The Isle of Man TT, isn’t the only big sporting event in the first half of June – although it is the only one where the TV coverage is sponsored by Bikesure (by the way, have you seen the special edition of influx to mark the Manx TT association?).
No. As all true motorsport fans will be aware the coming weekend is the 24 Heures du Mans, one of the greatest motoring spectacles on the planet.
For petrolheads, the anticipation is almost unbearable, but, luckily, many of the sponsors have provided some interesting things to keep us all entertained and whet our appetites.
Michelin have produced a virtual Le Mans Team Manager game again, which is an entertaining way to familiarise yourself with the setup in advance of the racing.
Peugeot, meanwhile, who have enjoyed unparalleled success at Le Mans in recent years, offer their own well-produced video in advance of the all new 908’s circuit debut. With ex-Formula One pilots like Anthony Davidson and Alexander Wurz in their team – in fact all six have some F1 experience – and a car that has already won the Spa 1,000km this year, they must stand a great chance.
Get those pro-plus at the ready …
