Like Chip said, I get there Thursday. I have my Ford gear packed and some Euros. I can’t wait to get there and see everyone for the final factory effort at Le Mans.

The excitement builds for our 4th one. It will be bittersweet being the last one but we'll think about that later. Can't wait to get back over there and see everyone. 5 cars to watch now, it just gets better.

That is an impressive array of racing liveries for this years race! Can't wait to see them on Friday!

I'll bet that Wynn's livery just pops in the sun!

Go Ford!

Should give Ford a few more Heritage Edition options for the final years of production. Just a guess.

Those wheels look great! Would be a nice option on the road car to do the center lock wheel from the race car. And the Michelin billboards, too!

Gentlemen,

I have notoriously bad luck with airlines losing my luggage (literally more than 50% of the time on both domestic and international flights) so this morning I checked our bags 2.5 hours before our flight out of Phoenix and we allowed a 3 hour layover in Atlanta so there wouldn’t be a problem transferring our bags there. Didn’t help as both of our bags are lost. But we are in Paris. In the 1970’s the first time I came here the people were less friendly and the city was much cleaner. Lately you can see this city deteriorating year by year. Looking forward to heading to Le Mans Thursday morning. Hopefully we’ll have bags by then!! The view from the room is lovely, at least there’s that. Cheers.

Chip

I remember the joke where the guy is at the airline check in counter... I would like this bag sent to Alaska and this one sent to Hawaii. The agent says sir, we can't do that... you are traveling to Paris... I said yes you can, you did it on my last trip without me asking!

Gentlemen,

I'm leaving early tomorrow morning for France, will meet up with DBK on Wednesday, Chris C. will arrive on Thursday. I know several more are on the way or about to depart to see the factory Ford GT team do battle one last time on the circuit that the new GT was built for. After all the speculation, anticipation, and enthusiasm leading up to the new GT and the Ford/Ganassi Team it's hard to believe that on Sunday the four Le Mans efforts will be over and part of racing history. I'm both excited and melancholic on this 4th and final trip to Le Mans. All good things come to an end, so here's to Ford winning this damn thing one more time.

So post up here and let us know if you're going and when you'll get there. And post photos and stories in this thread that we can all enjoy. I'll see you in France!

Chip

It's going to be good to see you all!!
Safe travels and godspeed they retrieve your luggage if it's lost. The airline misplaced mine last year and I was really concerned It was possible I would never see it again because it took 4 days to get it back. It's easy to replace a pair of 501 jean's, but rally shirts and original GT apparel etc, not so much.
