What It’s Like To Take On Le Mans With A Pair Of Race-Prepped Gullwings



Earlier this year I had the pleasure of joining the team at HK-Engineering, and one of the biggest highlights so far was our trip to Le Mans classic with two of our race Gullwings. If you want to know what the experience was like, this is my take on the weekend.

The atmosphere of the Le Mans Classic provides for one of the most authentic historic motorsport experiences in the modern era. This is no surprise to anyone who’s even heard of this bi-annual weekend of pre-‘80s racing wherein the drivers still do “Le Mans starts” and the cars are fired up with keys rather than computers. I attended this year with the HK-Engineering team (which I joined earlier this year) and two race-prepped Gullwings running in the 1949-1956 class known here as Plateau 2. The weekend was severely lacking in sleeping hours, one Gull lost its wing, and though we returned exhausted and smelling a bit more like exhaust than when we’d left there isn’t anything I’d change about it.
