Le Mans Classic 2002

"Maseratis return to Le Mans!"

Maserati Club member Simon Lees-Milne was lucky enough to make it to this prestigious event and has kindly sent me these photographs in order that we unfortunates, who were unable to attend, may share in the atmosphere of what appears to have been a fantastic event. Roll-on 2004!

Thank you Simon!
