Those electric hookup points are somewhat terrifying. I wouldn’t want to be staying next to one of those just in case.
When the neutral wire takes a serious wander towards "ouch", and everything's under water it pays to be careful.

As for the two seater, this is an important adventure and addiction not a coach trip even with a Boxter. Take both cars, you can always park one up. Sod the cost of the ferry, P&O will burn in hell anyway

This was Silverstone last year. Looking forward to my first Le Mans in it.

That looks like a tight squeeze on a 7x5m pitch!

OK so I see it says 35 Metre squares so I assume 7.5 X 4.2 is OK?

If the pitches on Epinettes are marked out, they’ll be 7x5m. I’m sure you’ll be ok, just make sure you’ve got cold beer to bribe the neighbours with.

Only a diesel estate unfortunately (but I love it) for our first trip to LM staying in Bleu Nord with 1st Tickets.

Looking forward to seeing all the more interesting motor making the trip.
See you there, we'll be in the far corner of the site nearest the circuit, pop by for a cold one or to charge stuff up like many people do. We had about 10 random phones charging most of the time in 2019, no idea whose they were or how they got there, I should probably calm down on the cold ones!

The guy ropes are the problem, but you can get most things to fit. Just get there first
Not sure about the motorhome behind my caravan.

I’ll be nervously driving this down (fresh from a 6yr restoration) but staying in a house locally with the rest of the group.

I'm staying about an hour from the track at Mortagne au Perche with a crowd of Brits. We've stayed at the same hotel for more than a dozen years. The chariot for the last 8 years has been this Boxster

I'm in Epinettes this year and there's no sign of electricity, unless you splice into the toilet blocks power yikes Its daft that there isn't power

Yes, I have a collection of double adapters and I've smelt the burning
We gave up on power and went solar smile All that's needed is phones, well powerbanks. Just a small 3 panel one camping one, A4 profile sized. Did that a few years ago now and haven't needed to plugin to anything since!
