Unloading the Charger at the racetrack and working on it to get ready is also part of the good fun of vintage racing. Actually, it is one of the moments that I cherish a lot on a race week-end, because the cars are all in one piece and everybody is happy to be here.
Racing at Le Mans Classic is always a special thrill, as you zoom down the Mulsanne straight towards the tight chicanes at over 180 mph, but being there with good friends sharing the passion make it a special week-end. Martin, Marion and Gernot joined us from Munich. Being hard in the wool Porsche fans, they enjoyed the Le Mans Classic week-end to the fullest!
We just got this great shot in from Quirin Schoen and had to publish it right here on the Olympia Charger Blog. As you can see, our cornering speeds improved so much thanks to the sticky Michelin slicks, that we almost lifted the inner tyre! On top of this, it felt great to be back racing with the 3.0 RSR Porsches!
We had a nice surprise for our VIP guests at the chateau, thanks to our new sponsor Herrenfahrt. Each received a super cool care set, with high end carnauba wax, a towel, a sponge and wooden applicator spoon, as well as some detailer with incredibly deep shine capacity in a handy bottle.
We tried it out ourselves and were simply amazed by Herrenfahrt's quality. You have to try this at home!
Getting to Le Mans is an adventure in itself, or at least it is where the adventure starts. This year, we chose to drive all night from Heidelberg. The Dodge Charger was already at Le Mans, as the 24 Hours Museum got it there for the american celebration during the modern 24 Hours race.
