Bus Proves Inadequate At Le Mans

A bus inadvertently demonstrated the effectiveness of the gravel traps along the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit today by getting mega stuck. Fortunately, most of today is the quiet before the race, with events like autograph signings and exhibitions. Even then, having to fish out a bus from the course is certainly inconvenient.

The bus beached itself at the Mulsanne Hairpin after taking a wrong turn, sinking into the gravel pit underneath. Luckily, crews have a lot of experience fishing vehicles out of the gravel. This bus may take a more heavy-duty tow rig to drag out, however.
