Area 4 at the Historic Le Mans 24 Hours Race 2017

Area Rep  | Published on 6/22/2017

 Area 4 members took advantage of the Club's partnership with 1st Tickets for a most memorable and thrilling Le Mans 24-Hours Race 2017.

L-R: Barbara & Anthony King, Ali with Graham Heane, supercharged GT8 of Paul Gerring with Gillian Fawkes, Jan Gerring and Area 4 Rep, Andrew Fawkes (the latter 4 in team shirts!)

The weather could not have been better (wall-to-wall sunshine) for camping a stone's throw from the inner circuit near the Dunlop Bridge and the Esses.

Area 4 photographers do their thing.

Aston Martin's brilliant victory on the last lap after 3,500 miles of racing was the most amazing finish to an amazing weekend!

A few celebratory drinks were in order (and use of the GT8 drinks tray).

Maybe an AMOC drinks mat would be in order!

There are also other entertainments at the Le Sarthe Circuit during the weekend...

They were probably a bit warm!

Thanks to everyone back at AMOC HQ who made this trip possible for us and to Brian of 1st Tickets and his enthusiastic team of smiley people who looked after us so well.

Here's to more Aston Martin Le Mans victories.... 2018?
