Re: Around the world gt le mans classic

Joey,
Welcome to the forum!
How would you like to drive the full Le Mans track for ½ hour between afternoon and evening practice on the Friday of the Classic? Much safer than the 2 or 3 parade laps on the Saturday morning.
Go to the Club website, where you will see the offer. All you have to do is join the Club and send in the form. There are also links to accommodation, entry tickets and the whole 9 yards.
All GTs, GT40s and Cobras are eligible (and probably Mustangs at a stretch!)
You will also all be eligible to join us in our central, highly-sought-after Club enclosure for the whole weekend.

Joey,
Anyone who has done the mileaqe that you guys are doing will be worth meeting!
Please make sure to say hallo at the Classic. We will be assembling in our area from early morning Friday onwards.
Yes, we do accept PayPal and look forward to welcoming you for the track laps, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive the same track in very similar conditions to the greats of the 60s.

Joey, I second Michael's post. Enjoy for all of us and get plenty of photos.

BTW, Brian signed my car when I purchased mine from his son who was involved in the sale. I too attended the Amelia Island event and took an access panel from my car with me and was able to get a few great signatures to go along with Brian's. Hobbs, Bell, Agapio, etc. ENJOY!!

Once you have my account do whatever you have to do.....Im in for the lap.....the photos ,the club joining ,the koombiyahs the whole works....thanks...gtjoey1314

Tony & everyone else- sorry to put a dampner on this, but whereas Cobras are welcome, I'm afraid the french organisers have strictly forbidden Mustangs etc.. only GT's, GT40's, Cobra's, Lola's, Panterra's. This is not my ruling, or that of the club, but directly from Gautier Rossignol. Best Wishes.. Andrew (Chairman- GT40 Enthusiasts Club)

Just to clarify.. Mustangs are welcome at the LMC... naturally.. but not on the track session on Friday evening. They can participate at will on the Saturday morning's run... Andrew
