Le Mans is confirmed as postponed to 21/21 August. Still no change for Le Mans Classic.

We will probably hear about LMC within two weeks.
Betting is first weekend of September in the unlikely event it takes place.

Yes, 21/22 August actually

Two different economic models. LM is ACO only and brings a lot of sponsorship, TV and car makers for instance. Those companies need public to display their know-how and future models. I you've seen the short-lived villages built by Audi, Toyota or Porsche, including hotels and chartered trains, you know what I mean.

LMC is ACO/PA which is another story.PA at least really need LMC to be held as should, public and clubs, should it be cancelled it would be a big loss. Happily, they are wealthy atm, and will make all the needed efforts to run the event. Bet the health situation will have dramatically improved by September.

First weekend of September, PA team will be busy with Tour Auto 30 Aug/ Sat 4 Sept at Nice.
LMC before LM, not very realistic. LMC after LM but not too far from each other because of the infrastructures gives either 9/12 Sept or more likely 16/19 Sept.

Ooops, sorry… 12/15 August if they find people ready to work here at this time of the year. Another time, how to manage marshaling? You need circa 600 people, motivated and trained. Plus firemen, plus ambulances plus plus plus…

It will be for Le Mans for those of us who have lodged with locals - who will normally head off to their summer homes in August. Frankly, August is a long way off at this stage !

If you have connection with locals, may be you can ask to some shop owner in the Mulsanne area about a strong rumor. Only a rumor ATM.

Come on Gerard, spill the beans!

What's the rumour?

Some shop owners in the mentioned area might have been warned about a possible cancelation of LMC. You could check with some hotel tenders but without a date…

So are we talking about cancellation until 2022, or a later date this year?

I'm interested to know, because we were supposed to go last year and have accommodation and tickets held over from then. But this year's provisional date for LMC of early July now clashes with a meeting here that I want to enter, so for this reason, amongst others (Covid, travel uncertainty, etc), I would actually prefer it if it was run later in the year.

Later this year I dont think so if its not 15 Aug. With LM 21/22 August, can they manage such a long gap between the two meetings, early July and late Aug? I think yes because ACO is a local and powerful organisation involved both in LM and LMC. It's not been done before.
Worth give a phone call to the travel agency or to an hotel near the circuit.

The real unknown is the virus and the way it is handled here. Why not stay safe at home if you have another meeting in your area?

Yes Gerard, agreed.

But if they do run the event (LMC) and we choose not to go, then I'm fairly sure we would lose the money we've paid for accommodation & tickets.

However, if they cancel or postpone until later in the year, then our tickets and accommodation will probably just carry over to the new date, as it did from last year's bookings.
