I recall Mazda doing pretty well with their rotary engine design, winning Le Mans in 91' (stealing it out from under the noses of Jaguar if I remember correctly).

Be interesting to see what they might come up with for future races.

Yes, I forgot that Ford also own Aston Martin.

Looks like the earliest possible Jag action won't be for several years if at all.

Still, at least we have the DBR9 to cheer on.

With the recent demise of Jaguar's Formula One team, I'm wondering whether Jaguar will ever return to sportscar racing.

Do CAers reckon there is any chance of this?

If so, how long would it be before Jaguar are at Le Mans again?

Quite a few people go to Le Mans via Plymouth, usually on the Tursday before the race.

The atmosphere is pretty laid back on the ferry, with a mixed crowd, young and old.

One big advantage of going via Plymouth is that Brittany Ferries don't seem to jack the price up like they do on the Portsmouth route. I've been as a foot passenger for about 50 return, and a mate took us in his car for about 160 return.

The only downside is the relatively long drive to and from the circuit, but you can't have everything I suppose.

The fishing is said to be pretty good by the way.

Hi to all CAers here, especially anyone from the South West.

I'm from Plymouth and make the trip to Le Mans via Roscoff every year.

Hope to see some of you in 2005 at Beausejour campsite and around the circuit.

Just got my invoice from Just Tickets, and will be camping at Beausejour this year instead of my customary abode at houx Annexe.

What can anyone tell me about Beausejour regarding facilities etc?

Are their toilet and shower blocks for instance?

'La Ronde Infernale' is a top-notch piece of footage, and well worth getting hold of if you can.

I'd like to see the other films mentioned on the thread as well.

Great pics, stunning car.

Can't wait for Le Mans 2005 now!

Personally I have been known to make the journey on foot from Plymouth to Le Mans and back. It's far cheaper going from Plymouth to Roscoff, then via train to Le Mans from Morlaix. The other ferry services all seem to jack their prices up in Le Mans week.

Also, I usually walk from Le Mans train station to the track and seem to get there far more quickly than if I'd driven.

If anybody is heading down via Plymouth on the Tuesday night ferry from Plymouth for Le Mans 2005, have a good one.

Just wondering if anyone else is going on foot this year, as I am.

 ???Also, are there any unofficial camping areas in the event that some officious ticket checker turfs me out for not having a permit. I'm reliably informed, courtesy of this site no less, that I don't need one and can walk onto a site and just pitch my tent, but just in case, are there any areas of tolerated camping?

Thanks guys, this means I'm definately going this year. Much obliged. And I meant banking in the financial sense of the word, fnar!
252  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Banking/Camping Permits on: May 18, 2004, 03:19:55 pm
I'm told by Just Tickets that I don't need a camping permit as I'm travelling on foot and not taking a vehicle of any kind. Is this accurate?

Also, are there any banking facilities on-site that will let me draw money using a Maestro or Cirrus card?
