    The 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours has been moved back one week “at the request of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in order to harmonise the world calendar of motor racing events”. Hopefully that means no F1 clash again!

    The race will take place on June 22nd-23rd. It will be its 81st running and the 90th anniversary of the first race. The test will be on Sunday 9th June.

    I hope it also doesn’t clash with Goodwood. Whether I go or not, it would be a shame if it did.

    @Matt90 Goodwood is usually the 1st weekend of July, or has been the past 2/3 years, which itself avoids F1 races. I think it should be safe next year too *hopefully*

    After properly getting into Le Man, Im quite pleased with this as it will avoid F1 clashes and I usually have the last weekend of June off, a double bonus.
