I had been dying to go to Le Mans since I was a kid. My friend Roger Stowers always used to go, but for whatever the reason, I never was able to make the trip. The music to the movie ‘Le Mans’ was always playing in my head as I pictured myself seeing the town come to life as the race week got under way. Fast forward to 2008.
To quote Mr. McQueen, “Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.” Truer words were never spoken.
