Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

That was the highlight of the race ! Our grandstand was going loopy, shouting and screaming whenever they came near !
We saw an Aston a few cars behind a Corvette in the queue for the Eurotunnel last night and asked the driver if they were going to dive in front of the Corvette just before the train
Amazing race though. Roll on next year !

The TV coverage was only about Porsche and their crew at that point, but the commentators were going mental

The big screens were showing most of it and as you say, the RLM commentators were going mad
Pretty amazing racing though. 24 hours and they are still scrapping on the last lap !

Camperflage made its annual pilgrimage to Le Mans, its 11th trip so far.

Mad race, always an epic.
