Nardulas reporting from the track that pit lane is now a restricted area, so unless you want to pay, that's the end of one of the true highlights for the fan at the 12 hour.
That's business i guess.

Is this for Thursday evening? If so, it's a terrible disappointment, and one of the true reasons I love the event. What a shocking decision, and well hidden until this point in time...

No mention of Thursday there? 21 bucks for a pitwalk is serious overs. No thanks.

In the blurb on the 12hr website. It states that "Pit Paddock Access

Disappointed is probably an understatement. Walking along pit lane in the days preceding the race is the highlight of the weekend for me.

Went for a walk this morning, only 3 garages were open, but it was a great start to what I was assuming would be a brilliant week. Came back this evening and was confronted by a rent-a-cop, who tells us that pit lane is a restricted area and will be for the rest of the week. Closest we were allowed was walking on the pit straight.

Couple more garages open, few more cars to see - from a reasonable distance of course.

But if that’s the end of the Thursday pit-walk, I’d have to reconsider spending the whole week here in future

So if I am reading right here, they want people to pay to walk along the front of pitlane after hours on the Friday night and Saturday night as has become a bit of a tradition over the past few years?

Does anyone know the story with Turn 1? I've heard the spectator area on the exit of Turn 1 is reserved for a Porsche corporate area? Does that include the bridge? It's been a good spot for getting pictures over the years

Hopefully it may have only been for tonight. Tuesday night usually has a 6pm curfew but due to the sup regs being changed to allow parking up today they told me there may have been security on tonight if I needed to stay back. Now with the container issues and teams arriving late they have kept the paddock open.
Everyone in the paddock area was to be in a fluro vest today so that might have had something to do with not being allowed in.

At a racetrack near you, most likely putting a sticker on a racecar.

What a shame, was really only a matter of time though. With crowd numbers increasing each year, it was always going to get to a point were they had to control the numbers of people entering pit lane. That, and the fact that there's always someone looking to make more money out of the event.

I assume you can still get the back of all the garages to see the cars and crews up close?

I just spoke to John Casey and there is no change regarding pit lane access.
I'm currently walking up and down pit lane freely.
