Self explanatry I suppose ????

gtsm and I went this year and loved it ! so wonderd if you lot wanted to go nxt year, I think at the mo the plan is.....

Leave wed eve from portsmouth (bout 5ish) and arrive some stupid time Thursday morning in Lemans ! so we can get pukka camping spot !

Then drink drink drink, sleep drink drink eat, go home Monday or Tuesday ?

Might book a villa nere by to crash (worng use of word!) at as getting out is a nightmere ! and sleep is optional !

We were in Masion Ruggge site and it seems to be the best place to be not to far from everything and nxt to the track !!

Dude

I tried to get sth like this underway early last year but it just turned into a thread about power, 0-60, my chopper is bigger than yours etc. U get the pic. I ended up going with the TVR Cerbera boys and we had an absolute scream.

did meet Jez down there from GTR.

One needs to be patient on this and maybe get sth underway early next year??

I am def up for Le Mans whatever as an annual pilgrimage!!

See you there, NLW

I did go three years on the trot, but havent had the time the last few years.

I would very much like to go again, and should be able to arrange cheap Eurotunnel tickets as well.

I always camp at Le Mans save the hassle of getting on and out, and I buy food and beer from the local supermarket about 5 mins away.

The first year I went, I managed to get through the woods and stand about 1 metre from the Mulsanne Barrier. Amazing site seeing the cars at 200MPH+.

I woudl go around Wednesday, then you can see the daytime qualifying, the Thurday evening qualifying, and pit walkabout on Friday. I normal leave on Monday or Sunday evening.

Leigh,

I was at LeMans this year - hoping to be able to get as close as you did to the cars on the Mulsanne Straight, but alas, they've stopped that after the Merc 'flipped' a few years ago.

The pub half way along the Staight has now been shut during race times - it is, however open at all other times, with LOTS of police with speed cameras too!!!!!!!

A trip down there still sounds like a great idea though.

have to agree with..

mr welch. It is an annual pilgrimage for a lot of us, just happens that we all tend to go seperately! I go via the chunnel on thursday and stay at the airport (getting too old). Met up with a great bunch of geordies last year - two 360s, two M3s and a GT2. Trouble is, most of us go by different routes and, once there, the effect of a diet of crisps and kronenbourg stubbies is that it is very difficult to get one's act together and meet up. It'd be great to go down with a convoy next year - esp thru all those tunnels in Rouen:D

Well last year gtsm and I went to pourtsmouth, and down from there on wed eve and got to LeMans by Thursday morn(11:00ish)

Not as many police and camras but lots of nice long straight roads !! throu little villages, that was quite nice, as for cost I cant rember but gtsm will shure tell me !

but i agree with Ross a large aerea needs to b cordend off for us all, Large tent, genrator, Pool with beer in ! more tents. etc etc

so after we know numbers 1 or 2 of us could go down and slect an aera for us and hold fort until the rest arrives !

we should meet in the UK first and talk round a pub table, to put the plan together .....

Went in 2001

for me first time and really enjoyed it (even with all that bloody rain.)

I'm all up for a convoy but like Sammy am getting old so need the comforts of a Hotel.

Plus I HATE boats so the Chunnel's cool for me.

Yeah perhaps get this rolling around Jan/Feb time.

I'm definitely going and am in the process of organising a fairly substantial convoy. Should be about 8-10 cars - all quick ones.

If you want to meet up with NWelch just hang around the stripper tent for 10 minutes or so ;)

Would love to meet up with the skyline boys down there or join a bigger convoy if you organise one.
