Nice Quote
« on: June 13, 2009, 03:08:33 am »
Can you tell me who it was, without google?

“And suddenly an English group on the right-hand side of the track, about 10 guys there had a handwritten sign: “Give us some ‘Oppo’(site lock). Well, I gave it so much ‘Oppo’ I spun it! Then the next lap another sign came up: ‘Now, fastest lap.’ And the third and last sign: ‘Crumpets and tea with the queen?’ So it was actually the most amusing Le Mans I had I think.”

I don't know who said it, but the quote alone gave me goosebumps.

Yes, you are my friend too, Caspar dude!   :D

Actually, Brian is probably more of an acquaintance than a friend, like you.  I spent some time with him at the last Rennsport (Porsche) reunion in Daytona, last year.  I also got to spend some time with David Hobbs who I met, of all places, in the loo!

What was funny was that I read the article that the quote came from, at work on Thursday!  The article was at the speedtv.com website under LeMans.  I would post the link, but I don't want to go there, as I am now watching the end of the race! :P

I know there's a time difference, but are those images rowing across the pond?

It's called a dvr, digital video recorder.  Quite handy. :)

 :o Great! How did you first meet/know these guys? Or was it that one one time at the event.
Because then it wouldn't be aquaintances, sorry, really.   :no: :rotfl:
