Yes, our plans are well underway. We have booked 21 ferries out of Portsmouth on the Tuesday, did this about 8 weeks ago and they were nearly full!

Our gites are booked, we have 4 this year, two in Pontvallan, 1 in Le Lude and 1 further South in Noyant, but you hardened campers will probably frown on that Smiley

Anyway if you see a trail of noise Maseratis blasting around the circuit, thats probably us.

The only thing we are looking for is a new place to hang out around the circuit. We have done Arnage town to death for 10 years plus and need a new place but the lack to bars open is staggering. There is one in Mulsanne but thats tucked right out the way.
My mum is between Le lude and la flèche which is where I'll be staying for a few weeks apart from race weekend so I'll keep my eye out!

Just trying to organise my parties travel from Le man home via trains as I am staying on and they are in work the next week also ferry times for me now

You will know where we are then, we are actually in Disse Sous Le Lude, about a mile or 2 South. There is a sort of man made lake with a beach over in Le Flèche isn't there?...sounds like its crying out for some topless English petrol heads, a few BBQ's and some beer?

 Hi all, been away for a long time - no, NOT at HM's pleasure!!  Grin

Our 2017 LM is now booked and (finally) paid for.  The last gite (Chigne) was great but too far to be convenient so have managed to find something a fair bit closer.

Having had to miss last year's race - I'm already getting the packing list for June! (I know, sad.......but enjoyable, at the same time!)

Yeah, stickered up, as always. The price may drop, often does, but they were offering a 10% discount on week one orders and I couldn't resist - another step on the way  Wink.
Gone quite 'low key' this year, all colour coordinated and subtle(ish). Had to stick a little circuit outline on the back of the wifes Clio this morning, she hasn't seen it yet but wont mind.  Smiley

We are not in La Flèche, no, we are in Disse Sous Le Lude (just South of Le Lude). Last year we had a visitation from the local plod, apparently making too much noise outside the Mayor of Le Ludes house.

The next time I went past, I turned my car off and just glided past in silence Smiley
