Just a small selection from the many letters received from our Le Mans guests.
For almost twenty years we have welcomed guests to the Le Mans 24hrs and latterly the Le Mans Classic from all corners of the world. Many write expressing their appreciation for the time spent with us, some also offering welcome constructive comments on how we can continue to improve our service. Just a few examples are below.
It was a pleasure to have met you both again, thank you for the impeccable organization.
Le Mans Classic Friday was splendid and we managed to see just about every car in the paddock and various parking areas.
What makes this event outstanding is the spectators car parks, I have never seen so many great road cars assembled together.
The Friday dinner was one of the most enjoyable I have had, we could not stop laughing and giggling!!! The company was splendid. All true motor enthusiasts and very nice people. It was luck we got to sit with them!!
Should you ever plan to visit Tuscany please call on me.
My very best to you both,
John M Chianti Italy
Thanks again for a great weekend we all really enjoyed ourselves and just wanted to say thank you for helping the Forget Me Not Charity and for looking after us so well in Le Mans
Howard and Heather P
Just a quick note to say thanks to you and Josie for a great weekend. We realise the hard work that must go on behind the scenes to make it all run smoothly – can’t wait for the next one!
Lawrence & Jackie K
Thanks yet again for looking after us so well over last weekend. It is always a great pleasure to see you knowing that all will go smoothly. I am quite sure it is a great feat of organisation and management both in setting everything up as well as dealing with us all during the event. Also a particular thank you to Josie for making us both so welcome at Bois Simon - and for the wonderful breakfasts. My brother, Jeremy, enjoyed the weekend immensely and will remember the banquet on Friday night for quite some time!
I hope you had a successful, and stress free classic! We had a great weekend. I just wanted to say thank you very much for your help, especially with providing the BBQ and also dropping off the extra t-shirts to ensure everyone in the group had one. The BBQ went down very well, and it was great to be able to enjoy the really warm weather on Thursday night. Ed H
Hello Tony and Josie,
May I thank you on behalf of myself and Grahame for possibly the best year ever.
We were very impressed with the upmarket Polo shirts and if you have any medium sized items left or are able to obtain further garments I would be interested in purchasing one.
Here's to 2016. Take care you two and keep in touch.
Hey Tony hope you have recovered from France and Le Mans. Ann and I had so much fun this year we can’t thank you enough. We have so many good memories of our Le Mans trip and we are both looking forward to our next visit. We wish you and Josie the very best and hope you will look us up if you are ever in Texas.

