How did ou do that? That's what I would like.

Ah, I just wrote about this in the other thread. That's good news.

Not sure they will do it for everyone, obviously as the tourist office messed up my allocation this year i had to contact the ACO direct to get a special Tertre Rouge ticket issued using Kevin's disability as a trump card, he is happy to do that but still always pays for his entry ticket dispite being entitled to free ones, (as he says he is disabled not poor). Not sure the ACO will be able to do the same for everyone, and suspect social distancing might be in place to some extent next year so ticket allocations might be lower next year anyway.

From what i understand from the message i got from the ACO they will issue a credit note for the value of your booking with them, which you can then use against the cost of your 2021 booking, but no immediate entitlement to the exact tickets you had.This is as i said probably due to unknown social distancing rules likely to be in place at the time and therefore unknown levels of ticket availability. Only my understanding but it does make some sense in view of what is happening. Agencies probably have some guarantees from the ACO of the level of tickets they will get.

The earliest I have booked tickets was in the days of yore when Nadine was running shop at the TT. Monday after the race I sent her a mail, she confirmed and presto, in november my credit card was charged and I got tickets of my choice for next year's race.

Dates yes but suspect 2021 will not be back to pre covid normal. RLM were talking about it and i suspect camping sites will be forced to increasing pitch sizes to allow social distancing, which will of course reduce number of tickets available.

I am in turmoil.

50% of me thinks "hurrah! can't wait to get back to LM in June, it's only 9 months away!"

The other 50% thinks "it's only 9 months away, nothing will have improved by then, it'll be behind closed doors again, or international travel will be discouraged next Summer, etc"

Hopefully the Best Case Scenario is somewhere between the two (run in September again with a smaller crowd).

I feel the same. I'm sitting here thinking that surely we can get this situation sorted out by next June, but then I'd hoped it would be sorted by this September. Who knows. After a Le Mans at home, I have to remain optmistic....

It was the 24hrs but not as we know it..

Good food, good company, comfort and a hot shower, yet....

I would rather be there than a few hundred miles away.

I know that Toyota can't be blamed - but there just seems to be no credible answer right now to what they are doing. I remember the years when Toyota threw the kitchen sink at Le Mans and came away with nothing, but right now the ACO need to persuade more big teams (be they manufacturers or others) to come and get involved. I know the race isn't all about the top class, but there should be some chance that the top step of the overall win won't be a foregone conclusion.

LMP2, there were too many entrants here, but then again the lack of numbers in LMP1 dictated that. I guess there was a slim possibility that the battle was going to go down to the wire, but that didn't transpire either.

GTE Pro - okay so those numbers should have been bolstered by stateside teams and marques..

This years race just didn't do it for me.

I just hope the entry list for 2021 has more variation in numbers and no last minute cancellations - Ginetta!!

I know 2022 should be a feast, but will 2021 be another light year?

I'm not so convinced by the make up of the LMP2 regulations either.. I know why they exist as they are, but they just seem to remove an element from that classification.

Anyway!! Just hope that the race is permitted to go ahead next year and we can go along and enjoy it.

I think we can be pretty certain it will be on but in what format the attendance will take is very much in the balance, hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world descending on one place for a week in close proximity sounds a little unlikely at the moment, but i am confident that spectators will be back in some form and that i will be one of them
