... What a week-end!
The weather was with us , the races were all good , with many occasions to see a Lotus on track ... and the best is for everyone of each Lotus owner having its car on display , the two prices for the best display and historic interrest ...
Our president , Jean-Pierre Genoux-Prachex gave the trophee to the Lotus Historic Register , as they deserve it for the diversity of cars being presented.
But my brother wanted to make a picture ...
Image
French & brit colors ...
Image
Elan's , Elite's & Eleven's...
Image
And on track , my friends J.-P. Lajournade & D. Bachard manage to finish their first 24H du Mans Classic ...

Doug , I know that you have now some cosmetic work , but we will be waiting for you in 2010!
Christian.

Elansprint71 ,
Just use this link:
http://www.imageshack.us/
Then , You will have to learn how to upload a picture (not too big , the original document !) and my advice is if necessary , resize to 800X600 (15 inch monitor) and desable pict information and select the "Hotlink for forums (1)" ligne. Use preview to see results before submit . That's it !

Thanks for your kind words Christian, good to catch up with you again.

I assume most of you guys had a look at one sad Elan with a nasty nose at the Classic. Sorry to let the side down, with a not so good looking car, after a coming together with a TR in the horrendous rain on thursday. Hopefully it won't be too long before it is put right.

Brilliant, What a superb event. Sorry that I couldnt get in to the lotus parking on the Bugatti circuit and meet you all. For some reason the ACO sent me a pass that would only get me in with the cobras and mustangs so I left the car on Karting Nord. 1200 miles and 40.6 mpg and no problems at all. Roll on 2010