Thank you for the photos, it was wonderful in Le Mans, thank you for the whole organization, see you next year,
Viet and Mathias Germany
Just thought I would drop you a line to firstly thank you for your absolutely great hospitality at the Le Mans Classic earlier in the month. We both really enjoyed it - indeed my mate Fred has already said he wants to go back in 2014 for the classic but I guess you won't be taking any bookings just yet ! The trip back was not so pleasant for us - the smell of cheese from the boot was overpowering ! We did get back safe and sound though.
Dear Tony & Josie,
Thank you very much for the hospitality shown to us at Le Mob and a special thanks to you and your wife. Your team where a delight and most helpful, thank you all. By the end of this week we will have all images on our web site www.focus-events.co.uk just look for Classic Le Mans 2012. If there is interest from anyone please ask them to contact me direct and I will sort a special price to them. Contact no’s 077 1179 1150 or 01 273 907956
The Le Mans Classic seems distant already, but was certainly enjoyable. It makes for good memories, and it seems the boys that come on the 24Hrs can't get enough of it. Good stuff!
Dear Tony & Josie,
We have just returned from our extended trip to the Le Mans Classic and Brittany and wanted to thank you both for all your hard work in organising the Le Mob event. Everything went without a hitch from the moment we arrived in Tennie. Mme Deschamp is a sweetheart and we could not have been more comfortable at "Vauplet". The only thing that we lacked was the necessary stamina, probably as a function of our "pensioner" status! We will have no hesitation in recommending your tours to others in the future.
Don and Trish M Scotland
Just wanted to say thank you for a great weekend staying with you at Bois Simon. Thanks particularly for including us in your informal BBQ on Wednesday as well as everything else. The banquet at L'Abbaye was a good as ever - a real culinary experience and for me the social highlight of weekend. The company was better than ever and we have made some good friends that we hope to see again. In summary - enjoyed every minute. Also a special thanks to Jose for looking after us so well. Wonderful indulgent breakfasts, good company, as well as making sure we had everything we needed in Le Petit Oiseau. Can think of no improvements!
Very best wishes to you both and thanks again.
We just want to say a big thank you to you and Josie for making the Le Mans Classic such a great success,
all your hard work was much appreciated. It's always good to meet up with old friends. We are looking forward to the next one.
Rob and Ingrid C
Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we enjoyed the Le Mans Classic weekend. The whole experience was fantastic and the organisation of the Le Mob events was superb. So a big thank you to yourself and Josie - we have every intention of returning in 2014 no doubt with others joining us..
Many thanks again
Dear Tony & Josie,
Just a short note to say thank you to you and your team for a fantastic weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Please give me the heads up for the next one
Richard and Janet B
Dear Tony & Josie,
Thank you for our experience at Chateau D’Eporce and our second Le Mans Classic. Both Fred and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Well organised, great reception, perfect dining area, perfect camp site, functional facilities, good solid meals and also extremely good service and your ancillary shop, also with good prices
Our thanks to you both and to your excellent team.
Dear Tony and Josie,
Having just got back and beginning to unpack, we felt we should write to say thank you very much for a superb time. We appreciate all the effort and hard work you put in to make the event so enjoyable for everyone.
By the way, we would like to be penciled in for next year, same place same room if possible.
Lawrence and Jackie K
I just wanted to pass on the thanks of everyone in my group for arranging Chateau Coulans and all our entry passes etc. The weekend was fantastic, and much of that was down to you and your team. If possible, I'd very much like to put my name down for Coulans for the next classic, as everyone is keen to stay there again.
Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed this weekend - the setting, the people and of course the cars made for a great time and all of the guys commented on how civilised the whole thing was.
You and your team run a great operation and I would recommend you to anyone seeking out a great place to stay for the races at Le Mans.
Just a quick note to thank you and your team for the Le Mob Classic Le Mans arrangements .
Vauplet and Madame and Monsieur Deschamps were just fantastic , nothing was too much trouble ,the two Lotus 7s got covered garaging (,which she kindly offered) , the homemade food and rooms were great . We also asked if she would prepare a Sunday night meal which we would pay for , she obliged and we had a absolutely fantastic meal with wine from their cellar.
Tennie village was also very pleasant and the local restaurant Auberge du Petit Pont had good food and was excellent value.
I just wanted to thank you, Josie and all your team for a fantastic Le Mans Classic.
The Suite at the Coach House was an unexpected surprise and provided a pleasant change from our always enjoyable camping arrangements.
I wanted to also thank you for getting me the track laps ticket and helping us to get that much needed battery.Please find attached an image of the SS100 proudly on show in Gace with the rest speeding around the full Le Mans circuit.
Martyn and Ron H
