I have received a few minutes ago a definite yes from Joerg and I have purchased the eTickets for the track entrance as well as the tribune.
I shall rework the share of the costs for the gite which I have not paid for yet. Not due before May. Updated list below. We are now 8.
Great news. Armin informs me that our friend Harald, who was last in Le Mans 20 years ago, would like to participate.
I managed to organise a entrance ticket as well as a ticket in the tribune we are all booked in.
There is a possibility that Joerg (Forster) might also come. He almost made his mind up a couple of days ago. It would be his second time. The first time was in 2015 when we went alone him and I.
Anyway a short recap on the participants
Another bit of good news, Armin decided to join us. Not is first time there. I have purchased the entrance and tribune ticket. We are all set.
Good news. Acki’s son Georg is also coming. His 1st time. I have already arranged the necessary entrance and tribune tickets as well as a second car parc ticket.
Also I have received by email all the tickets which I have already printed.
Received the Gite rental agreement confirmation this morning. All is set up. Payment instructions (deposit & final payment) will follow shortly apparently.

Planning has certainly started. In fact it is almost over..
Today I have booked the Gite in Daumeray. Same as last year.
I have also booked 4 tickets, 1 car parc ticket (the usual parking rouge) and 4 tribute tickets. Tribune T3 ” La Chapelle” which has a large TV screen across the track. I though tit was about time we ere on the other side of the Dunlop bridge.
