RUSTYFRANCE '04            LE MANS 24 HOUR RACE

  Here we are then, another chapter in the RustyFrance theme of things. This year we went off, as the title suggests, to Le Mans for the 1st week (to watch the 24 hour race of course) then onto Montsereau for the 2nd week.

  This year we had Kev and Sue [Bluebays], Malc and Jenny [Jammydevil],  [Buggsybay {or Posh and Becks as some refer to them}]  (who could unfortunately only join us for the 2nd week) and of course ourselves on the trip.

  I'm going to retain the same scheme as last years and let the pictures do most of the talking.

 

 

  Here we have the 3 vans waiting to board the ferry at Portsmouth

Overnighting at Ouistreham (Caen)

This is the memorial at Ouistreham to all the men (and women) that lost their lives during the Normandy landings.

 2 pictures of the war cemetery and memorial at Douvres La Deliverance, it has particular significance for me as this is where some 60+ % of my fathers unit are buried, he and his unit were amongst the first "waves" of men to land on D Day. 

 I was, and always will be, grateful to Kev, Sue, Malc & Jen for bearing with me and giving time from their holiday so that I could honour my fathers colleagues on the 60th anniversary.

 The Rustybay "enclave" at Le Mans.

General view of the campsite, looks more like a "pikey" encampment in this shot.

 Malc said he was thirsty by the time we arrived, but this was ridiculous.

My/our "beermountain".

This one just proves that Sylv' does do some "housework" occasionally.

The Ferrari pits during the night practice session.

The start/finish straight.

To be continued.