Now we're back in a cool, wet and windy Scotland we can reflect on a wonderful Classic Le Mans. Thanks to you, Remy and your team for the hospitality and catering. Ian and Mark enjoyed themselves immensely are talking of coming back next time. We all thought the track laps were the highlight of our weekend.
Regards to Josie and Fiona,
I agree with Jim, Tony, Mark and I had a fantastic time !
Hi Tony, just a brief note to say how much we enjoyed the weekend which undoubtedly was down to the superb organisation and friendly and helpful attitude of you and your team. The meals were of an excellent quality and good value. We hope to join you again in 2 years time.
Kind regards and best wishes.
Dear Tony and Josie,
Thank you for once again arranging our Classic weekend, your organisation and attention to detail is just right - so professional but with that essential personal touch. It was very much appreciated.
Bob and I had a great time and will be back next time. I would be most grateful if you could you please note us for an advanced booking, same again basically.
First of all many thanks for organising a great camp site at Le Mans. John and I had a superb time.
The chateau was beautiful and its position excellent. A very friendly crowd of enthusiasts and I apologise for always being amongst the last people to leave the marquee each night.
Having just dusted everything off (literally!) following last weekend's Le Mans Classic, I felt it the right time to thank you and the rest of the Le Mob team for a fantastic weekend.
The location at Château d'Eporcé and the campsite facilities were excellent, as was the weather - but perhaps a little cooler next time?
Mike and Paul W
Hello tony, I had to mail you and thank you for a great 1st time at the classic you did an absolutely brilliant job,would it be possible to book with a small deposit for next time as we would really like to have the same accommodation with Kathy and Maurice ? once again thank you for a job well done.
Hello Tony and Josie,
Can't believe it is 2 weeks almost since we got back from Le Mans - and apologise we have not been in touch earlier.
We had a great time, whilst the weather was unseasonably hot we coped, and I have to say your "campers" bar came in very useful when we got back from the track hot, tired and thirsty!!!
Thank you for allowing us to have a different room to that which we had booked, it was much appreciated.
Remy made us very welcome at the chateau, it was a pleasure to stay there and be at the "hub" of the event.
Thank you for the time and effort you put in to ensuring people enjoyed their time in Le Mans, it paid dividends I am sure.
Hope to see you again in 2012, very best regards,
Paul and Karen W
Hi Tony & Josie,
Just a line or two to say thank you to you and Josie and your team for making the Le Mans weekend a great experience. It was an inspired idea of yours to arrange for us to stay in the farm house at Bois Simon, Phillipe and Arlette made us very welcome into their home. With a very rough idea of each others language, we all got on like a house on fire as they say.
Steve Gill & John E
My friends and I had a very enjoyable stay at 'Le Petit Bois' and thoroughly enjoyed our first Le Mans Classic. Your organisation/arrangements were superb.
I understand that this event will continue to be held every other year. I would like to ask if we could have first refusal on booking Le Petit Bois for the next Le Mans Classic and we would like to book every room in the property.
Thanks for the note. We really enjoyed the stay in Le Mans. Everthing went like clockwork with no problems at all. We particularly enjoyed La Chapellerie Very comfortable indeed and friendly. We will certainly book in there again for the next classic. Thanks again, most appreciated.
Bob & I enjoyed the trip tremendously, & found our accommodation superb with Jean-Phillip & Arnelle at “Belle Fountaine” & would very much like to join Le Mob in 2012 at stay there again
Thanks for the email and I had been meaning to write a note thanking you for the excellent organization and hospitality that you organized for Classic Le Mans. The accommodation at La Belle Fontaine was brilliant and the swimming pool was most welcome in such hot weather.
Thanks again and we would definitely like to return in 2012
Martin and Jenny S
Many thanks for the mail and the nice memories. Matt and I had a great time with Le Mob at La Sarthe and we’d like to thank the whole team for their efforts and for making our stay such good experience, we plan to return!
L’Abbaye could be called simple but adequate and with the heat outside those thick walls certainly made our nights more comfortable. The banquet at L’Abbaye was magnificent too I think that I just managed to make it across the courtyard to our room before the effects of the red falling down water took hold.
Thanks again and we look forward to travelling with Le Mob again soon.
Hi Tony and Josie
Have been back in Oz for three weeks ,cold and wet here,has been the coldest winter in Adelaide for thirteen years.
Thank you again for looking after us at Bois Simon ,we thought the accommodation was lovely,we had a wonderful time at Le Mans, both at the racing and at all the banquets,we meet some great people and it was special having the chance to visit d'Eporce and L'Abbaye de Champagne .It was great that we were so close to visit Loire Valley ,which we also enjoyed,if we had not discovered the Le Mob web site non of this would have happened thank you again, it was a memorable part of our holiday.
Thanks to you both for making our visit great fun we hope to see you soon.
Love from Alan and Gaynor H
I just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks for your unbelievable hospitality. How we would have made it without you is unthinkable. I hope all goes well for you and if you should ever make a trip to the States please let us know.

