A bit early but people are already talking about it! A must for an awful lot of people- competitors, spectators, Marshals, classic car owners......

I can’t imagine not being there, even if I’m just kicking tyres!

It interesting that we in the old bangers were treated as second class people when MRL ran their Historic’s as a prequel to 24 hrs.

One year the Aston team let us use their pit stuff .

Pity as my lot were messing about on the circuit probably passing fifteen times a lap for whole race and driving like very old men when they passed the pits.

Didn’t work,out I saw it all on the many screens made available to us!

Did they spin a lot when out of view? Bandits! The interest in pre-war stuff is growing, its just that crowds need some education. Thanks to people like you an bauble we can watch and learn about this moving fast giant museum.

Free time over the weekend?

You really do have no idea, do you. Le Mans Classic is solid track action from Friday morning until late Sunday. That includes nights......

Holding the event in October is never going to happen, it’s a mid summer event and would only ever work as such.

Ho yes, of course, thank you Mike I note that during the same weekend there's no room for two 24 hours races. I'll keep that in mind.

Surely you're mistaken?

There are 48 hours in a weekend, and 2x24=48?

Just have the first race start at 0000hrs Saturday - then the next set of competitors lined up in the pits at 2355hrs - ready to start at 0000hrs Sunday.

Just don't bother with practices, qualifying, or any work on the track/facilities between races.

No argument that two days is 48 hours.

Please explain why I should want to turn up at Le Mans and be included in a circus of two major events being run at the same time.?

How do PA get an income?

It’s not going to happen!

Hopefully be there next year!
