6 months down…Posted: December 12, 2011
Out of sheer boredom and the fact there’s nothing on TV tonight, I decided to finally finish watching my DVR recording of the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. It occurred to me watching the final laps, watching the clock count down to 0:00…it’s been 6 months to the day since the race.
My immediate thought: I’ve only got 6 months to plan 2012.
Since this summer – my first race – a week hasn’t gone by that I haven’t thought about the race. That I haven’t thought about meeting the Ten-Tenths crew. That I haven’t thought about seeing the sun come up and watching the checkered flag wave. And it seems like a blur.
After Christmas and New Years, I’ll start piecing together the 2012 trip with some slight modifications. I’ll go earlier, stay longer, and know where to go.
