When our friend Ron Powell extended an invitation to join him on an adventure to the 2012 Le Mans Classic, the opportunity was simply too good to miss.
We look after Ron's cars here at Aston Workshop and the idea was for Ron and his friend Derrick to drive one of his lovely old DB2s, while our Manager Clive Dickinson and Brian Spearman pilot the other.
The weather did it's best to spoil things but nothing could deter from what turned out to be one of the best trips we've taken part in, including a visit to the Aston Martin Owners Club, a stop off to see the 'Tour De France' and a visit to the 'Hotel De France' along the way.
We have a lot of great pictures and video from the trip and we intend to put these in a diary for your perusal in the form of an online book.
Until then, enjoy this small selection taken by Clive
