The coach is due to arrive at the circuit mid morning, if it's like last year when I flew to paris and went by coach, it'll be lunch time, perhaps we can meet up sometime and have a drink and/or mal. It would be good to be with fellow enthusiasts of the marque and put faces to names. Martin

Sounds like a good idea, we'll have to arrange something a bit closer to the time.
A friend of ours is displaying/selling his paintings/prints in the village so we'll probably be around there before the race.
BTW, are you an ACO member?

No, can you be? Is it  case of logging on to their website? Martin

If you are a regular LM visitor then ACO membership is worthwhile having.
Full details at http://www.lemans.org, but the highlights are, cheaper tickets, cheaper beer, free programme, cheaper beer, cheaper food, cheaper beer, free access to the welcome centre, cheaper beer, discount on aco merchandise, cheaper beer....

I'll find it and perhaps see you there. I seem to remember from last year that the village has been re-built for this year, is that right? Martin

hhhmmm sort of.  The Welcome Centre is being rebuilt next year close to the track, at the moment it is at the back of the village, big blue and yellow glass fronted building.  The rest of the village was flattened some time ago,and they are currently rebuilding it...
If you go to http://www.lemans.org/sport/sport/dossiers/travaux/index_gb.html you can see how far they have got.....
