Then there is no issues with your mates joining you, as long as there is room on your camping spot!

No problem on HA you can just walk on to the site, but that does mean that it is not very safe to leave anything of value there, best to make friends with all those camping around your spot, that way they will look out and challenge anyone strange snooping around while you are not there.

I have some spare GA's which I can sell you at 5 euros under face value. If interested pm me your contact details.

o wise ones,

since i'm going to be at the wrong end of europe come The Holy Week, will the friend who was going to come with me be able to pick up our grandstand tickets with a scanned in copy of my driving licence? on the initial email it just said a copy of the id, whereas the latest "this is where you're going" directions email just says "your id".

obviously this is france so it depends on the mood of the person behind the counter, direction of the wind etc but... is there an official word on this?

i think they will be so busy that they will not look at anything other than the name, glad you are not wasting the tickets, and tell your friends that they are still welcome at the meet on Saturday. You will be missed and glass or two raised in your honour

A couple of years ago I was told very firmly by the ACO ticket office that only the person named on the order could pick up the tickets and no proxy would be accepted.

oh, bloody hell. maybe i need to call them, or ask the friend to call them to see what the score is. the annoying thing is she was going to be using one of them anyway, it's just that i placed the order.

here's the bit from the order email that says someone else can collect them:
Quote:
To collect your tickets, you will need to bring your invoice and a valid ID. Times and places will be announced in due time on our website.
Another person can collect your tickets on your behalf, as long as he/she brings your invoice and a copy of your ID.

Can she credibly bring one of your bits of ID and pass herself off as you? I mean realistically do any of us resemble the images on our passports / driving licenses etc?

It says that another person can collect them with a copy of your ID so surely that can be arranged.

Precisely. Ignore what I said, they must have changed their policy for a more reasonable one.
Sad you can't be there yourself.

Has anyone else renewed their ACO subscription recently? I renewed mine on 29th April, my account was debited the same day and I still have no card. I emailed the ACO and had a nice reply from Letitia who said that they had had delays in sending cards out but she would send me another 'temporary' one today. As I leave on Saturday I'm not holding out much hope of either arriving in time. As far as I recall, the only time I'm going to need it is when I register for my (no doubt very fetching) wristband. Presumably if I have last year's card (which only ran out in May) that, together with their own records will mean that I have no problem... (I can even bring my building society statement showing the payment to them.....).

They are always very slow, mine expires every year in oktober and it takes lots of weeks after and lots of sent emails before I have my new pass!
Service remains of poor standards but as long as we pay at least the ACO is happy.
