Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but this is an event that needs some planning!

I will definitely be going next year. My dilemma (and reason for the post) is where to stay. I’ll be arriving about lunchtime on Friday in a hire car having flown to Paris CDG.

Action is pretty much non-stop from Fri to Sun so a B&B (even if I can find one) hardly seems good value. My instinct is thus to sleep in the car in the car park both nights. I know this will be fine on Sat night, but is there likely to be any problem doing this Fri night? Track action finishes at 3am but I assume the circuit and car parks remain open? Or am I likely to be told to vacate the car park between 3am and re-opening time on Sat?

Thanks!

Got the Porsche annular on my 356 90 GT
Kind of a hybrid that was expensive to produce so reverted to Girling discs on C type cars

Usually is !!
Look for Mr Bells entry. That’s the questionable one?
We know Will and his sponsor will make cut and probably those green buses.

We are still waiting to see if the entry due to be driven by Zef/ Mr Bell is accepted?
Could be interesting!

I guess Mike won't drive a Matra… Simca! Ferrari may be?

It’s usually an odd car with those two involved
Long shot to get it accepted!

Si vous avez choisi la voiture au mérite, il faut quelque chose de fantastique, de fabuleux, d'extraordinaire… And something a little bit weird too but looking great… Rover-BRM?

Are you refering to the drivers or the manufacturers?
