Going to Le Mans to support the C5R's.:excited:
Will be a fun weekend ( 14-15 June ) with other Corvette clubs from Europe. Meet the drivers, BBQ, Miss Corvette contest :stick: ,
parade lap on the circuit with just Corvettes.....and lots of :cheers:
Well i'm back from le Mans and had a great time.
Met all the drivers and one of our guys did the parade lap thrue the town of Le Mans with 3 drivers of the #50 car on the back of his C5 vert.
We also joint in the parade lap with 100.000 people waving and screaming at you to rev or burn rubber.
Did one small burnout and the crowd got completly mad.....
and then punished by some official to stop doing that.
At the same time 3 more Vettes did a burnout.. busy day for the guy to punish all of us.
At the BBQ Dave Hill was a guest and picked one of our club C3 (68) #2 in show & shine.
Not all the pics are in, but here are some nice one's
(not dial-up friendly) of a 50th red and a special lemans edition.
You have to look close to see them on the track and going out of the pitlane, but IRL they sound and look great.
Lots of commercial poster around the circuit of the C5R.
hey pat..check out Corvette Quarterly..it explaines the export le mans editions....seems the Z06 is a States only car...so the lemans option is for the coupe on export...hood, decals and interior touches on the coupe instead of the Z06 like it is here
