Cerbera Speed12 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

My laptop, my tent or my job - your decide!

Arrived last year, great journey down, set up tent in Houx Annex, mobile goes off,
important client has decided he wants to take himself and his band to do
a TV show in the USA.

Project grows larger by the minute and with no power back up, it's off to a
local hotel for the night, which became two, then three, then four...

'Star' departed at 2pm Saturday, so I made it back for the start!

I never set foot inside my tent, not once, but despite a large hotel bill (paid by client)
I was at least able to stay and see the race rather than do an
instant return from Le Mans to the UK upon arrival.

Why oh why do I have to take work with me.

Oh dear !

Most of my professionnal surroundings (Building industry) are involved in LM (they build the track, the GS, the pits, everything !)... they even invited me to qualifications' eves (but I've got other obligations)...

And they all know that I'm not free for the race week-end (friday/saturday/sunday). Phew !

Hi Fab

Makes me wonder why we do it it sometimes!

Hope you manage to catch some racing action.
