SOHEIL AYARI : LA PASSION COMME MOTEUR
You are now at Le Mans Classic for the fourth consecutive time.
Soheil Ayari: "I will certainly never an opportunity to drive on the big Le Mans circuit."
Is it not confusing to drive these cars, just weeks after driving in a modern prototype?
"If at first it is! In 2008, I drove a fabulous Porsche 917. It went as fast as our current prototypes on the straights, but I had to slow down at 300 metres instead of 100 metres. "
"Of course, they were even posters in my room when I was little! My car collector friend knows, and he never fails to invite me to share his ride! The Ferrari 365 GTB4 is legendary and powerful but with the brakes of that era. As for the Ferrari 512 BBLM, it goes to each Le Mans Classic. It is well balanced. ".
