Morning ,

as a birthday present my family have bought me tickets to lemans classic 2016..... Through 'travel destinations'.

So I am definitely going......so as time passes so quickly thought I might as well start a thread now and hopefully get a few cars trackside.

So are you going ?

As I finalise my Le Mans plans I have been offered two on circuit camp sites at Hunaudieres on the inside of the Tertre Rouge corner, and on the famous Porsche Curves.

From those who have been already ...... Which camp site is best ?...??

If there is gonna be a number of MM cars there ..... Can we all park at the same place ?...
Any suggestions gratefully received.

There's some interesting news about to break so watch this space.

Needless to say every Mini Marcos owner should make every effort to be there.

There's a faint chance I could make something like that, obviously without a car, though.

If I were to go as a spectator, what do I need to do re: lodging, etc? Are there MM club arrangements I'd want to be aware of? We've been talking about doing a roadtrip in the UK, and a trip across the channel could be a fun addition...

Talked to the fiancee, and I think we may be tentatively on board for shooting for this. We would probably do a bit over 2 week trip, with a few days down at the lemans classic, take a ferry over to UK, and then do a roadtrip either up to Scotland or ferry over to Ireland.

I obviously won't have anything other than a cheapo rental car, but we will enjoy being spectators .

There are camp sites around the circuit and b&b accommodation further afield but you need to book up early. Check the Marcos Sportscar Enthusiasts forum for more information nearer the time. Also se Grant's post above.

There will be a Marcos club area inside the circuit. Passes and admission tickets are usually booked by Isobel Chivers of Club Marcos International. You can also get tickets and accommodation through third party companies.

Now two friends of ours came to stop with us a couple of weeks ago and i told them about the Le Man 2016, and talked about a trip in the Jem , He phoned me a week later as he had Google it and he was up for going, So we could make one as well,

Richard is the Club doing something ?????????????????????????????????,

It would be nice if Brian and fiance made it , But i don't think you would be in a cheap Rento as i don't know of any and when you see the price of our gas, But don't be put of as our island is only small so the milage you do would will compensate , I think , But i reckon you will tell me that you have already been here!!!!!!! Steve could fly over and make a Holiday + tour of Europe and of course UK

Goff,

I actually have been to the UK a few times -- mostly to London. The only bit of driving there, though, was back in 2005, I did a road trip from London to Canterbury, then along the south coast, and up into Wales and back to London. We managed to find the crappiest rental car ever -- Normally when you rent a car, they note any scratches on the car before you take it out, the guy just drew a squiggly circle around the whole car. The car always seemed like it was barely going to start, too. But it was dirt cheap! These days, I'm not totally broke, so I'll manage to find something a touch nicer, though .

Shortly before I met Charlotte (fiancee), she had done a road trip around Ireland with some of her friends, and is eager to go back, though Scotland is high on her list as well.

At this point, unless something significant comes up, I'm pretty sure we're in. I'm going to start looking into tickets and accomodations at the lemans classic.

Therre will be a combined Marcos club stand which is organised by CMI. I hope we shall get a bit more space than in recent years. I don't know if MMOC is doing anything special. I guess it's down to us if we want to drive down together. I'll probably go on the Wednesday night via Portsmouth - Le Havre or maybe Caen, and come back on Monday afternoon. I might have a spare seat, or possibly a spare car if I put it back together in time, but I've got to get to Lithuania and back first.

It's not all signed and sealed yet, but MOC have got something something special planned for LMC 2016!

I will be there with at least 1 car. I hope my girl drives the other one (she likes the car more and more, which is a good point till she keeps it for herself!)

Now waiting for the good news from MOC. Will there be any combined deal from the Le Mans Classic and MMOC? And is the camping together?

Regards,
Joost

That's difficult. If we want to camp together at one of the official ACO sites we'll need to book together and we'll need to book early to get a site on the inside of the circuit. Karting Nord is convenient but noisy. Unfortunately Isobel doesn't do the campsite bookings at the same time as the event tickets which would make life easier. I think the MOC guys usually book through Travel Destinations who have their own camp sites. Some people camp at Darren and Debbie's place which is some distance from the circuit.
