Le Mans Weirdos


While all hell broke loose at the TT (get well soon Guy and Conor), I was in Le Mans working at the 24 Heures du Man. The fans' cars are amazing, but it's the bizarre stuff that floats my boat. Like these weird beard French sportscars: Alpines, Panhards, Matras and whatever the hell the green thing is.
Then on the way home (in the LDV) I spotted this amazing VW Transporter in Cambridge services. There's a lot going on in that paintjob. GI

Ah, the much underrated 'Rolf Harris' camo job.

Speaking of paint jobs. When do we get to see Death Sprays efforts on your tracker?

Krook St, we're keeping it under wraps till it appears in the next issue. We're under orders from Mr Death Spray himself. G

Only 3 human beings have seen the new FT paint job. DSC, BP, & GI. It's going to be a SB#6 feature bike with no blog leakage, so you'll have to sit tight!

The green thing is actually a DB hbr5, DB stands for Deutsch Bonnet and it has a panhard aircooled flat twin.
