British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I would gladly pay money to go to a museum to see more of that!

That is real Art to my eyes.

Very nice looking. It must have taken a long time to make and a lot of cash. Those transporters alone would of cost a fair bit of coin.

Wow! Just wow! I'm going to have to pull out my DVD copy of LeMans and watch it tonight. There's something about that era of racing that is so appealing to me.

Fantastic!
It seems an image of the movie "Le Mans", where at the beginning of the film shows the preparations of teams for the big race.
Many cars, many trucks, mechanics, pilots, public, tires. Nothing missing.
