Nice thought HW but its a long way from LeMans Village!

Now as I have already replied to Ayse in the LeMans 2008 thread same time same place cos the "Big Pin" needs dusting off! I promise I will make it this year!

I had not thought about this one yet. I would say in the same spot as last year at 11.30am which will give people enough time to see the Group C race and get to the meeting point.

The legends race starts at 10.15 and lasts 1 hour, so I think 12,00 would be better, it give people a chance to watch the race, collect a few things from the campsites and then wander to the village. Lets hope it's not raining I looked silly last year in a rain jacket.

I really want to make this one. Was at Le Mans last year, but as it was my first time I :-

a)forgot about it as I was exploring the circuit for the first time, and
b)wasn't sure where to go!

Been a 10/10th member long enough now, its time I met some of you guys/girls. Would it be to much to ask if someone took an A3 sheet of paper with Ten-Tenths written on it, so I know im with the right bunch!

There used to be a couple of tents at Le Mans which served up similar fare, but they disappeared a few years back.

Is the Group C race definitely of one hour duration this time? Hope so, half an hour was deemed long enough in 2004 (and I felt a bit short changed).

Thanks to Pascal for starting this thread - I was secretly hoping he would when I mentioned this in the main thread........

First question (and perhaps Ayse already knows the answer), will Fab be attending the race this year?
I fear not. Although we have had some contact, Fab made it clear to me months ago that he didn't intend to come. His life has clearly moved on a pace, with family and other interests dominating his time. Perhaops there's still time? I'll try and contact him again over the weekend.


On to the main subject - I'd definitely go for the same time and spot as Rob suggests. I just need to make sure that when I take my photos this year, my camera is working properly.....

I Think the expression is 'Damn!'

Also here generally -

Tenthers at Le Mans 07

Are you there?

I will be there, of course!
the wine is ready (not chilled yet, though)

may I mention that, after last year's meeting, the pre-race on-track shows seemed VERY short to me, so the sooner the better for the meeting

OK, same spot that last year, it's a central place that every one can reach ealisy. I will post a link for the first timers.
We can begin the meeting at 11h30, even if some of us will arrive at noon or a bit later.
I will bring a brand new camera for the photo of the group. We will have bernard's one too !

About Fab, he will probably contact us one of these days. It's up to us to show him we keep the group gathered...
