PostSubject: Whats your craziest Endurance experience?   Sat Jan 06, 2007 2:27 pm

There are loads of crazy moments in World Endurance and we've all heard of apocryphal tales regarding pitlane chicanery...I remember Bikeshires' towering (and totally illegal) endurance supertank, firemen at one track dowsing a massive petrol spill in the pitlane with water instead of sand - which would only move the fuel on top of the water all the way down the pitlane drainage system, the start countdown in Mandarin in Zhuhai that was an excuse to run for the bike well before the start of the race...

...but you lot must have MUCH better tales!

Maybe someone holds the record for holding the refuelling rig over the bike while another team member took their time fixing something...who could beat Chubbs in the "fuel handling" department?

And what about all those stories the fans have?

We've seen clouds of smoke from burning tyres make the Bol d'Or look like a WW1 battleground, fields of mud littered with exploded engines in the camping grounds, tales of derring-do on the way down to and back from events, entire weekends disappearing from our lives....

Not a particular moment, in fact, but some facts wich make that I love this sport.
I 'm a "24h of le Mans" fan's since many years now and some nice things happend in my life because of this.
First, many years ago, as I was at the technical check, a guy asked me to take a picture of his son, sitting on the bike n22 (french police's team). I did it and we stayed friends. Some years later, this guy became team manager of a little team, only racing at Le Mans (during three years), and so as he didn't forget me, I was invited to live this crazy experience.
In 2006, still at Le Mans, I heard that a slovak team was there. I just started to learn slovak in december 2005, so I tryed to have some contact with this team ,but only to know if my pronounciation was good. Finally we stayed in touch and I sent them some pictures that I took about them, during the race. In september, I decided to go to Nevers to support this team, and I was very surprised when I arrived there : the team manager invited me for the whole week.
I often say that endurance is like life, with his good and dark side, and endurance also wrote some nicest pages of my life : I found some great friends because of it

Merci Gerard

The beer party@zolder was crazy enough...


this together with the SERT exhaust system put on a megaphone


(the exhaust part was picked up out of a garbage container in the neighbourhood of the SERT pitbox )
This part was thrown away after SERT1 caught fire during the qualifiers @ saturday....anybody who remembers ?There are no pictures of the kitagawa bbq , he suddenly decided to organise @ turn1 in june.

cheers study
