Relearning Le Mans on a sim | Thank Frankel it's Friday

It was my great fortune to get to race at the Le Mans Classic last weekend. I was driving for Bentley, in its own continuation ‘Blower’, alongside one of the 12 identical cars it has made and sold to some of its more well heeled customers. I was excited and terrified in almost equal measure: excited for fairly obvious reasons, terrified because if it all went wrong there are few stages more public in this business than this upon which to fall flat on my face.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
