No news as yet from the ACO, except that the likelihood is that it will be July again.

Me? Frankly I'm finding it hard to wait!

I wish they'd put the darned thing back to the original (2002) September slot - I might have a chance of getting to it again then........

I have to say, I loved the September date too. July is just a bit hot. Sadly, I believe they plumped for the midsummer date to maximise the daytime track time.

When was the September date? the other possible problem is the number of events in Sept its a bit like May whereas July is not for some reason as busy. Wasnt there some problem with the local residents complaining about the September date? I havent done it but friends who have tell me that although a momentus occassion the night race was scary as levels of talent varied dramatically (I know of one long term Lister driver who retired from racing after it) and on balance didnt give enough to justify the very high entry fee...

From memory I think it was the weekend of the 20th-22nd. Of course, Goodwood was much earlier in the month that year.

I'm not sure there was an issue with residents per se, but there was a scheduled horsey event at the Hippodrome in 2004 which would have complicated things.

also a week after Spa which isnt ideal as it doesnt leave room for error! Although the Lister man to which I refer I seem to recall the year before going stright from Spa to Le Mans and then his car going out to Macau for the freebie race to celebrate 50 years of Macau - would that be right? Are we talking abt the same event - the one where you get three races one at twilight one at day and one at night?

Provisionally scheduled date for next year is 8/9 July. Too close to 24 hours to make a trip to both domestically acceptable here. Main problem with September date was objections from local traders about disruption to weekend trade caused by road closures (particularly on Mulsanne Straight), which came uncomfortably close to causing event to be cancelled. July is thought to be less disruptive because of coincidence with French holiday season.

Thanks for that, guys. I know the ACO website has no info, but you can always rely on some inside information here, can't you...
