Kwells at the ready!
Done that trip a few times Mike, I think that I can only remember one decent trip in the last 5 years. I first used that route in 1972 an vowed that I would never use it again

There has been a thread going on this one .https://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=154142

First heard about it a few years ago when it was going to be called
"Go Like hell". And had the producers contact us about some cars for the filming.
But the original story line was dropped & they invented some story about an American car company got an American car racer to design & build an ALL American car to win at LeMans .

Tanks Tel and Alan. Thought original title was " Ford vs Ferrari" in some countries. I'll go and watch as there are not so many occasions to have a dedicated movie. Just have to find a huge screen like Kinopanorama or Grand Rex in Paris. Starts today! Gentlemen… fasten your seat belts!

That's impressive, judging by the trailers for the film I don't think I'll bother. Looks like atypical US bilge.

The office is planning on going next week. Yes, it is a bit 'mercan but then again there will be racing cars even if only in "demo" mode.

OK the teaser looks a bit like a mix of Le Mans and Days of thunder with some Coke sponsoring. Thats Hollywood, ya no… Anyway I'll go, being no more French won't moan! Esquimaux, chocolats glacés, caramels Dupont d'Isigny, bonbons…

Any film with a plot revolving around Le Mans has to be good for the sport, even if the plot is far from the truth!
