Thanks to our friends over at Ford we attended the incredible and world famous Le Mans race this year. GadgetsBoy came a long with us and we had a fantastic time!

Side note: If you ever go over to France we advise getting the EuroStar Flexi-Pass. It saved our skin!

It was a trip to remember and gave us memories to last a lifetime. Not only did we get to check out some amazing racing, which not only looked amazing, but the sound of racing is mind blowing! We got to drive some fantastic cars. Both in the way that they look, but in the sheer power that they possess.

What was different about this trip was that we drove the Ford Mustang GT. 5L V8 engine with a 453BHP! It turned many heads, leather interior, full of tech and a drop top! Not to mention the Bang and Olufsen speakers with 1000w of power! So not only did we look good heading over to France we had some fun on the way there!

The guys also said that the fuel consumption was very very impressive for a V8 engine!

Their Stay

The guys stayed in an incredible mansion which you can see below, it was beautiful. Everything was just the right mix. Perfect car, perfect trip, incredible weather and a beautiful mansion! The guys also got driven around the track in cars to experience what it’s like for a racing driver who was competing in the race. A lot of G’s were pulled and they weren’t even going as fast as the main cars. Although that’s because they had to stay a certain distance between the other people who were invited. Even still it gave the guys a glimpse into what it’s like to endure the Le Mans race!

Le Mans

Le Mans is the world’s oldest endurance motor race and has been held annually every year since 1923 near the town of Le Mans.  The race is one third of the crown jewel of motor sport racing. The other two jewels in the crown being the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix.

The guys really enjoyed their time and had a lot of fun learning about Ford and Le Mans. It really was a time to remember.
