Just need to sort out travel & the scrum of getting tickets, on that (really odd) ACO website

In my calendar! Smiley

I must be getting old because Bleu Nord campsite was way noisier than I remember it having been after being inside the circuit last few years. Loud music and fireworks all Friday night and less but the same Sunday. Saturday night we were out for some reason...Loud generator next to my head (why do generator users always put them far from themselves and hence closer to their neighbours - so considerate!) meant little sleep which would have been fine if we'd been able to catch up in the day but the heat made that impossible in a tent.
Toilets and showers were OK but not great but no water point in the heat was poor in my view. We found one but I can't remember not having a water point before.
There was some daft behaviour but not too bad, only time I got worried some drunk guys were setting off paper lanterns (great idea in a grassy area in that heat!) which wouldn't rise and kept landing on vehicles and at one point a tent. They thought it hilarious.
With all the above we had a cracking trip - great race, great weather. Found a great stop over near Calais on the way back. I just camped in the wrong place and need to find somewhere more civilised for next year.
Anybody camped down at Arnage or Mulsanne can give a review?

I was actually surprised walking in and out with a rucksack that it was only searched once when I left the museum on Sunday - presumably to check for theft. I also saw a bunch of guys walking around with beer holding utility belts full of glass bottles who hadn't had any entry problems.
I felt security was too light to be honest.

French spectators seemed to get in the usual supply of alcohol though.

Another cracking year. Weather top notch, a little too hot for a pasty Northerner maybe. Campsites very quiet this year. Returning at 2am from town on Friday onto Houx, everyone had gone to bed! Nice to catch up with a few people, never enough time it seems to catch up with everyone. Drivers parade and town were brilliant fun again, as was the slightly drunk cycle home- kebab in hand! Sneaking onto the straight half way along Indianpolis in the early hours was memorable, although not as memorable as it was for the two French lads who appeared and sat within feet of our hiding spot. They shat themselves when we got up to leave  Grin

All in all a top weekend. Roll on 2018

I also thought it was well done. Didn't take up too much time and they even had a sense of humour. Top marks ACO.
