Sad news, Danish driver Allan Simonsen was tragically killed on Lap 3 of the race, when his Aston Martin hit the barriers at Tertre Rouge.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends - RIP

A friend of mine competed in British GT a few years ago. Went to many races, and saw Allan Simonsen race in the same series. He was a very fast driver, clearly very talented. Never spoke to him face to face, but saw him on many occasions in and around the paddock. No doubt an absolute professional.

Le mans not a bad little road trip. Not too far and good for a few days getaway! To me though its generally noisy car followed my noisy car (and a few beers). Dont normally know too much about the race details! More an experience!

Also quite fancy the Spa GP. Not been to F1 yet.
