Re: Le Mans Classic Club Event

Update for this event.
I have arranged to extend the deadline for our club entries to 10th January as some members missed the original deadline, so get those entries in ASAP, or wait another 2 years!
So far I have received completed entry forms for 60 members and 25 cars.

Re: Le Mans Classic Club Event

Roy,

Prices on LeMansClassic.com are as follow:

Club full entry for the week end : 37
Track time : 105

May i ask why we have a such difference with prices from the GT40 HC prices ?

45 (65) for the entry ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Don't consider my question as an attack but just a wonder, may be there is a good explanation.

Hi fred,
The price includes the Marquee that we hire for our pitch, alternatively we just have a roped out area!

I trust that all of you going to the classic will support Robin Batt (GTD Owner/Racer), who has had his entry for the 2006 race accepted in his Jaguar E type.

Re: Le Mans Classic Club Event

For those attending Le-mans Classic in July and wanting a cheap ferry crossing that is
within a two and half hour trip from the French ports try LD Lines.com they offer
Portsmouth Le-Harve overnight crossing for Car and Driver 192.
And I have been told the service is excellent, I think they have taken over the old PO
route, a bit dearer than Speedferries Dover - Boulogne crossing but at least you don't
have the 300 mile trip down to Le-Mans,
Anybody on the Monday 3 July Night Sailing ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

Re: Le Mans Classic Club Event

For anyone interested in joining in convoy etc. I am going over on Wed 5th July 07:30hrs (FastCat), and returning on Monday 10th July 19:00hrs (normal ferry). Crossing from Poole to Cherbourg.

If anyone is interestd in doing this, get in touch (by email preferrably). I could put a few people up (or find somewhere local), and have off road parking for several cars. Only 5 miles from my house to ferry port.

Cheers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img],

Max

Re: Le Mans Classic Club Event

Roy,

Is there hotel booking or anything else you have foreseen within the group ?
I am not sure what would be the best accomodation option to be together or is everyone taking his own initiatives ?
What about the French/Belgian connection?What are your intentions?
