2008 Honda NSX DAYS
My friend Nicolas is going to the Honda NSX DAYS held at the Bugatti track in Le Mans in 2008, France, and he tells me that the passenger seat is empty in his NSX. That sounds like a nice opportunity to spend a nice week end on track, even if I will play the “sand bag” next to him …
We are staying for the night at my parent’s home located one hour from the track and we enjoy two days of a shinny weather. Things are always way better with sun, 30 degrees of temperature and no wind !
This event is organized by the Swiss NSX club and the Geneva Porsche club. Many people from foreign countries are coming with (or without ..) Honda NSX to celebrate the anniversary of this fabulous japanese sport car.
Go on track and enjoy a diner with the NSX japanese engineer
My friend came with his NSX not only for showing it but mainly for driving it on the track. The car has a great handling and the only issue we have to face is the overheating engine oil (and the related loss of oil pressure). This is impressive, the oil is as liquid as water !
We also have the opportunity to see a lot of nice cars going hard around the track and some drivers let us take a seat in their passenger seat. The supercharged NSX is amazing !
The best opportunity of the week end is for dinner : we are invited at the “Auberge des Hunaudières“, a famous restaurant located close to the Hunaudières straight line known since decades for all what possibly happened during the 24 hours races.
Dinner was a little bit rough to manage with both english and german people at the same table but hey, this is what helps you improve your skills with other languages !
The Japanese Honda engineer who was in charge of the NSX and S2000 projects was here and this was quite impressive to see how interesting this man is.
