Hopefully the refund/rollover situation will be clarified as part of the 10th June ticketing accouncements. ACO would surely want as many people to rollover into 2022 if they aren't selling many 2021 tickets.

I have had an email from the Tourist Board who I get tickets though as agents for the ACO. They advise ticketing arrangements will be issued on 10th June and attach a refund form for those not attending asking that it is returned by 20th June.

Even more reason to hope we can get there in person.

I have been ruminating over the tickets that might be for sale and for me it isn't adding up. Let's start with the marshals who all get two guest passes and that adds up to 2,500 passes. Then we have the ACO members who might get their allocation (which would be 40,000) although I would expect the ACO to do a membership draw for say 5,000. Then we have all the people who are carrying their allocation forward to this year, and if we generously count say, 30,000, then we are really approaching the 50,000 limit forecast. Even if we discount the marshals passes for friends we have 15,000 tickets left for sale. That isn't a lot for all the usual suspects who reputedly number over 200,000. Just a thought on my part, but we shall know this time next week just where we are heading. I should have access to the inside of Mulsanne bend and will be on the clubhouse roof as always, but I shan't be going inside the circuit even if I can.

Look the French turned up late for every war I can think of, and you expect them to be on time for a measly motor race?

I am not sure anyone is holding tickets over are they? Not unless the ACO is going to give those of us with Credit Notes first refusal on the tickets we had booked for last year.

Its also made more complex for the Brits because at present we can attend for 5 days but have to quarantine for 10 days when we get back.

There was an early option to refund or carry over tickets as booked. This then got superseded by a credit note only option.

Looks like GA tickets are being sold. Grandstand options and VIP options too. No sign of any ACO camping from what I can see so far.

A good way of keeping non-locals away TBH.

Where are you seeing the ticket sales? The ACO only have a register for information window.

I sent the ACO an email last week asking them why they stated in their email of September 2020 that in 2021 I could use the attached voucher until May 31st 2021, when on May 31st 2021 it was not possible to use that voucher to order tickets. They replied:

"We will get back to you on June 10th to give you all the ticketing information.

Do not worry, if the ticketing sales open after May 31st your credit note will still being valid."

No worries then whistle

This page appears to have tickets for August - https://ticket.lemans.org/en/24h-lemans - I haven't tried to actually make a purchase though (uncertainty on travel restrictions is a deal breaker for most of our guys).



Whoever wrote the blurb needs to change 84th edition to 89th edition.

Something about your screen shot worried me so I went on line and typed Lemans.org. I cannot buy a ticket and they ask me to leave my name and email address and they will let me know when tickets are available. Perhaps I'm being too cautious but better safe than sorry!
