Got the FIA to thank for this. At least it is rather far upfront so plenty of time to change your work/holiday schedules!

This is quite annoying. I am organising my mates Stag weekend, and we had chosen those dates on the basis Le Mans was the week before!

He won't be happy we will be changing dates. evil

st. My Girlfriend's birthday is the 24th. Might be a late dash back across the channel on Sunday night unless I can convince her to come too. Failing that I have 10 months in which to get dumped!

For me this is good news. Son (who usually comes with me to Le Mans) has his birthday on the 18th, Father's Day is 16th, so the one week postponement will not clash with anything involving grandchildren!

Plenty of women around, only one LMS.

+1 and amen to that brother. I'm just glad that it's getting further away from my best mates nuptials.

I mean losing a bit of skirt is one thing, but losing your best mate would be a tad hard to deal with.

I'd get over it obviously, but you know what I mean.

Hmmm. Good job ferry hasn't been booked for our group...
Avoids Father's day, but would mean leaving on my son's birthday. I've got some brownie point work to do...

So the FIA are recognising the importance of LM24 finally. Hopefully for 2014 they will fit F1 around the LM24 dates!

Possibly a better weekend for me but I'm going whatever.

That will never happen.

Fu@@ing ACO had bowed to FIA pressure to change the date. My lads 2nd birthday so that's me fu@@ed for going thanks a bunch.

Really pleased with the date change. Means I don't miss key family birthdays weekend. Would have gone anyway but means I now get to go to both. Great news!

I suppose for every person who's glad the date has been changed there's another one who isn't, and lots who it doesn't affect at all.

If they keeping moving it on a week every year, by 2022 we might have a hot sunny one again for a change!
