Le Mans Classic 2018

Our Grandstand seats are literally right opposite the Rolex Watch on the start/finish straight same as previous years. Going to ‘sticker up’ the car for the first time this year. ?

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

We hope to have tickets for the 'Panorama ' stand (too late for the Dunlop). As we ate old timers we booked the Ibis Center in Le Mans. Its walking distance to the old town center with all its restaurants and bars and the relatively new tram system runs past the hotel to the circuit if we don't want to drive in.

If you want to drive in to the town center the new underground car park has been open for a couple of years now, so no problem with parking. its walking distance from there to the new and old town centers.

Planning to go this year, just looking at booking hotels within circa 45 mins of the circuit.

Any recommendations? 

If you can find one, book it!

Actually, just looked on Booking.com & there are still a few available, but quite expensive.

IS that at the circuit Gavin or just somewhere close? It looks an interesting compromise between a B&B an hour away and a nylon coffin in some mud!

In the garage no-one can hear you scream

Popping in on the Friday on the way back from the south of France in the V8 on our two week holiday tour. I've had a look at the Club Lotus stuff and don't need a three day pass (think it is too late by a day anyway) so won't be doing the infield thing. Hopefully get to see a few of you!

I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)
