Thought I would attach some photos from the Classic Endurance Racing practice contained in the Le Mans Series race meetings. Some remarkable cars and if you like the look of them there is a CER support race to the Le Mans Series final round at Silverstone in September. Worth the visit if you like this kind of car. By the way the new Audi went well and was fastest in practice for tomorrows race.

Paul Knapfield has problems with his Ferrari 712 Can Am
Jean Guikas with the stunning Porsche 908/4
Roald Goethe Porsche 906 which I think is the ex-Dickie Stoop car.
The stunning Por5sche 936 driven by Jean-Marc Luco

Graham, it must be handy having le Castellet just down the road....
I believe Dickie Stoop did not progress beyond a 904, rather than a 906, probably regd YOU4, although he died in his 911S.

Purely for the record the winner of the first round of the Classic Endurance Racing at Paul Ricard was Patrice Lafargue with his colourful Lola T298 BMW from the thunfdering Porsche 936 of Jean-Marc Luc and the Carlos Barbot Lola T280DFV.

Shots of the winner and second place man below.

His 356 Carreras were registered YOU 4 & 5 HOT. He drove an RS60 Spyder and a 904 in 1964, but YOU 4 went to his Silver 911S, in which he died from a coronary thrombosis at Croft in May 1968, aged just 47.

Sorry to come back on this but I know many of the TNF enthusiasts are fans of Alain de Cadenet and Chris Craft and I was surprised to find that the Duckhams-Ford that they drove in the 1972 Le Mans race - finishing 12th- was out and looking immaculate in the hands of the seasoned French driver Olivier Cazalieres. Another one to look out for at Silverstone in September.

Languishing in the South of France as one does Graham, you can hardly be expected to know that said car appeared at the recent Race Retro at Stoneleigh Park on the stand promoting the Le Mans Classic. :wave:
