the photo on my previous post of my Westy and the TR4 is on the Maison Blanche campsite.

Its a good spot and inside the permitter fence so much safer, and only a short walk to the action, although the area with the Flat4 gang inside the circuit is a great spot

Where are the Flat4 lot camping?

Just about to book camping and were probably going for Bleu Nord, as Maison Blanche is sold out.

Portsmouth to Le Havre seems to be our preferred route too, but I think we might camp nearby on Thursday night and crossing Friday morning.

Bleu Nord AC26. The BBQ will be lit and the beers will be cold, would be good to meet up with some Splits before we head south to the coast and then onto the Costa Brava. Three weeks in the Bus and Puck, heaven! 8) :drunken: :bounce: Thinking about getting some Kuhlspeed Ram Air Scoops to help when towing the Puck in the heat of the Med, what do you think?

Bleu Nord ????? Coooooooeeeeeeee, don't be alarmed by the amount of femanin males there, its allocated for them, but over the years has become a mixed Camp site :wink: :wink: they really are a good fun bunch. Enjoy 8O and don't forget to share your experience of being In Le Mans.

Anyone there already that can pick up our tickets??

The guy carrying ours has broken down. We can get reprints from the office but we won't get there before the office closes.
