Cool story. What restaurant?Arrived in Paris a few hours ago... What a week here in Le Mans! Ford went WAY overboard on the hospitality suite for all of the GT owners and guests of Ford. Also had a great pit row suite right above the Ford GT's pits... An amazing experience to watch this historic race. The Ford family... All of them are so kind and polite... Spent a lot of time in the suite with the GT owners... Even came back after the race and celebrated with all of us... Took photos, signed autographs, drank champagne with us and talked with all in the room. It was also great reconnecting with old and new GT friends while at the race.
Great memorabilia and clothing while at the suite as well... Lots of new goodies to place in the GT Ga RAJ Mahal at home. Lots of autographs.... Even Chip Ganassi's. Feel real bad I missed Raj for his autograph.
After the race a few of us went to an out of the way highly rated restaurant for dinner. All of the sudden Bill Ford walks over to our table of 7, all in Ford GT clothing, and takes a photo with us and chats for a while before heading back to his wife and son Will and a few other guests. This Ford family is a real class act!
After a few days in Paris we will take the long flight back home to recuperate.
Thanks go out to all the Ford Family (Bill, Edsel, Henry III), Dave B, and all the dozens of Ford team members that made our trip and time at Le Mans a VERY memorable and historic experience that will not be forgotten. Soooo happy we decided to make the trip!
Look forward to Rally 11 !
