I must say so ... :D
Not too far from circuit , next to Arnage , and quiet enougth to get a real rest.
The place is in fact the interior of training track for horses ... and you better be very carefull in the morning when driving across : these animals are bloody quick but don't have any brakes !
Few limited spaces , but once the responsible knows you , that's OK.
And btw , it's still LMC photo thread !
Christian. :mrgreen:

Christian,
That looks like a very tidy camping site (unlike the CLOGsite).


In this picture we (almost, due to the smoke) see our chef de cuisine preparing a "strictly vegetarian" braai. For the benefit of our wives I took a photograph of a healthy salad (which was the only food photo they saw).
Brian was elected to the prestigious position of "CLOGchef for life" back at LMC08, when he achieved that perfection of sausage "cooking" which comprises charcoal on the outside and rare on the inside. Actually, I made that up; the food was good.

You , guys , found the necessary time to do a BBQ whatever the time , weather ...
But allways ; security first !
Thru the smog, I see that Brian did not forget its extinguisher ... even if left handed!
At our familly village , no such festivities ... mainly because the lack of space of our cars (this year ,I had to find space for helmets first , before the rest!), and because we simply not think of it previously !
So , we are making the caf?-restaurants's fortune arround Arnage!
Cheers ,
Christian. :mrgreen:

Love the pics Pete. It is cold and snowy here in Minnesota. Your pictures help dealing with Lotus withdrawal.

What I find remarkable about this photo is that we are right down the front end of the grid. This on a circuit which includes the long straight towards Mulsanne- just shows how much these little cars can make up under braking and thro' the corners. Lots of heavy metal way way back in the middle of the grid.

It was hot!
