I wonder if Zak got a staff discount on purchasing two 720S'. I'm awaiting the MC20 announcement in the new year...
I'm going to guess that a Macca staff discount would be worth a lot less than you'd get by arguing on a forecourt.

Still, be good to see 'em racing. Better yet if they can squeeze some good sound out of them.

I’d like to think that they’ll be back in proper racing but I’m not holding my breath. Based on past form they’re more likely to put the money into golf, tennis or the Chinese tiddlywinks championship

Will you boys be making your annual outing to LM24 this year? I haven't seen the usual thread on it

Ms Fifty and I have tickets so would be good to see some familiar faces for a catch up

Excellent! And yes, there'll be a (not very) diplomatic mission to la France to allow the locals to sample of rejoice in the culture of a Sports Maserati outing.

Well that is a pretty accurate description.

I'll drop you a message closer to the time would be nice to see you guys again.

@outrun, if you are attending you can have a look at the BMW Alpina you convinced me to buy

Excellent! Our route south is still in planning (@conaero will be throwing darts at a map of northern France to see where we pull up in a cloud of dust and shattered tranquillity) but will arrive somewhere in the vicinity of Le Mans on the Thursday. We'll most likely be using Arnage for beer and baguettes and general mucking about near the track.

After Le Man's, I'm thinking of heading south, after Matt has thrown his darts at northern France, I'll chuck a few arrows at southern France. I'm no Luke littler but any suggestions?

I thought it was more scientific. Nope we are banned from there, there, there and there. We got away with it there and have never been there.

Antibes, Valbonne, Mougins then through Nice to Beausoleil, Cap Ferrat and Monaco, day trip into Italy to San Remo, then back up to Englandshire via the Alps and skirting Geneva and through Reims on the way back.
