24 Hours in Le Mans

Wow what a weekend!! I’ve just experienced my first live Le Mans and I will definitely be back. I’ve loved every second.

We’ve been lucky to have been blessed with scorching hot weather for the duration, but I don’t think rain would have dampened our spirits in the slightest.

It’s a strange thing to go to sleep listening to the sound of the cars going around the circuit, and then waking up to the same cars, still going round the circuit with over a third of the race still to run. Strangely, as we decided to head to bed, the noise on the circuit changed and we immediately realised the cars were running behind the safety car. That meant we had to switch the radio back on to find out what drama was unfolding.

If you’re at all into motorsport and haven’t yet been to Le Mans, then stick it on your bucket list. It’s a must visit.

So tomorrow we head home and Tuesday it’s business as usual in the Choctails kitchen.

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
