Racing at Le Mans: night work if you can get it...

We know weíve been rabbiting on about this a lot on PH is recent weeks, but the annual pilgrimage to Le Mans is truly one of the highlights of the year here at PHHQ (that and editor Chris-Rís annual haircut). And itís now only a week away.

And, if itís not too clumsy a turn of phrase, one of the highlights of said highlight is the chance to watch some night racing.

Whether you crawl through the undergrowth clad in full camo gear, sneaking past marshalsí posts on the Mulsanne straight to get your night-time kicks (we would not of course condone such behaviour), or prefer to soak up the atmosphere of the pit straight, with its frantically busy pit crews and echoing engine wails, the sight and sound of racing in the dark is pretty epic.

We hope todayís POTW brings some of that excitement to your computerís desktop (even if it is only dusk)... and you might recognise a certain logo on the wing end-plate of Mr Mansellís motor from last year (although perhaps the less said about that performance the better).

And for those of you heading off into western France next week Ė weíll see you there!
