I remember the thread about this last year! I almost can't believe the pictures but it's too much work for them to be fake.

It'll turn the whole section into one long set of curves. Temptation will be to go into the last one too fast and there'll be more offs in the 'Esses' as they were.It'll also take away that big chunk of spectating area just down from the bridge on the outside. Such good memories from there!

The Bugatti circuit was boring and that corner was bad, but this is too much!

Might be worth going to the trials in May now....

My first memories of Le Mans are from 96 after a nightmare getting in to the campsite, including loosing reverse gear on my old 71 rangey and being directed through the middle of the village at one point!!!.

Was standing just past the bridge looking down into the esses, on the thursday eve qualifying.. It was awesome, just where any sane person would brake they banged another gear and floored it some more


Sadly no more...
