Significant day today too - 100 days until my Le Mans holiday begins (101 until I leave for France).
Great view... you have to breath in at the start as it is a bit cramped.
We are in Wimille, this year.

This is the only solution I have found to have my own bucket seat. Yes but the shape is destroyed each year by some bikers boots.

Dunlop.Mainly look at Grandstand seat as rain insurance.Usually only spend 3-4 hours of race in stand if dry.

My favourite and usual grandstand - would be good to say "hi"!

I'm so torn for this year. Past few times I have gone I have never bought a grandstand ticket, and prefer to move about the track. But the weather in 2011, 2013 and 2014 was great by and large (2013 a little dodgy IIRC, and there were those huge showers in 2014 when Lapierre stacked it).

As I'm only going for the race, and I will be staying up all night, I am thinking that an extra 100 quid on a covered grandstand would be quite a good investment, and an absolute must in the event of rain. Can imagine a rainy Le Mans without a grandstand or a tent to shelter in would be a pretty miserable experience.

Then again, if it's warm and sunny I may kick myself...

It's gonna be warm and sunny.

(But I'll still have a seat )

This is now Simon's cue to say it's completely unnecessary.......

Bit the bullet and went for T15 Chinetti.

I'll actually be covering the race for the website I write for, so I guess having somewhere to sit and type isn't a bad thing. Accreditation? At Le Mans the ACO tend to forget the little sites that cover their series for the entire season and prefer to allocate all the press places to the big guns, c'est la vie.

Is your website accessible by the public or private?

Oh it's an actual WEC news website, not my own personal blog or anything. The URL is www.wec-magazin.com.

We get accreditation for all other WEC races no problems at all, but the ACO like to keep a tight lid on it for their Blue Riband event and you have to have been accredited for a certain number of regular WEC events before you're even considered.

Yeah, but it doesn't count and you won't be allowed to sit there until you check the little box above...
