Schedule to be announced at the end of April.  I would image it will either be the same as last September, or they will keep it the same as it was planned for June, i.e. the Test day being on the 15th Aug.
Time will tell.

Entry list due to be announced next Tuesday I see, I presume the delay is to give any teams the chance to opt out due to the date change.

Ferry rebooked at no extra cost  Grin

I'm more of the view that the rumoured (and it is just that at the moment) date change is to allow for a crowd of some description, with June certainly having to be behind closed doors.

The ACO won't want to have to refund all of those credit notes it raised after last year, let alone not get any revenue this year.

Yup, 2023 LM looks like it will be a race not to miss Grin

Whilst I fully doubt we'll be allowed to go in June, I could see the race being delayed again if the ACO feel there is a chance that a crowd of some sort would be allowed to go at a later date. If that's not the case then I, also, expect a behind closed doors event in June.

I doubt the classic will happen this year unless enough restrictions are removed, i.e. we can go in June.

I guess the other option is to move the 24 to the Classic dates if they feel that they could allow a crowd for a summer event, mind you it is only a few weeks after the 24.

Too many variables involved at the moment though!

I think the April date for ticket sales (or not) is based on the May cutoff for refunds for credits held over from last year.

Red Bull Advanced Technology’s and ORECA plan to field cars in the hydrogen category in 2024.Watch this space.

I thought they just had the joint contract to build the spec chassis, so it will look like every other Oreca then!

There is already a backup plan for a race to be held in Europe, probably April time, if Sebring doesn't happen.

My worry with Glickenhaus is that they have had plenty of time to get at least one car built and tested, let's not forget the HyperCar regs were due to start at Silverstone last September!

I just hope they aren't going to turn up for Spa and Le Mans then disappear as others have done before them.

I hate to say it but I'm still not convinced we will be allowed to go to LM this year, or if we are that it will be a full crowd.
Whilst we may be vaccinating at a fast rate, the rest of Europe isn't.

As in all things, time will tell.

Glickenhaus have already said they will miss the first WEC round at Sebring (if it happens anyway), I don't think they have built the first car yet, let alone a second one!

Well, what a year it has been, I hope everyone has come out of it safe and sound!

It's been a year for re-assessing parts of our lives, and in some ways that has been a very good thing, even though it was forced upon us.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmases, and wish you all a safe, happy but above all heathy 2021.

Hopefully when Stroll and his buddies sell out their stake in AML to Daimler they can also dump the F1 team and return to Sportscars in one form or another.
41  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re: LM Test Day 2021 on: December 11, 2020, 09:23:25 am
Are there any hints or news on when they might start selling?
Somebody did mention "after Christmas".  The 2nd wave has slowed things down, but the vaccines should speed things up.

Plus I presume they won't start selling tickets until they are confident that there is a good chance that a reasonable crowd will be allowed, at the moment the signs still aren't good.
42  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re: LM Test Day 2021 on: December 07, 2020, 09:27:27 am
As I suspected, just the one round of scrutineering, on the Friday and Saturday prior to the test day.
43  Club Arnage / General Discussion / Re: LM Test Day 2021 on: November 27, 2020, 09:41:08 am
2 options, move scrutineering to Monday/Tuesday or do it before the test day.

There is usually scrutineering prior to the test day, so the sensible thing would be to do just the one on the Saturday prior to test day,  however....  They are French of course. Roll Eyes
44  Club Arnage / General Discussion / LM Test Day 2021 on: November 24, 2020, 09:23:39 am
I see the test day returns for next year, but on Sunday 6th, that is the Sunday prior to race weekend.

It'll be interesting to see what they do about scrutineering as that would traditionally be the first day of Pesage in town. Plus there is usually scrutineering on the Saturday prior to the test day. Will they just do it once? Time will tell I guess.

There are lots and "ifs and buts" but I think we're "Game On"  Cool

Ferry already booked/postponed in September

Agreed on the if's and but's front with no end in sight on the covid front Sad

We have credit from this years tickets, plus the ferry has been rolled over, so there won't be as much cash flow outwards for next year which is something I suppose. Like many our plans are made but the potential for change  remains.
