanne back and why not? It wasn't that dangerous anyway

They forgot the bit about drivers having to stop at dusk to change into appropriate evening wear and the insistance that all cars carry a picknik hamper in case they breakdown
