I have to regain access to the webspace my provider has for me (haven't used it for years) before I can do it, but as soon as I can, yes! I'm also still working on a few photos of other cars, among them the beautiful livery of the Rebellions, before they were repainted for Le Mans. To my regret, I didn't take a picture of the "Juliette has a gun"- message on one of the cars. The penny only dropped when looking at the picture at home...

As in "Juliette Has a Gun", an analogy for fragrance as a weapon of seduction or something deeper?

I initially felt the same, but then I remember the enjoyment I got from watching the in mid to late 90's - it's not dissimilar to that.

Just thinking of the Toyota's, Porches, Mercedes, the McLaren F1 of course, plus others. Amazing times, for me at least.

Well, whilst the new F1 cars are interesting, just look at what the new Endurance Racing regulations are producing.

Here's some renders of what Glickenhaus are producing. Stunning!

So, not only are Ferrari entering a factory hypercar, it's been announced that Porsche has teamed up with Penske to do the same. Exciting times!

Very nice. Will they actually end up looking like that?

Well, the regs allow for teams to have significantly different designs, a bit like the Ferrari's Aston, Porches etc look different in the GT classes. However, if you Google the Glickenhouse LMH that is up and running in testing, it's quite close to the above images.
