Exactly so. If you have a modern car that's even vaguely sporty, you get in. I'd much rather see the cars from 60's-80s.

Or even older, in the early years there were always plenty of 50's and older french cars.

I agree, although it can be dangerous to turn up in an old car. I once got interviewed there! I think they thought I might be interesting, but it turns out I was just in an interesting ‘60s car.

Best year though was when I was there for the afternoon and then in the parade in the evening. To get to the town we had an escort from the Harley Davidson guys. Absolutely fantastic. They shot off ahead and then cordoned off each roundabout! Legends.

many years ago we used to go every Friday to the hotel de France and see all the old cars, then there suddenly seemed to be less cars there, we were then told about a new car show held just north of le mans, so the next year we headed there, have been every year since. The organisation has got better each year and the early years of a few hundred people has grown into one of the largest classic car events in France.

This was pretty good in 2016. It was only a shame that the owner had no clue how to drive it....

The pink band was a main stay of the event for years, but seem to have been missing the last few.

Fancy shaking in your boots because of the cold for hours on end, guarding the entrance of Tertre Rouge, checking tickets, looking for half a second in somebody's car in search for glass bottles and be bored all the time? Please apply with the ACO, because they're hiring!

I Just had my membership renewed and while opening the ACO app I noticed it says : member since 2020. Gave them a call and was told they could not change it. I have been a member since 2014. My membership nummer is the same though. Anyone else have the same? I have a little pride in beiing a ACO member and would like the membership card to be accurate. Besides sometimes it gives extra benefits.

I renewed a couple of months ago and still have not had my new membership card, looked on the site and can't see any where that says member since (been a member for about 20 years now).

Ask them again. When I renewed they gave me a new number. I pestered them for a week asking for my old number back because I've been a member for 23 years... Eventually they said they could do it. Card has now arrived and it's correct. They also sent me three issues of Spirit of Le Mans for being a member for so long..... Ask for Marine or Helene.

You should have had your card by now. Mine took about a fortnight.
