Finally finished my photos of the 2017 Le Mans 24 hours! Not so happy as I hoped to be, because of a foot injury on friday it was hard to walk around the track this time. And I had a lot of troubles with the fences this year, normally this is no problem at all.

Porsche secured its 19th Le Mans 24 Hours win after a gruelling race of attrition. In a race where only two of the LMP1 cars made it to the finish, it was the #2 Porsche that came through to score victory. The best of the LMP2s, the #38 DC Racing Oreca 07, had assumed the lead when the #1 Porsche stopped out on track. The battle for GTE Pro honours boiled down to a straight fight between old rivals Aston Martin and Corvette, which had been running on conflicting strategies but converged in the final hour as the #97 Vantage made its final stop early.

Love all of these but #6 is superb. Reminds me of my first visit in the 70's when we walked across to the Mulsanne and watched at night - could see the turbos glowing red hot on the Porsches!

Thanks! I think the circuit was a big different in the 70's as well... you could almost stand on the circuit I guess?

Stunning pictures you've made! Congrats!
Just a question: Did you have a media accrediation to make these photos?

We actually stood next to the Armco! Even as 17 and bit year olds we realised it was dangerous for us and potentially distracting for the drivers so didn't stay long. A memorable trip as four of us went down in a Capri 2.0S and took a few days to get there with various stops on the way. Took turns to sleep in the car or a small tent. Dug a tick out of one guys leg with a fork as we didn't trust French doctors ߘ Life was simple back then...

No, I had no media accreditation. Just a normal ticket and all photos are taken from public access areas, just as a standard spectator.
