A bunch of us who didn't bring our cars had the opportunity to ride in the RS around the track. EPIC!!

Awesome!

What an experience to share for a lifetime.

The (relatively ) slow tour of the track really helps a lot to understand what it is made up of. Use of public roads is incredible.

The Mulsanne is really amazing. What a long straightaway. Imagine it without the chicanes, and imagine how much time the Stig would have for singing!

Pretty good racing lines as well!

Videographer was Roz with her phone. Her arms went numb from holding it up in the air for so long! Got several more short clips I'll post when I get a minute. My favorite is from Ford's satellite hospitality suite at the Mulsanne Chicane where you can stand just the other side of the catch fence and watch the cars whizz past into the turn. An amazing place and if I go back, most of my time will be spent there

Our parade lap yesterday. One new GT, the Robertson LM car, 15 GTs, and a bunch of Mustangs and Focus RSs. We were lucky enough to be right alongside the three 66 cars as they entered the track to lead the parade. Maximum speed of 120 allowed (some broke that rule a teensie bit).

A wonderful experince spoilt only by two of our UK GT owners who decided to ignore the strict instruction od 'no passing' and blew past everyone, creating chaos and yellow flags eveywhere. What a couple of prats, hope you read this and make some pathetic justification for your rude and unacceptable behaviour
