And just a quick kudos shout for "stip". As good as his word, the ticket arrived this morning.

Ferry booked, high-viz packed and excitement turned up to eleven!

Cheers Barry

I have been getting to the Classic every other year, so some of the changes will be familiar to me, but I don't like the look of concreting the grass at my beloved Arnage....

I try to camp at Arnage whenever possible - its a laid-back little site with slightly fewer sound systems (Electric Light Orchestra at 80dB next to my tent throughout Thursday/Friday night in 2004 is a particularly grim memory) but I'll certainly look out for CA flags as I wander about.

Some of you may have met me as Tim D on the 10-tenths board, but I've only ever been a lurker on CA over the years.

So - my name's Tim, and I am a Sartheoholic.

Le Mans experience

Main race 1996,97,98,99,00,01,02,03,04,05, 07,08 then I started a business and got married....
Test day 2002,03,04
Classic ALL OF 'EM! (the good lady wife likes the Classic too, but watching Peugeot fail to catch Audi in the rain in 2007 put her off the main race)

Best year? Would have to be 2003 watching the Bentleys coming home.

Best moment? Managing to get access via a friendly landowner to watch the classics going through the Mulsanne kink in the dead of night. The sight of Bobby Rahal fully committed in a Porsche 917 will stay with me forever.

Best vantage point? Either Arnage in the early evening or dawn breaking over Mulsanne Corner

Coolest moment? Joining Team Taisan in the Shanghai restaurant the night before the race, simply being in the right place at the right time.

Weirdest? 2007 - we were camped next to a Czech fan on his first Le Mans trip. He had no English, we had no Czech, so we muddled along in pidgin German. So we learned about Mike Rockenfeller's retirement from an excited Czech shouting "Das Audi ist kaput. Englischer fliegers mit Spitfire. Takka-takkka-takka-takka..."

To pay for it all I run a little bookshop in the depths of the Derbyshire peak district. And I think I've flogged enough to afford the pilgrimage in 2015.

Evening!

If that's still available, I'd very much like to give it a good home.

Tim
