Our site doesn't have bookings. However the Le Mans 2020 group is already busy on Wattsapp planning away.

Its really good this bit. Everyone comes in with their ideas, we debate them, and then we agree to my plan. laugh

Always camp in the same area, against the wall directly behind the main entry point. pitch is dictated by length of Vince's electricity line from the loos closer to the stage. so if you saw the red gazebo that was Vince and we had the large event shelter stage side of that, selection of cars from blue st fiesta, my green jag xe, small,skoda a greyish audi estate and a red prius. previous year had mates daimler acouple of times and his audi w12, but most memorable was about 5 years ago when he took an old lincoln town car, the fabled pimp mobile no body could forget that. The Audi this year replaced a garishly painted LDV van that they usually take. Where do you camp usually,

I will be booking as soon as the ACO releases tickets Oct/Nov, I imagine with the ticket vendors you are only reserving for now?
My ferry company has not got bookings past December yet.
But, all is in hand and its just pressing buttons as and when now!

Up against the fence, to the right (if looking out to the track) of where the grandstand was...which this year was occupied by a "restaurant". We had one of the two scaffold stands lolz...we also super-glued 1 and 2 euro coins to the path in front of our section lolz

Well I’ll be there and buying my ticket on the gate as usual.
Think I should start a ticket agency. Give me your money now and I’ll take care of it until next June, easy money.

Well of course it's going to cost more via an agency. But after 3 years of trying to get TR via the ACO - but ending up with Houx - made us decide to just pay the extra to secure TR well in advance.

This is what we are planning

Next year looks to be an ‘in-between’ year for the 24 hours and not a lot to hold interest. We’ve always fancied the classic, but two trips over is hard to get past management. Skipping the 24 hours, doing the classic and then a return for the reg changes in 2021 seems like a good option.

Camping for the classic is a little different to the main event with several camp sites and area's allocated to clubs and marques, triumph has the whole of the tertre rouge site, usual discount for ACO members if they book direct with the ACO or the tourist office in le mans.

I don't think we plan to do 2020.

We are going to go to a European F1 race next year.
Yet to decide which one!

Le Mans 2021 is in the scope though!
Think we will try to camp at Pistonheads Blu Nord

When is the right time to book to get places there. How early do you need to get your foot in the door?
