JAPANESE AUTO EXTRAVAGANZA

JAE is going to Le Mans

“The nearest thing to JAE I can think of” is how JAE Director John Fuggles described the Le Mans 24 hour race. Okay he wasn’t talking about the JAE world famous IKO or the all day and night race of Le Mans, rather he was talking about the atmosphere and the way it has become the ultimate social weekend. Now, with two Japanese manufacturers competing in the LMP1 class it makes even more sense for JAE to go to Le Mans!
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world's oldest active sports car race in endurance racing, held annually since 1923 in France, and is considered to be one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world. The race is organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) and runs on the Circuit de la Sarthe, a circuit containing a mix of closed public roads and specialist racing circuit meant to test two aspects of a car and driver. The circuit, in its present configuration, is 8.47 miles long, making it one of the longest circuits in the world. In 1991 Mazda won, Johnny Herbert was one of the drivers and there have been two Japanese drivers in winning teams; that is for LMP1. Since then Toyota have been trying to win the LMP1 category for a number of years and of late Nissan have cleaned up in LMP2 – last year their engines in all top five places. For 2015 Nissan and Toyota are out to win and knock Audi off their perch.
The trip to Le Mans will include a dedicated camping area, route to/from with stop-offs and of course the race itself. Of course in typical JAE fashion there might be a BBQ or odd beer too! We will also be on hand to show you around the old town, the Drivers Parade for those that want it, and much much more. We can even arrange grandstand seating for you.
If you are interested and have not yet registered please send an email to one of the JAE team: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.@japcarclub.org
See you at JAE Le Mans in June 2015!
