Lack of money made me skip a 2011 race, although I was also planning to go. Wanted to replace it with Imola WEC round then, but that also didn't happen. Funny, the event itself is not expensive at all, but for those who come from far away, expenses are much, much higher.

True. In the preliminary budget calculations our biggest cost would be the gasoline, seconded only by the peage and third probably beer

Speaking of Isle of Man TT, is there any possibility to watch it online somewhere? I miss it every year because can't find any good way to follow.

you mean there is no problem, because you cannot go?

Hah! This is country is officially bilingual! Do you think they actually teach French well in non-francophone areas though?

Definitely not!

Do you think I can speak it?

No! I can understand bits and pieces if it is spoken slowly, can read some basic french, and know some very basic phrases.

I wish I had been a better language student and French had been taught much better.

Well, I ain't an expert, and it is something I just got into more recently. But when I am determined, I will find streaming.

Mate couldn't do Le Mans, so nect year for that.
I've ghad to not ride the bike so TT out and for the same reason I'm nto able to race yet this season.
Reason being I'm getting old and adrenaline while racing has been hiding me doing damage. Physio has banned me till it's sorted.

Not being able to do any is a BIG PROBLEM Am going crazy !!!!

Gene will replace Bernhard, who is still recovering from a testing accident, at Le Mans as well.

All except for Montagny. Pagenaud is of course off for a full-season Indy drive.

Indeed. Never had any doubts that most of them will be taken by other teams after Peugeot has retired - their experience is very worthy.
