Very, very sad indeed. Allan Simonsen was a very promising driver and the Aston Martins in the GT pro and GT am classes are the best. Rest in peace Allan.

When Spyker races again, Tom and I will surely go. Spa was amazing. I can only imagine how much better Le Mans is.

At Le Mans several winners were on display too. I love the Jaguar from the fifties.

Note the location of the speedo: fitted on the side as it has no function during racing. But readable (theoretically) when you are driving to and from the track on a public road.
