OOPS EDITORS NOTE: See what happens when I deal with French 🙂
I got my man ( s) wrong so correction please note: the crash was at the American le man series and the Petit Le Mans will be October 2nd ( see end of post)

As regular readers know my cousin’s son –Luke Hines -was over here racing in the American le Man series. We managed to get to Mansfield to see the action. I sat with Luke’s mum , Tina – in some ways it was easier on the nerves as the vehicles roared around the circuit- just seeing part of the track with the live action.

When we arrived back at the pit we saw there had been some damage done to the car- that could only mean one thing – Mum Gulp!

However , nothing like this- this is what happens when you are clipped when doing 161 mph…….

As for Gavin– well if Nag Nog has anything to do with it he will remain in the “plastic wagon class” -1 Nag- Nog power only!!!!

NEXT RACE: Petit Le Mans, Road Atlanta, GA
SERIES: American Le Mans Series
DATE: October 2, 11:15 AM ET
DURATION: 10 Hours

    With both a husband and son who race Formula Vee and some of the speeds they reach, I spend all their race days with my heart in my mouth – bit like I did when watched our daughter do the swords many years ago! And the son also races motorbikes – one of which he came off a couple of weeks ago breaking his collarbone. After the hospital trip I finally spat it and said that ‘enough was enough’ only to be reminded that he was 30, not 13!! Errhhh
    Lucky Luke indeed
