That *was* the plan.

The plan is now to not go. Having now had the work done to replace the bit of me that was problematic, I'm acutely aware of the fact that (with hindsight) I expected too much of myself, and by extension my poste mates, in 2023.

I most likely won't be fully recovered by mid June, so I'm not putting myself or anyone else through that again. Sucks, I want to be there, but... as we used to say when I did a lot of scuba diving: "It's better to be on the boat wishing you were 30m down than being 30m down and wishing you were still on the boat"

That's unfortunate Graeme, did you consider just going as a 'mere' spectator?

I am a very, very bad spectator these days, Andrew!

In all seriousness though - yes, I did, and the prospect (right now) of limited sleep in a tent on however good a mattress I can take, with the journey there and back, is not filling me with joy. Hopefully I'll be back to full fitness and enthusiasm for 2025!

I'm thinking about it. Two dear flagging friends who were planning on attending couldn't make it for different reasons, one of them seeing a 20+ run come to a cruel end so hoping we can all hook up together for one more shot!

Yes, please.

Hopefully the Ferrari win doesn't bring too many fairweather fans and displace the regulars again.

Should be an even stronger field, for which we should be grateful for.

The best is to have a look at the forum and on the ACO's site, frequently.

It was mid October last year for tickets and grandstands. Then over a month later it was camping. Will be interesting to see if they adopt the same split strategy again.

The ACO emailed out a keep me informed link today for tickets: https://aco.activetrail.biz/2022-24H...te-ouvertureGB

Bearing in mind the massive criticism from fans at the split ticketing, which ultimately left some people with entry tickets/grandstand seats but nowhere to camp or park, you'd like to hope that they will abandon the two-stage process next year. I'm assuming that we're now stuck with the loss of camping and parking areas. It's going to be a case of getting in super quick as people will be wise to what they need to do after this year's (last year's) shenanigans.

Definitely going.

This year was amazing - yes busy and some ACO oddness but as always great to catch up with fellow Tententhers - even though I've been a bit quiet recently and a few of our 'own' Le Mans family Some making a return after a few years away.

This year's trip seemed to go by in a flash though - might see if I can extend it..
