That one probably was my first subject for some panning. I should pick that up again. Jidé was never on Le Mans, right?

I don’t think they were. TdF was more their thing. Ligier is known for Le Mans right? I should get some real racers from Guy.

MVS Venturi? I do think I have a GT Class LM contender for that. Haven’t shot it, just the roadlegal one.
