Drivers Parade

We managed to get to Le Mans and find the Corvette Corral by lunchtime on Friday. We had heard that some of the Corvette Racing drivers were going to be there in the early afternoon.

We got to park our Corvette in a special area with lots of other Corvettes including the new C7.

We were even luckier to get to be part of the Drivers Parade. We drove to the centre of Le Mans and parked up with all the other participants. There were lots of interesting cars to look at.

I loved these child sized cars, still a bit big for me though!

Then it became very exciting when all the drivers came out. We spotted Mark Webber.

We then drove through Le Mans and the big crowds of people. It was very excited even though it took a few hours!
