Here are a few more [photographs of the Daytona]. One is just after the race with people crawling on the car. Not sure if you know the story, but the car was driven by Luigi Chinetti, Jr. and Bob Grossman. They finished 5th and thought they’d won the GT class … until the French did some slight of hand. Somehow, the ACO decided the Ferrari wasn’t a GT car and awarded the class win to the 911S that finished 6th and was driven by … guess … two Frenchmen.

    Hi, this is a little tangential, but I have two questions about LeMans. First, did they rename the Mulsanne Straight? I could not find it so named on a map. I was fortunate enough to drive it with my family a few years ago while in the area on holiday; what a thrill, even in our rented Skoda Superb diesel!
    Second, plan to attend LeMans next year. Is it feasible to stay in Paris and commute out for the Saturday afternoon/eve, and then again on Sunday midday?
    Thanks for your response.
