I was tossing up whether to order Steve McQueen: The Man And Le Mans and noticed that the LM2017 BD was due in a fortnight. Thanks for keeping it in my mind Simmi, I likely would have forgotten about it by the time it becomes available.

I'm a bit torn. I've got the recent Duke offerings, but they never make it to the top of my playlist, simply because it's too much of an investment of time and, dare I say it, they've not really been edited to appeal? My fear here is it will be 4 hours of footage cropped from commentary that works fine if you're watching it at track or live, but a retrospective requires a little bit more work...

A genuinely well produced context plus highlights package running to about 90 minutes would work for me, and I suspect would serve as a good introduction to the non aficionados.

In a world where full reruns are put up on YouTube my gut feel is something like this might, sadly, be a little bit of anachronism.

Obviously if someone who's invested and watched can convince me otherwise then I'd be delighted to invest for my hols (thinking sometime later in October, so bags of time...).

You're probably right Ian, I buy it as much now as a record of the event, more than entertainment. I watch it through once and return to it for snippets now and again. The one thing that is vital for me however is the live RLM commentary. I hated the review videos when they had added on commentary. The false 'surprise' of the commentator when something happened was a total turn-off for me....

The ACO showed they could not be trusted to put together a decent review DVD. I think 2009 was a particularly low point. Almost like someone had set them a personal challenge as to how far into the DVD you could get before the race actually started.

Like Ayse says the RLM commentary on this current breed is great because it links the footage with the memories you had at the track watching the race. Couple that with great quality Blu-Ray pictures and I think it's a decent purchase. Even if it does often require a couple of sittings to watch, or a good risk of me falling asleep.

The irony that I can stay awake for a full 24 hour race but can't make it through a four hour review!

Not a real surprise, but still sad to see it go. So after the Union Jack went belly up a few years ago, and now the Legend café gone, where does one go for a drink in Le Mans?

Quick question. Off the top of your heads (or more specific if you're able), does anyone know when tickets will go on sale from the ACO for LM next year? Particularly for members.....?

They seem to be bringing the date further forward each year. Tuesday 17th October for ACO members and the 20th October for non members:

Makes me think they are running a big overdraft and want cash as early as possible, or is that me just being cynical.

No, it's the ACO getting organised, finally. Last year I received my tickets November 6th, this year I'm guessing October 25th
