Le Mans, France - Ask any petrolhead and they'll easily rattle off items on their motoring 'bucket list'.

Usually, these are related to driving specific cars, include attending an F1 race, meeting a famous motorport personality or perhaps learning how to drift with Ken Block.

What would a petrolhead's bucket list be if it did not include attending the amazing 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France, at least just once. 

Wheels24's Janine Van der Post lived out her petrolhead fantasy by attending the amazing race in France.
