Matt, I did remember the CA tee shirt deal, only blowing off steam! I will "pass" on the generous offer, I am in danger of becoming a tee shirt junkie the way things are these days, so many good ones around. Very kind offer anyway, that is one of the great things I find around the Le Mans "sites" lots of good banter and great subjects for discussion. And very friendly people, see you in the shampoo bar on Sat evening!  Cheesy

Oh go on then, I'll have the socks as well then...


How big are the Gazebos, will they be good enough to bring home for the back garden, or will they be left for the pikeys?

Own brand beer? I like it, some of that too ta.

OK I went trawling through the net to find them! Google Magic!

They made it to Rome but didn't finish as planned at Salerno. Rome is some achievement on little  Honda 90's. Bigger loonies than me, even. There is a photo of them at Pisa, by the leaning tower. They had a blast around the track at Le Mans before they left, 50mph... Smiley

I think it's time that Nick and I found out where the shampoo bar is. We knowthe ACO Welcome Area. Where d'we go from there? Map anyone? Huh


Here you go!!

There's loads of useful information here;action=display;threadid=274

Thanks jpchenet, I know now, just up the slope from the ACO Welcome area near Dunlop bridge-ish! OK? We'll be there in our tee-shirts. Not shining and polished though, possibly just upright!!!

Still trying the durned pengin, up to 321.1 now. Allowing for all the "misses" I'm probably on a "true" reading of 1.1

Damn penguins... 314.5 is my best... Miss most of them, can't be accused of wiping them out the way I play, YET! Angry

I went Pompey - Le  Havre last year (to the race, silly) and sitting in the Club lounge I was reading the freebie AUTOCAR or Classics monthly , whatever about some guys from England that were going to ride pizza bikes from Uk to Italy on the weekend of The Race intending to scrounge the ingredients from some restaurant and deliver it unannounced to somebody in Italy. It said that they were going via Le Mans and intended to be at the race before the rest of the trip to Italy.

As andynick and I set off into the Fench adventure (first time driving in France for us) we set off into the overnight darkness intending to stay overnight at Gace en-route. Toodling along we passed the said group on their Honda mopeds and gave them a hearty wave. About twenty minutes later in the dark (on God knows what road, I'd become lost in France by then [hencethe nickname!] ) they pobbled past us while I was losing some unwanted on voyage extra liquid in the dark. A shout and a wave and they were gone again. Ten minutes or less later we passed them again, horn blonking and waving like the pair of loonies I am. Got to Gace, went to bed and drove down fresh on Saturday morning. When we were in the circuit near Tertre Rouge in the evening we met up with them and had a chat. They said that the security at the circuit were being less helpful than necessary and were last seen pushing the mopeds towards the Dunlop Bridge vicinity.
End of long story, anyone know how their adventure panned out? Huh

I sorta hope they made it to Italy Smiley

Thanks DaveH, XP does more for me day by day!

If le mans SPS is having the red one, can I have the red one with writing on it, please? Any old transfers will do! Bloody hell what a treasury, In two hundred years a beautiful girl will tell tales of those cars to prevent herself being flogged off to some rich git, or dagged off to bed or summat!

Bloody hell..... Cool

That is great reading!

It is a great article, but... help, tell me how to actually read it I can only see the fantastic photos! Do I have to do something technical? I would love the words to go with the pics, all I get is a blur of pseudotext. The cars look amazing... and the dust... (no its not amazing, I get dust under my bed that's better than that!) Cheesy

What's the plan Robbo. Three minis ready to travel down in 2005?? One White, One Red, One Blue??  Smiley

We will strip it out , remove old A series , ad in 1400cc K series lump from a broken Rover ,put on  a flip font, leave the origional 1000 gear box in, strip interior, replace with roll cage and baby seat ( for Gold Fish and JO jO ) then give it a rally spec workout , and finally nice paint job and the obligatory Union jack roof job.

well thats the idea...


 I like the "remove the  A and bung in a K" bit, but I amn't convinced you  will get the K to do more than perch ungracefully on top of that 1000 cc gearbox!

I think you will have to persuade the whole K series drive train into the hole. It can be done but I'm buggered if I know enough to helps ya. Metro transplant looks likeliest, then use the 1400cc K to burn the balls off most convoy bound stuff heading Sarthe-wards.

Good luck and have fun.

Now it's all gone scary... How the hecky thump am I gonna get a couple of Marshall stacks, and me amps and the old Telecaster into a midget this year? Was only room for andynick and me and a toolkit last year. Oh bollocks, that's it for the spare wheel and the toolbox then.


No, no way, live moosic can't be compulsary, I'm glad I'm in Houx Annexe this time...

1889  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:Peugeot to return to Le Mans? on: January 24, 2004, 02:15:35 pm

To be that casual about travelling at 406mph, maybe they had better use that driver too. I wonder if he can keep it up all day and night....?

I wonder if I should have asked... Tongue

All he needs now is Natalie Portman for his "co-pilot"!!


Wrong, I need Natalie as MY co-pilot (sorry Nick, but you have to have priorities)
Bit of a spotter" the title for this thread, isn't it? Is that how you spell tosser? I dunno about Han Solo, reckon he will be All Solo, for the rest of time...
