The chance of a lifetime, to be able to race the Eleven on the famous 'Circuit de Sarthe', a dream come true!

RACE REPORT - LE MANS CLASSIC (SEPTEMBER 2002)
A chance of a lifetime, to be able to race the Eleven on the famous 'Circuit de Sarthe',
a dream come true!

The Eleven raced here both day and night. Co-driver Don Hands and myself are very fortunate to have been able to race in such a beautiful car on this truly fabulous, evocative circuit.
Our thanks go to the organisers, Patrick and Sylvia Peter of SAVH for a wonderful opportunity.

How does one so big get into a car so small!! (Apologies Don!)
