Well. I just spoke to Nick (andynick) he tells me he would like a shirt too so that seems to be another two for you  Robbo, XL I expect. Nick if I got it wrong tell Robbo as soon as possible. Cheque in the post today for 18, OK?

Airfix 1/32 scale kits are quite good for slot modifying - there must have been a Commer one made at some point - I'll go check ebay.

As for the venue, I have to say that I have the ultimate Scalextric track designed (but not built yet - got all the track but needs to be outdoors and no good weather yet). Just under 13 metres (tad over 40 feet) x 5.5 metres (18 feet). Will dig out the design.....

Well I used to know the AIRFIX catalogue by heart but they never did do a Commer, Though Dinky did. I wonder if Triang/minic did one that may be raceable, if so.

I used to scratchbuild aircraft , ships and carts and wagons from plasticard, might have to look into it, could be fun.

Take a while I'm still getting ready to put a BMW 5 speeder into Lara, the Midge, in time for the French blast.

If you are ordering  a  t shirt i can throw in some "tape" for taping off your pitch, Free of charge. I have rolls of the stuff, which my company supply to me. I have red and white or blue and white. Then just get some old copper tubing or a little 1 x 1 wooden battons , cut them down , and hey presto , cheap fencing.

You can then fence off your garage area.
I think you can just about make out what i am saying in this picture. The space next to the van had a TVR in later on Friday.
Photo taken on arrival on Thursday lunch time.  

Robbo, I have been thinking of having a shirt too, but I'll wait a day or so to see if Nick wants one too. I am making two for us of the car we are going in as well.

I would use a CA email addy too, but as to the blog, would you need it to be updated daily? There is a lot of commitment to doing a blog, it has to be a hobby in itself.

Hi Steve, that must be the area that a couple of ACO stewards let Nick and I into on the Saturday to see if we could find a spot for the Midget and the tent. Every thing was taped and fenced off up in that corner near the roadway, track by Houx so we came out and stopped on Antares. They didn't seem very fussed about us going in there, but obviously there wasn't any room by then. Would you mind watching over a space for us, we do have them booked after all.
Next daft question, sorry! Do you park cars between, or in front of the tents? How do you keep the places, just with the fences? When you jet off to other bits of the circuit... Smiley

Sorry if I'm being a pain, but if it was just Nick and I alone I wouldn't be as concerned. Just having others tagging along on the strength of just how much we liked last year is a bit of a liability. Roll Eyes

Ditto, far too much like someone sitting here at the moment, typing and remembering the last time I got ..... enjoying myself, and others.

Libra, too.

If you're booked on the P&O 10:00 Wednesday 9th June Dover - Calais ferry

Steve - I shall look forward to meeting you there  Grin and hearing the veritable cacophony of noise - I'm booked on the same ferry.   However, you may have to excuse me from competing against 10xV8s with just the might of an MGA's 1622cc four-pot.......  Grin Grin Grin

Excellent, are you driving down to LM in one stint?
Our encampment will be in Houx Annexe from Wednesday early evening.  

What is the form about camping at Houx Annexe? Our group have booked spaces for five Spridgets and a Volvo Amazon. Are they kept reserved or do you have to get there early and fight off allcomers and the fearsome "pikeys"?
We will be there on Friday early afternoon I expect. Last time I just chucked up a tent on the grass at Antares before the race on the Saturday, only "lost" one tent peg while away watching the noisy motorcars until the early hours.

This year, ah will be mostly driving the growling beast  Grin

Returning on the Pride of Le Havre on the Monday night, Nick (andynick) and I were parked alongside this in the hold. A wonderful noise when she started up to drive out.

Bill   Cool

(am I trying too hard to put pictures in here?)

And I will be in my MG Midget, Lara, again.  Cool

(Have to URL it 'cos the picture is too big for attaching, sorry)

1901  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:Modern Commer Replacement on: January 10, 2004, 01:20:51 am
here you are Perdu...

Thanks bigH, I always wanted that Dinky Toy when I was a kid. Now I have seen it... I still want it, but now the real one please. Smiley

I have been enjoying this marvellous thread for weeks,  I just realised all the old pictures had timed out. The ultimate Commer/ Le Mans link that was discussed on page 10, the Ecurie Ecosse transporter  (were there more than one of those) was at Le Mans last year too I think. I am trying to attach a picture I took in the ferry queue at Le Havre on the monday night, with two nice cars on board. I think they were both Jags, but couldn't get close enough to look while trying not to be too nosy.

Doesn't look as if the attachment is possible but I am very new at this sort of stuff.

Maybe if I just post the url...

1903  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:First Bookmark of 2004.... on: January 08, 2004, 11:26:37 pm
So, now we know why those computer comics always have a free AOL disc "onboard". Brilliant, thanks DR. Roll Eyes
1904  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:"Le Mans" the movie on Channel 5 Thursday 10am on: January 08, 2004, 11:22:31 pm
Ahh, enjoyed that this morning, even though I have the DVD had to watch....

I haven't watched it since the seventies I reckon, but I really enjoyed it too. Amazing how little the spectator areas have changed since then.

 Hated sharing it with adverts. I did tape it though.
1905  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re:"Le Mans" the movie on Channel 5 Thursday 10am on: January 05, 2004, 11:18:25 pm
Hi all, I'm new here. (As if you won't notice! Sorry!) Thanks for telling us about that film. Thursday is my day off so guess how I'll be spending a couple of hours of it. Cheers. Smiley
