    Taking the Range Rover, not the E55k though.

    Staying at the Pistonheads campsite.

    Hugely looking forward to it!

    Year 12, driving down on Thursday morning via the tunnel, in my brothers MX5 this year, my E Class is staying at home. Parking, stands and entrance all booked, hotel is a standing order each year.
    Have a good time, the drive down is usually good if you avoid the motorways and the weather looks promising

    I won't be going to Le Mans this year:eek:
    I've done it 16 times, but always working and I've never had a wink of sleep on a Saturday night......and always been stickered up:D
    Here is my 1990 visit.
    Have a great time at the great race:cool:

    Might well be....but they can never manage to spell my name correctly:eek:
    Jaguar Le Mans winners Andy Wallace and John Neilsen helped me with a little road car project in 1991, and again a few months ago....

    Are you going?

    Not me but spent a couple of happy hours on Sunday morning doing this to a poor unsuspecting Insignia for the family to enjoy themselves. They're camping on the outside of the Porker Curves so if you spot a large blue/white Saltire give them a wave.

    Bit of shame. I wouldn't be surprised if there are no LMP1/Hybrid cars next year.

    I know its great going to the event, I've been several times more to the Classic than this one but I prefer to sit and watch it these days.
