Thanks Jack.

I'm encouraged by this from the ACO "Whatever happens, the 24 Hours of Le Mans will go ahead this year."

That reminds me, I have yet to watch the films Grand Prix and Le Mans. It's an annual ritual for me.

It will be great if it can still go ahead, lets all keep our fingers crossed.

While it may go ahead this year (in 1968 moved to Sept due to civil unrest in Paris) there is no way it will happen in June. France at pretty much the same phase (give or take a week) as UK with Covid 19 and June predicted to be the peak. Plus French government taking a more hard line approach than UK.

No way Jose! Time for your planned articles to change, I wager a more historical perspective for the next 6months+

They've had civil unrest in Paris for a year, but all they've done is made a film of 1966. BTW, DVD etc out in a few days

I watched it.

That program explained a lot about the lack of a plot.

I can recommend the book: "A French Kiss With Death".
