NelisB should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Pre race parade

Just read in Dutch Octane magazine Porsche are restoring alot of old le mans cars to use in a big parade. They say it's going to have everything from Porsche 550 spyders till the gt1.
That's going to be a sight to behold.

That sounds good will be interesting to see what paint schemes they will use remembering all the now not allowed advertising, perhaps the pink pig will be there

Can't historic cars run in original livery? For example the Martini liveries on the Lancias in the Group C race and the Matras that ran a couple of years back I seem to remember having Gitanes written on them.

Obviously if the pink pig saw fit to run I'm fairly sure nobody's going to object too vigorously...

With the 'cars of the decade' last year the Porsche 956 ran with Rothmans livery, so I don't see the problem in using contemporary alcohol or tabacco livery in the parade?

Certainly something to look forward to. Maybe the Jules livery as that one won the second time I went to the race.

That would be awesome if it comes off.

It will have a real Porsche feel with the Carrera Cup race as support too.

Can't see any reason why they should not be in the parade in original livery, would love to see that.

I'd love to see Moby Dick return to Le Mans if we're putting a bit of a fantasy list together.

You can see stupid things with these over-protecting social laws.
Because of our famous law Evin of 1992, even the "Rothmans" stickers are hidden in the box of a Spark Die-cast model of a Porsche 962 ! So you have to stick them by yourself. As Spark is French conception, they had to think about it.
But, given the Porsche prototypes are historic racing cars, I don't think that the organisers will be asked to hide alcohol/tobacco brands. Or I hope so.
