Chartres,Porsche and the Le Mans 24 hours

Chartres Cathedral is one of the most magnificent buildings in the world and one of the most fascinating glimpses of it is when you drive back to Chartres from Le Mans on the back road -not the autoroute-and you suddenly see it almost popping out of a field of wheat as you approach Chartres.
I love Chartres and have stayed there many times en route to and from Le Mans.It's a good stop over location as it's half way between Le Mans and Paris and is pleasantly quiet in the evenings after all the day trippers have departed back to Paris.I particularly like to stay there on the Sunday night after the race and have a very welcome shower,a few cold beers,dinner and an early night and head into Paris the next morning --totally happy with the world.Maybe in 2014 when the Porsche factory team return to the fray it will be even better.Perhaps despite all the denials Mark Webber will be driving for them.It would be a lot more fun than being the team mate of that obnoxious little s..t Vettel.Here's hoping.

  1. Lovely shot John. Lemans is on my bucket list, so when the factory come back I feel I'm going to have stop talking about it and start doing it!

    I think I'll take your advice and stay in Chartres.
