Nice picture . A great day for my friends , Jean-Pierre Lajournade & Dominique bachard .

A small video of the start : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=kZtWHSZdhy0
First time on big Le Mans circuit , sharing the same car . And because Dominique spend so many time to build , rebuild this Elan 26R cat. GTS , he lost all the positions that Jean-Pierre wins in pushing "to the fiber"...
But this week-end , competition wasn't the most important .
You can't be the engine man AND the driver .

Christian, are those the two drivers for the green car? If so, who's in the silver and black stripe car in the background?

Greg ,
4 Elan's entered at Le Mans Classic 2008' :
#6 : J.-P. Lajournade / D. Bachard (light green-white/black stripes) , finished 6th
#51 : Jean-Jacques MEY (metal blue-white twin stripes) , finished 33th
#58 : Stephen DUDLEY (BRG- yellow stripe) , finished 8th
#70 : Stephan SCHRAUWEN (metallic light grey- dark blue stripe), finished 4th

Jean Pierre said :"Driving alone is a definite advantage ... No mattter it take the same time in the pit ... on track the second driver still had to meet the car and the others , the track conditions ..."
I spend some time with Mr Dudley , alone in the boxes with its Elan he drove on the 2008'TourAuto . He said that he was used to drive Rosso steel and was litteraly mad of its new toy ... even with its astronomical oil consumpion.
Christian.

I've just added a load of Elan photos to my website:

If you click on galleries, you will see the LMC 08 gallery, click on thumbnail to enlarge.

Christian, if your friends want some photos of the car, give me a P.M.

Cheers,
Pete.

btw, I'll be adding more photos when time allows :twisted:
