Hi, we're heading for Le Classic and have choice of Sommer (16)  or Leonard (20) grandstand seats , these are two either side of the aco stand (18) any recommendations would be appreciated, i'm thinking the Sommer stand is of the more recent "semi permanent" type but would offer a better overall view of pit lane ?  thanks Tony

Sommer is about opposite the last 4 garages on the pit lane, good view of the pit exit and depending where they put it a screen.
There is one grandstand between ACO and Leonard so opposite they first section of garages, probably a big screen within sight, but I haven't been to the Classic for a few years so don't know where all the big screens are.

One other note if you want to guarantee staying dry - none of the grandstands are closed at the ends, so if it does rain and depending on which way the breeze is blowing you can still get pretty wet (I speak from direct experience!) so try to obtain seats about a third of the way up, and well in from the ends  Wink

Would agree with that was in the front row of one of the covered grandstands and got soaked when it rained, also at the southern end of one of them when it rained, got soaked!
