In today's Sam has been trapped for too long… 2014 #B12hr – i don't generally get emotional or play favourites at the track but with the #Maranello #ferrari taking the win, it was different. #AllanSimonsen has been a stalwart for the team, winning the #AustralianGT title in 2007. He was mega at the track. He had passed away the previous year at Le Mans. The other thing was Simonsen gave me my first interview to become a motorsport media professional. We chatted a few times a year. So this one is different. The race is amazing as it is. These circumstances, this win was something else entirely. For the record, #JohnBowe #MikaSalo #CraigLowndes #PeterEdwards won in the #Ferrari458GT3 with 296 laps in the book.
