    Hello Hubert,
    thanks for sharing. I had expected Ford already this year. But
    we have to be patient. With Chip Ganassi the project is in good
    hands.
    So far we can observe the Nismos. I heard that in qualifying
    the best positions went to Porsche, Audi and Toyota.
    But 24 hours are a long time.
    I have reserved an good place in front of our TV.
    (I have good luck, in Germany football has
    hollidays in summer, so no discussion necessary at home.)
    I hope, we get some of our favourits through. For them the
    night will be long. For us, it might be short.
    Enjoy it!
    Werner

    Indeed, not the best qualifying time for NISMO's Le Mans debut, but they did acknowledge that they were still ironing out the wrinkles. Lots of excitement regardless!
    Cheers Werner!

    Hello Hubert,
    nice video. The sound of the engine reminds me of the short film "C' était un rendevouz" by Claude Lelouche. He had taken a
    film in the streets of Paris with a Mercedes. Later they decided that the sound of the Mercedes engine was not strong enough.
    So they made a sound track using a Ferrari. That sounded much better.
    The race this weekend was a surprise to me. Although Porsche was my favourite, I had expected Audi and Toyota much stronger.
    Bad luck for the Nismos. But the first time in Le Mans with a completely new car is usually for learning and not yet for winning.
    Hope they will return next year.

    Cheers Werner

    Indeed Werner. Nissan / NISMO have much to do for next year.

    Thanks for sharing the "C' était un rendevouz" story. I was on the same page when I saw this 360 video. Guess that's why many GT-R owners swap the exhaust as their very first mod.

    In the end Porsche did great and congratulations to them for their 17th win. And to brand ambassador Patrick Dempsey.

    Well, I enjoyed the Porsche 918 in the Gulf Design. But my dream is to see a 919 in the Gulf desing (sponsoring by Gulf accepted) to win the 24 hours of Le Mans. This would continue a story of earlier days. So the story of Steve McQueen, TAGHeuer and Porsche could continue.
    Best wishes
    Werner

    If you bring bungee cords you can actually carry a lot of cases of beer on the rear cargo shelf