Hi Tony & Josie
What can I say other than huge thanks for making us so welcome. Both George & Fergi, I think you saw, had a brilliant time also. I have a lasting image of the cars passing the restaurant window, and that sound of the cars was just awesome. Special thanks for arranging the weather, spot on even though we had to hide in the fridge on Monday for a short time.

Tony and Josie,
Thank you very much for the marvellous time at Le Mans. It was far more than I would have expected. The fellowship was great, the accommodation superb, and the race - well what can you say!!!!
Thanks again for a great time.
Porsche Club America Arizona USA
Once again thank you for organising a wonderful week at Le Mans we thoroughly enjoyed the event even though it was a German walkover. It would have been great to have had a few screaming Ferrari V12's competing and if only the MG's hadn't broken we might have had a more interesting race. Still great crack anyway, and please pass on my thanks to Josie who so ably supports your efforts.

I just wanted to send a very warm thank you for a grand time with you and your group at Le Mans. I thank you for all the hard work you put in to making everyone happy and comfortable, I know it's not an easy job. Thanks for giving me some very special memories. I know that Jerry and Pat had a fantastic time with you also. Please give my best to Josie.
Dear Tony and Team at Le Mob
Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Camp site with you for the Le Mans 24 hour race. We all had a memorable time over the weekend, so many thanks to you and your staff. Please pass on our thanks to the owner and staff of the chateau for their hospitality. Well done from the MG owners. Please let me have details as soon as they are available as we hope to be back next year. Love to Lulu the Goat.

Just spoke today with Jerry and feels that you two are super! And made their stay extremely enjoyable and can't wait until next year. As it looks, Rodney is planning to race and will be coming in May during the Le Mans practice sessions to qualify. I think you two have made more friends for life.

Dear Tony & Josie,
Thanks for what I can only describe as one of the best away events I have ever been to. The farmhouse and facilities surpassed our expectations and the company was brilliant!!! I will definitely be coming next year, hopefully with the 'Dorm boys'. Very memorable, got lots of top pics to send to you.

Dear Tony and Josie
This is just to thank you both for acting as our hosts and guides last weekend. Will and I thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Le Mans. Now that we know a little of what it is about I am sure it will not be the last. Mone seems an excellent venue and I am sure the chateau would be an experience. Particularly we would both like to thank you for making us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived and throughout the weekend. It was also a pleasure to meet such well known characters.
Best wishes and regards to you both.

Just a note to greet you on your return, we arrived back on English ground at around 6 am Monday. Sun seemed to have followed us from France. Thanks for a great week-end and especially the extra hospitality shown to Jack and Delwyn, which was much appreciated. In particular the culinary efforts on our behalf by Josie and Diana yesterday evening.
Porsche Club GB London England
Just a brief note to thank you both for all your efforts in making it such an enjoyable event for us and the rest of the group. The setting and the company were excellent and your assistance with the geography of the circuit and the AOC carpark were invaluable. I also made useful contacts whose acquaintance I look forward to renewing at some future date. Only regret was having to leave so early on Sunday. Please bear us in mind for future events and if you do get your Marcos out you know you will be most welcome at any of our CMI Scotland division meetings.

Just to say thanks for organising a brilliant trip down to Le Mans, we got going straight after the race to avoid the Monday slog. I was very impressed with all that you and Jose did for everybody at the farmhouse, fantastic, please thank her for me, I was only sad to miss out on Sundays fun. Thanks again to you both, you make an excellent team.
