LE MANS 1988

With the 2011 race fast approaching an image from one of the great Le Mans races .
A peep into the Joest Racing Blaupunkt Porsche facility at the 1988 Le Mans, on Saturday race morning ,with one of the superb Porsche 962s being worked on.
In fact 1988 was not to be Porsche's year -a TWR Jaguar won ending Porsche's glorious winning streak .
I was fortunate to have a paddock pass -the shame was that I did not have lots more film .By today's standards the work areas were basic,very crowded and untidy and the security was non existent . Great memories.
