Sorry mate, I am just being cynical for the sake of it I know. If I could buy the ACO, the first thing I'd do is reinstate the run down to the Esses! There just seems to be so much negativity about on here at a time when I'm here to enjoy one of the most important parts of my year!

I think the EoT+BoP+Future debate just overshadows things and makes it look 'worse' than it actually is, even though 99,9% of the folks are extremely excited about the weekend, ie the best week of the year for sport anywhere

Went to the straight between Mulsanne and Indianapolis saturday morning, to sit on the banking, in the shade from the trees. Only to find all the trees were cut down! What was left was a sad sight of a lower laid part of land drenched in dark, muddy water, because the trees that normally soak up all the water had been cut! Was there a reason to destroy those trees? Were they sick?

I thought a lot of those trees burned down (turned out to be the act of an arsonist) about a year and a half ago?

A lot of crashes seemed happen at the Porsche Curves. Drivers trying a bit too hard thanks to the new run-off? It was kind of pleasing to see actually since there was talk that the corner was no longer challenging...

In TV the new Porsche Curves didn't look as bad as at least the bitumen was painted to look like sand. Also, when comparing onboards from 2017 and 2018, the actual track lines, kerbs and the already existing run-off seems to be unchanged.

Do you mean the run from Mulsanne - the straight section up to where you can see the Rolex 'bridge'? Those are different trees to the ones that were affected by fire. The ones as you walk from Mulsanne car park have been cut down since last year leaving the walk through very bare indeed. That area has always suffered from flooding and boggy ground, even with the trees!

Yes, that's what I meant.

The burnt down area is on the inside of the track. Thankfully a lot of new trees are coming up to replace the burned down ones.

I thought that was a shame, looked really bare and just not right, hopefully there was a good reason they had to be cut down

Agreed, it was quite a shock when we turned up there on Thursday evening. But, a bit of deforestation is necessary from time to time, I guess. It has certainly changed 'the feel' of the place, and not in a good way.
