Uli´s Racing Legends Le Mans Classic 2012

Back from Le Mans Classic! With wonderful memories and beautiful moments ... Dear friends and collectors! Again three overwhelming days at the Sarthe are swinging in my memory. Thanks to all the great friends that visited my little stand near the entrance to the village central. When the event started calmly on the thursday, with some single cars pushed to their position of the Richard Mille collection opposite to our stand, nobody could guess how loud and emotional this weekend would become again. To me as a painter, the visit of all of you at my stand was just amazing. The Juan Manuel Fangio C-Type painting is sold to my friends from J D Classics, together with a XXL print of the argentinian with his hands at the wheel of the big cat. A commission from a member of the Beaulieu museum and a short visit of Alain de Cadenet were among the highlights of the weekend - as well as the wonderful moment when Colin and Helen Elstrop gave the former australian owner of their TVR Grantura - Leslie William Merrick - a copy of the painting as a gift for his visit at Le Mans. Emotionally also demanding were the phone calls of my good friend and 356 racer Christian Loch during the event. The whole mixture of joy and depression came over the phone, when he stated that they were 5th after qualification with their black Porsche with the yellow band... , or had just lost an engine, a gear or in the end all gears except the third - but made it to the finish line. This all together with fantastic people like Rick Hutter and Witney Belle to help me at the stand was the typical overwhelming Le Mans mix. Day by day now things appear from deep inside my brain and make me smile again. Moments like the wonderful dinner with my friend and also motorsport artist Jean Marie Guimarch at the house of former Kart champion Olivier du Moulin. Or the simple Kebap in front of our hotel opposite the train station, with hundreds of veteran cars passing us by late at night. Thanks to Julien Hergault from Le Mans Racing for the great interview. It is very nice to speak to professionals - I am looking forward to the pages they will publish about my art work in octobre (what an honour). I hope you all wear a smile on your face too.
