Towards the tail-end of 2021 we were in a bit of a panic trying to obtain the data for this new range of ACO approved corner stickers before our design deadline was up. Thankfully John Hindhaugh at Radiolemans kindly put us in touch with Andrew Cotton from Racecar Engineering, who in turn spoke to Richard Westbrook from team Glickenhaus, and Le Mans 2021 Hypercar driver
The first thing I always say to people when getting StickeredUp4LeMans is that it’s the overall effect you are after. Don’t worry if the application isn’t 100% perfect... Getting stickered up is meant to be fun, so enjoy it!
With just a few hours to go until the start of this year's (virtual) 24 Hours of Le Mans, we talk to Mark Chorley, one of Pure Motorsports drivers in this year’s race, who gives us an insight into the phenomenon that is iRacing…
StickeredUp4LeMans' man on the inside gives his thoughts from the opening rounds of FIA WEC & ELMS at Silverstone
Having spent 6 days last week watching and then officiating at both rounds of the championships at Silverstone, I am very pleased to report that despite the doom and gloom comments made at the end of last season regarding departures and changes, both championships opened their seasons with good, strong races.
Glory, tragedy, despair, happiness, relief, exhaustion. As always, this race had them all, and it took all of the 24 hours to tell the story.
To come just 3 mins and 20 seconds away from their first win, after previously coming second, four times, Toyota must have dreamed they finally had it in the bag, only for it to turn into a nightmare. And one team’s nightmare becomes another team surprise, with Porsche completing another lap and with it take the chequered flag of victory...
To celebrate our first Le Mans season as "StickeredUp4LeMans" along with Ford's 50th Anniversary since winning Le Mans with the iconic GT40, our very own super-talented Michael McMenemy is drawing this beautiful image which, when finished, will show the 3 Ford GT40's which crossed the line in 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in June 1966.
Most people know that the world's greatest race was first run at Le Mans in 1923, organised by the Automobile Club de L'Ouest but, do they know where the teams come from and how they gain entry into the ‘main event’? For any newcomer to the sport it can be rather daunting so we’ll try to make a little sense of it all…
It’s Monday morning as I type this, it’s grey, chilly and raining outside, but am I feeling blue? Not one bit of it! As today is the day for gathering everything together, packing the motorhome, sorting out my paperwork, and starting to build the excitement to 3 days of on-track action at the end of the week at Silverstone.
After a winter of relaxation, catching up with all the delayed D-I-Y projects of home, we finally come to the stage when we can finally get out to the track and start listening to the high pitched whistle of the lesser spotted Audi R18, the elusive Toyota TS50 and the fleet and nimble Porsche 919!
