Writing to you from the Eurosport commentary booth here at a very hot Le Mans, and still in awe of the spellbinding lap we saw last night from Toyota driver, Kamui Kobayashi, to seal pole position for tomorrow's race and smash the all time lap record here at this most daunting of circuits. In an evening which saw countless records smashed across the classes, Kamui's lap was far from the only one worth celebrating, but the sheer pace of it will leave it etched in the minds of all who witnessed it. My hat is firmly tipped - 'chapeau' Kamui!
So here it is, as promised, my review for Heritage Aston Martin dealers, Nicholas Mee & Co, of the brutal Aston Martin V8 Vantage 'Le Mans'. Appropriately timed as we look forward to this weekend's 24 Heures du Mans, I only wish they'd have let me keep it for the journey down. We had one helluva time shooting this car, I thoroughly enjoyed it - and frankly was blown away by its versatility. You can read my full review in their excellent magazine, Full Bore (download it here), but first - turn your speakers up, and enjoy the full film review below.
