Watchonicars @ Blancpain Super Trofeo @ Paul Ricard

We arrived at the Circuit Paul Ricard HTTT in Le Castellet for Rounds 7 - 8 - 9 of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.

 
Clear blue sky, not a cloud! The perfect weather to race! 
 
We have been quite excited all the way down from Switzerland because Watchonista will finally count on two cars from Team Autovitesse (Paris) for this weekend! 
 
Laurent Jenny and Remy Vauthier with the green Watchonicar n°19 and Cédric Leimer with the black/green n°63. Cédric is leading the PRO AM Championship!
 
Not only Super Trofeo races over the weekend. The powerfuls FIA GT1 will race on this amazing track. The Paul Ricard HTTT   (High Tech Test Track - http://www.circuitpaulricard.com) looks brand new and the SRO organization is always ultra professional.
 
The security is quite important and we missed a pass to enter…we waited few minutes and Laurent came to pick us up with his scooter!

SIHH 2011 Van Cleef & Arpels. Version intégrale.

A mesure que j'écris je m'éloigne de plus en plus des rives du reporting "objectif" pour aller voguer sur les étincelantes mers du journalisme gonzo.
Déjà, parce que l'objectivité est un leurre, ensuite, parce que le gonzo, c'est l'aventure, et l'aventure c'est l'aventure.
Je vous fait cette remarque, parce que cet article va être traité quasi-exclusivement au delà de la technique (from beyond, quoi!):

SIHH Van Cleef & Arpels 2011, Part 1/2

 As I write I move away more and more from banksof the “objective” reporting to go to sail on the sparkling seas of gonzo journalism.
Already, because objectivity is a lure, then,because the gonzo, it is the adventure, and itventures it is the adventure.
