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 canít imagine not being there, even if Iím just kicking tyres!

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!

Slept in my Passat estate in the car park all weekend a few years back without a problem but the French can be a bit mercurial with some vehicles. Car shouldn't be a problem.

Iíve been told that unintentional (hopefully ) age-ism is at work on PAís website, and the entry forms wonít accept a DOB before 1950!

Anyone older just needs to select 1950 as DOB and it will be manually corrected, apparently......

No point in putting me down as driver as way before that date
We will have usual fleet and need to find other cars to make up the teams.
Four cars in G1, one in G3 and two in G4

Itís the best meeting of the year.

I'm well clear of that, although I have noticed I do need to scroll on some websites, more than once these days.
