Nah, it needs to fire its ballast away, preferably towards garages infested by lazy teams.

Late night ferry on the Sunday to return.
And I can now reveal that Craig IS joining our party! I have managed to squeeze him into my Pug 908 HDi (307!), and added him to the ferry booking.
So thats four of us at Arnage, with three of us excluding my bro-in-law, from my original trip in 2005. Great news!

Going directly from Spa on Monday 10th May, Parking Merc van and trailer and then TGV into Paris for a night out, Flying CDG TO LHR on Tuesday 11th and having the rest of the month off. Returning on Monday 7th June in Ford Explorer over Dunkirque arriving Monday evening, Dinner and a few beers in Arnage. Leaving following Monday and going via Sacy near Riems for resupply and then onto Dunkirque for 2001 sailing.
I never said it would be simple.

Just to clarify the LMP I am studying in the photo is actually named 'Henri's Revenge' and is a late entry for Pescarolo, just in case they really are gangsters who have taken his team away from him.

A couple of months ago I was resigning myself to having to spend June at home, but now:

Outbound Le Shuttle 06:20 Thursday

Camping in the peace and quiet of the Sarthe Countryside, far from the madd(en)ing crowd, cooking for around 15 people and enjoying every minute of it, consuming too much wine and "16", roast beef on Sunday.

Inbound: Le Shuttle pm, Monday


Oh - and somebody mentioned there's a race going on in the vicinity that I might take a look at if I can find time. (But don't tell Ayse - I'll be excommunicated for my heretical views!)

There will be two more Rosbifs close by, waiting for that Sunday roast aroma to waft by .
My father and I will definitely call in and say 'Hi' this year .

Ferry is now booked at last, 9 am Wednesday morning going out and 18.00hrs Monday return.
Look out for a 69 year old ex-race-instructor-come-superkart-driver-now 1938 Trawler owner (my dad)! At the wheel of a dated Renault Scenic complete with top box

Cheers Paul.

I'll be pleased to see you. First arrivals expected early/mid afternoon Thursday in Mondeo and Chrysler Grand Voyager; followed later by Volvo Estate and Ford Focus. All being well, the 9m x 3m gazebo will be with us again - I hope it will be needed to keep the sun off my balding head!

Some years ago, a member of our group unearthed his camping gear ready for the trip and discovered, in the bottom of his sleeping bag, one pair of socks that hadn't seen daylight for eleven months and two weeks.

Now, you know better than that by now! There is no hoping involved in this. It will be hot and sunny through the week (notice my emphasis on the week now... ). The power of thought of the entire Le Mans sub-forum is brought into play here. All chant after me -

'It will be hot and sunny,
It will be hot and sunny....'

As many times as you're able, perhaps even in tune with a good song, may I suggest 'Sunny Afternoon' by the Kinks?

There's a good game - Le Mans sunny weather tunes anybody?)

I never enquired, but the same person was also plagued by a weird, increasingly pervasive smell in his car after his return from LM. It took him over two weeks to find the Munster cheese that someone else had hidden under the back seat of his car....

There was that John Denver song from a few decades ago:

Sunshine at Arnage can make me happy
Sunshine at Mulsanne can make me cry
Sunshine on the GTs looks so lovely
Sunshine at Le Mans just makes me high.
