I've got a question for you guys!

Does anyone know how you would get into the Scrutineering area where all of the drivers and teams go. As I've seen some people go into this area but not sure which ticket it would be to get in there. Thank you!

That would be a Pitwalk ticket. 650 euro for non-members, 420 euro for ACO Racing auto elite members (249 euro/year). Discount on two tickets maximum. See also the recent Pitwalk Ticket thread: http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=151829

Scrutineering is on the sunday/monday the weekend before the race in town and not at the circuit i think, and i do not think you need any tickets, several others on here go so they will know more

I thought you meant the pit/paddock area....
If you indeed mean scrutineering in town, it is like GT6 mentioned on Sunday and Monday at the beginning of race-week in the town centre, at Place de la Republique. I'm not sure you can buy tickets to go in the inner-circle, but as an ACO member you can take a free guided tour which takes you inside. I then sneak off to take pictures and leave the guide and my fellow tour-members alone because a) I am not that fluent in French and b) know more about Le Mans than the guide anyway....
I often take that tour twice on the Sunday, and twice on the Monday

Hi,

I am considering going to LM 2018 with my Son (14yrs old) and also thinking about joining the ACO club. I have a couple of questions:

Q1. Is it too late to join the ACO club and obtain discounted tickets / camping for 2018?
Q2. Can my son benefit from my membership of ACO club, i.e discount tickets, attend the ACO club grandstand, etc?
Q3. Can anybody give me the contact details for Nadine?

Thanks in advance,

Nick

OK if you wish you can join the aco when you arrive at le mans in June and get the tickets at the discount rate, my membership is due for renewal at the end of November but i have already got my order for tickets in.
Each membership gets you 6 discounted tickets but your son is under 16 so it is free for him anyway.
If their are any grandstand t17/18 left you can by two only.
With any youngster choice of campsites is important, go for the best you can get, safety being the main concern.
Nadine is now about to retire but new contact is

When the Scrutineering was moved to Place de la République suddenly there were folks who gained access to the inner sanctum in addition to the teams, officials and media. They had paid up several hundred Euros I was told. Usually laden down with masses of photos to get signed by the drivers and then to flog on E Bay............total pain as the drivers did not want to get involved with this money grabbing exercise. Interviews with genuine media became hard to arrange and were frequently interrupted, I had chase several idiots away when acting as a press officer for a team over a number of years...........I cannot be certain but I do not recall that being the case back in June but I had a different function in 2017 so may not have noticed. There is nothing on the website about tickets and the ACO rarely miss an opportunity to generate some petty cash - especially in the post-VW era when austerity beckons............

ACO has tours inside the area, you have to be a member, you can sign up for the tour outside the area at the club stand. You are however not free to move inside the area. They ask you polite to stay with the group. It depends on your 'tourguide' how free you are moving arround.

Thanks for the Le Mans test date. How about the Monza test, it's back to Ricard?

Is it possible to ask a car class related question here? Doesn't seem like something for making a new topic.

Porsche 934 in 1976, entered in Group 5. http://www.racingsportscars.com/chas...70%200164.html

Wasn't 934 a Group 4 car, and 935 a Group 5? That's all, thanks
