Does anyone have any photos of the 1990 Le Mans race, specifically of the C2 winning Spice 89c driven by Mike Youles?

Mike has very few shots of the car, or indeed him on the podium next to Brundel, Price Cobb and John Neilsen. It was of course the pre-digital age.

many thanks in advance

 

Gary (with a request carried over from another forum).

I'll see what I have got from 1990 Gary, don't think there are any podium shots but I might have 1 or 2 of the #116 in action,

There doesn't seem to be many shot of this car around. Here's a nice shot of the rear :

(Though from the comments Mike Youles has already been in touch with the owner of the picture).

 

Here's another from a French forum :

1990 was the year I took fewer photo's at Le Mans than usual, so that I could compete in a 24 hour race a week later, no #116 in my collection I am afraid :(

Many thanks for all the feedback. I will send a direct link to this thread (when I get home this evening) to Mike. Hopefully seeing him early in January too.
