Tigers fans show their stripes at Le Mans

Season ticket holders Paul and Jay Carter took their Tigers shirts on tour for the 24 hours of Le Mans.

Dad Paul and his son Jay, who are both Try Line Club members, wore their team colours on both race days, and while they were out and about on the Friday before it began.

"We always meet other Tigers plus we get other fans talking to us."

Paul, who has been attending 24 Hours of Le Mans for 30 years, sent in the photo as part of our Tiger Hunt this summer, in which Tigers are asking supporters to share photos in club colours throughout the summer months.

He said: “We always meet other Tigers plus we get other fans talking to us.

“We shared a few beers with some London Irish fans after the race this year and welcomed them back to the Premiership in style.”

They live in Bishop’s Stortford and make the 200-mile round trip to every home game. Their support started when Jay went to the University of Leicester and got some tickets to Welford Road through the Students’ Union.

“We liked it so much I got us a pair of tickets and we used it as a way of keeping in touch while he was at university,” said Paul. “We are now hooked and also go to as many away games as we can now.”

Whether you are seeking sunshine or holidaying closer to home, watching a major sporting event or attending a festival, we'd love to hear from you.

Email your photos to [email protected], tweet @LeicesterTigers on Twitter, share with @LeicesterTigers on Instagram or post to our Facebook page. And don't forget to wear your Tigers colours or fly your Tigers flag.

Tigers will share some of our favourite photos through the summer in our online Tiger Hunt galleries and on social media.
