Trip to Le Mans 24hr - June 14th-17th 2018

Ok, this IS planning.

Upon getting a lot of shame on facebook for my 414i purchase, on the fields of looks and reliability, I've dared everybody, and announced I will drive it to Le Mans for the 24hr of 2018.

This year I've done the drive on a 1972 Lancia Fulvia Coupè, then the Rover, with A/C, radio and some space to accomodate both my friend and our luggage, should be a piece of cake.

Anybody planning to go there? No chances to engage in a beer bottle wall challenge at the camping, though. We will stay in a B&B in the outskirts of the town

That's tempting but I was thinking of doing the LM classic if it's on every year
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

I will most probably do that too, but on a 1988 BMW 316i.

Tried to drive to LM classic in 2016 in the same Lancia Fulvia Coupè...broke the engine before reaching France. :headbanging

But the little red car has done it magnificently this year, after an engine rebuild.
