I will be there, trip #6, can't wait.

Going Thursday to Monday, camping in Expo, group of 20. Not bothering with the 130, taking my VW T4 instead, to properly equip our camp with all mod cons.

It's gonna be a good one!

I'll be working at Le Mans again this year, arriving Wednesday morning and leaving on Monday night. Sadly I won't be taking the 130i either, but a rented motorhome instead.

Which team are you with Chris? or are you just supporting anyone with your 'boxes' in their car?

Went last year in my old 320td, had as much fun getting there as we did watching the race. Fantastic roads over there, not to mention the great performance cars you often end up in convoy with.

Missing out this year sadly as one of my mates arranged his wedding for the same weekend :( - i'm guessing his other half picked the date !

Hope you guys who do make it over there have a great weekend....

Hi Richard, I'm there in a general support role to our customers - I think we've got something like 21 boxes running this year!

Hi All

Yes I'm making the annual pilgrimage (14th year for me) along with 5 friends, arriving Thursday leaving Monday and staying again at Camping Houx.

It's not my turn to drive this year so will be leaving the Coupe with the Wife (not sure if this is a good idea !!) and traveling down in an Audi R8, Porsche Carrera 4S & Skyline GTR, should be fun.

Would be good to say hello to anyone else who is going to be there.

I will be going down on the Monday as we have a house 150m from Porsche curves. I want to spend a full week working on my tan whilst slowly supping cheap red wine.

Sausages for Brekkie, Steaks for dinner. The communal BBQ we have will be fired up on Monday and remain lit for pretty much 7 days and nights, I cannot wait!

Better late than never? :oops:

Its an amazing location. A very close friend of mine is the owner of http://www.whiterabbitracing.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and I have been helping him arrange and run the camp for a number of years now. We have a great group of people that come with us every year.

Mods - happy to remove link if this is seen as a shameless plug.
