    Just got back from Le Mans today, and I haven't seen a motorsport thread in this section.

    Hope you had a great time! Did you get any sleep?!
    These are some of mine from last year (with my sister's point and shoot, didn't have my dSLR at that time). Went with a pal of mine who's dad was in the LPM2 class, they ended up winning!
    This is him crossing the line:

    My photos aren't great 'artistically', but I think they capture the atmosphere.
    I love your photos, especially the 3rd one, and would love the chance to go again with a 'proper' camera.

    Yep that is Chris, only met him the once, was supposed to hook up at Goodwood last year but I ended up writing my car off on the way there... not my fault I hasten to add :D
    Seemed like a really nice guy, what sort of racing do/did you do?

    Yeah Chris and Alex were both sound lads. I raced against Alex in Formula Honda over here and the he went to Formula Renault and I went to the USA to race in Barber Dodge Pro Series / Toyota Atlantics. Did that for 12 months till my budget ran out and came back but not been able to raise the money to do anymore since.
