Since our holiday in France and Spain (and the fun drive back), [livejournal.com profile] november_girl and I have been throwing around the idea of getting a convoy together to do a Le Mans trip next year. That's June 11-12th 2011.

The idea would be to set out together from the UK sometime in the week preceding the race weekend, and make progress across the country, building the convoy as we went, to Dover. There we would load our chosen vehicles onto a ferry, and pootle France-wards. Reaching the continent, another trundle towards Le Mans, arriving in time for practice. Stay for the race, camping overnights, and then leave the Monday afterwards, and head back to the UK.

Your choice of vehicle is unimportant. From Mondeo to Esprit, it doesn't matter. We'll hopefully get some matching signwriting done, and have the opportunity to decorate the cars in proper road trip stylee; but the choice of vehicle is entirely free (and no need to think that you'd be embarassed at the event either - we saw a Vauxhall Meriva with Le Mans stickers on the way back). We'll investigate the possibility of radios to keep the convoy in touch too.

So... who fancies it?

Just to add that we'd be hoping to have a couple of larger cars about so that those with boot space sufficient only for a keg of beer and a spare pair of shoes have somewhere to put their tent. Contributions may be requested for those using this.

Also, any "signwriting" will be removable without mucking up anyone's paint job. Really I suspect it'll be some sort of big non-sticky type sticker to put on the sides of the car with a "team name" of some sort.

Don't know if Le mans does car coulours or team colours (not being a motor fan)

But if anyone wants florist ribbon in green, gold or plum we will have LOADS that can be used.

Hmmm, tempting.

Need to think further...

I quite fancy it and S is into his motor racing - will poke him about it. Could be a struggle if it's schooltime for kids (no rellies nearby for us you see).
