On the other hand, you can see a lot more on TV than you can sitting down in 10A/B, even with the big jumbotron up on the hill at the bridge.
Yeah.... the paddock access was what really made Petit Le Mans so amazing. I remember Stu's face the first time we saw Olivier Panis just strolling around.... and my shock when I turned around to see Ron Fellowes over my shoulder looking at the new Jaguar. Watching the Acura boys rebuild the car from a bare monocoque after Scott Sharp had binned it on Thursday was absolutely astounding, too. And yes, TV can't convey the smells of fuel in the pits nor the intestine-shaking roar of the Corvettes climbing the hill out of turn 1 at full throttle.
Why are you sitting at turn 10, you dolt? Sit at the Top of the esses, the screen is bigger.
