That was a pretty awesome weekend. Hopefully Indy will be an equally great adventure, and I hope I don't manage to get everyone bored talking about it before Le Mans over a few beers in the campsites.

JoeW04 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Heading over Friday on a day ferry from Portsmouth and usually stop an hour outside Le Mans at a hotel Friday to be at the circuit in time for morning warm up, works quite well but I do miss camping and experiencing the whole week

I confess having done the long weekend only for 24 years, I couldn't go back to that now. In fact, the period between arriving in LM on Sunday and the race has become almost more important to me than the race itself!

I agree! (although not doing the long weekend yet).
The beginning of the race means the beginning of the end of the trip.

Do you mean that your post-Le-Mans depression begins once the race has started ?

Not quite Pascal. It tends to start about halfway through the ferry journey home..... I just enjoy the build up to the race during the week more and more these days.

You get a buzz turning up at Le Mans full stop - whatever time you manage to get there!

Bizarrely, I get a huge buzz when I step out onto the tribunes on Tuesday, when there are about 3-4 other people about, just looking across to the garages. Last year, James and I sat up in the pits grandstand, and all you could hear was the sounds of the birds.....

what race?

It is the buildup, the campsite, the racefriends and everything around it that matters.
