This is a true story.

About  5 years ago we pitched up on Houx on  the Thursday and then set off to Carrefour for the weekly shop! We had a couple of new guys with us who wanted to see the track.

As we approached Terte Rouge (just before the tunnel) I noted that the barrier up the ramp leading onto the Mulsanne was open so assumed the Thursday mid day session had ended and so up we went only to be stopped by an RS4 pace car who said the track was still closed.....he then did a check and found then session had ended, looked at us and then suggested we follow him.  We were in two Porshes and an S4.

He lead us around the full track (briskly), pulled off at the pits and we carried on to we're we got on to the track.

I hit 165mph on the pit straight and can tell you that as you go under the Dunlop bridge the track seriously falls away, Indianapolis was awesome as was the Porsche curves.

A never to be repeated experience, but what an afternoon we had after that.

Late in the day I know.  Mother in law has had a stroke so we can't go.

I have 3 Houx campsite passes which are next to each other and there are 2 general enclosure tickets that go with each campsite pass.

Cost of each ticket is what I paid for them from Just Tickets which is 270 per camp pass and the two GE's.

We were searched going into Houx last year and glass bottles were taken off us - Vodka etc.  We then transferred the booze into plastic water bottles.  By the Friday the rule was forgotten.

If you are taking glass into the campsites make sure it is very well hidden.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

Dave, thanks for your offer to buy the tickets thats excellent news.

If Tim and Dave could send me their email addresses I can let you have the Paypal details. Tim do you want me to post you the tickets or are you going to pick them up at the campsite (Duval is one of my favourite tipples by the way).

Alan, no problem thanks for letting me know.

Hi Tim,

You could pay by PayPal if you wanted, otherwise happy to meet you there on the day.  We are usually on the campsite on Thursday afternoon, what time would you expect to arrive.

I'll let you know the exact price when I get back to UK this weekend.

Best wishes

Wishing everyone a great LM.

I have two spare passes for Camping Houx which is the site with numbered spaces and power supply. Each camp pass comes with two General Enclosure tickets. The tickets are next to each other, in fact I have 5 passes in total, so you'll be next to us !
I have no wish to profit from the tickets hence for sale at what I paid for them from Just Tickets circa 200 each.  I already have the tickets so can post straight away.They are located on the grassy bit of the campsite about 100 metres in from the entrance at the Houx Annexe end, which means they are close to bogs showers and the tram.
Happy to sell separately or together. Any queries please let me know.
Am currently in Portugal trying to play golf, not very well, so can post on Monday.

Hi there, not sure if you are sorted but I have two Houx passes for sale, I have the tickets already.  They are adjacent pitches next to us, available due to dwindling numbers.
Each ticket comes with two GE, thats how I bought them.
Let me know if interested please, cost will be what I paid for them plus post or meet you there or on ferry, we go Wed night Portsmouth to Caen.

Mr Andy Rob will indeed be gracing us with his presence, well at least his body will be there. Where his head will be has yet to be fathomed !!

Evening all,

Bit late in the day I know , but the Up North Crew are heading down via the late afternoon Dover / Calais next Wednesday. Should be arriving at LM anytime now.

We're on Houx as usual and its the usual crowd.

Have a good one everyone.


Rusty, I expect we'll find you in the Irish bar on Friday afternoon ?

Nice one Barry, many thanks.

Hello to all, have'nt been here in a long while, happy new year everyone !

Anyway.  Camp site passes are confirmed but sadly travel arrangements are still to be resolved.

Just looking at Brittany Ferries (v expensive) prices looks like we are doing the tunnel this year which is something we have not done for a while.  Looking at the CA guide from last year it says that it is autoroute all the way down from northern ports.

We are thinking of the tunnel at say 6 in the evening on the Wednesday.

Can someone please clarify for me, does this mean its dual carriageway the whole way and is it toll free. How long, 4 hours ish ?

If we went via Paris on the peage would it be quicker. 

Thanks all.
