    Bloody hell that's a lot of Razzas! And those GT's :cool: I can't wait to get out to Lemans, they're my favourite class in that race.

    the pictures are great because he's a great photographer, not because he has a great camera :)

    Shame you can't transmit the sound of the Ferraris through the photos.

    Ferrari V8 = greatest sound ever

    Yep, it doesnt sound like a V8 though, it still has the ferrari scream.
    Kind of a cross between V8 and ferrari exhaust sound trickery.

    Nah, pick of the bunch this weekend were the 'vette and the Lambo in the FIA GTs. Barely even noticed the Ferraris compared to the noise those two made.

    Superb pics Joe!


    Best sound by far was the 'vette (although the panoz sounded "odd")

    Best smell was to be found in the "ferarri challenge" tent (which we still weren't sure we were supposed to be in :p)

    Best looks definately go to the Aston Martin DBRS9 that we all had a good snoop around!

    Oh and the Pit-Lane walkthrough was absolutely astnoishing, its a shame you werent there for that Joe.

    They were always second for me, the Saleens just sound so sexy, that rumble just makes your spine shiver.

    Aint been to a GT race for a while though.
