Info that i received from spyker:

"The Squadron catering trailer will arrive on June 4 and the first mechanics
on June 5 th. On June 7, the team will be complete, and can start
preparations for the car.

The first training starts on June 10th (Wednesday), and Thursday, June 11th
there are training sessions. The race starts on Saturday 13rd."


I will be there on saturday and sunday (6th and 7th) to take pictures of the arrival of the teams. Monday till Wednesday I will be back in the Netherlands.

Wednesday evening (10th) or Thursday morning (11th) I will travel again to Le Mans to support the Squadron

Some people think; Dutchdude is crazy! But I think Le Mans is the most beautiful race event there is!

(f1 drivers are spoiled kids, Le mans drivers are the real legendary heroes)

LM85 owners should be there too. I hope they also bring their C8 to the scene and that they get captured by your camera

On addition to the schedule provided by Dutchdude:
Administrative checks and scrutineering for the Spyker will start on Monday June 8th at 16.10 (Administrtive checks) and 16.40 (Scrutineering) at the “Quinconce des Jacobins” in Le Mans.
The car and the drivers will be there and this is free to the public. Tension is building up during the week and since this is "only" monday the atmosphere is really relaxed and therefor provides
a very good opportunity to talk to the team and drivers!

Unbelievable! Fck! ShT!

I just heard that my press accreditation for Le Mans is not issued. Unbelievable because I now can't visit the Pit during the race and walk on the grid before the start. Last year I could do this and take beautiful pictures.

like this one:

I also desided to buy my Spyker at that moment because I saw Victor with that great white C8 Spyder in the Pit an hour before the race.
Without this meeting I might had bought a Ferrari.



And one Guess: Who kissed the driver (see lipstick)

Have you contacted Hans van Rennes? Maybe you two can work something out?

Most of the team arrived at Le Mans. The traditional 'pesage' of the Spyker on la Place des Jacobins is scheduled for Monday.
