The smile is back, and full-on too. I managed to obtain my fix early in the day, and a belle jour it was too with Loick Peyron and the aptly named Energy Team.

Fisher's View: In the Shotgun Seat on Artemis Racing - AC World Series *Feature By Bob Fisher, 7:21 PM Sat 6 Aug 2011 GMT
Where did we finish? Who won? Don’t know, and frankly, don’t care. I was in Nirvana as the sixth man aboard Artemis.
