8,500 collection cars, action and entertainment all day and all night long, a village on the heart of the track – Le Mans Classic is the most incredible event for any classic car or historic motorsport fan and what better way to experience it than in your very own American Motorhome or RV?!
Luxurious, comfortable and nearer the track than any other form of Le Mans accommodation, we provide your ticket to make the most of the Le Mans Classic each year alongside 123,000 fellow motorsport fans and spectators.

In addition, modifications will be made this year to improve the flow of cars and spectators so no hiccups guaranteed…just pure unadulterated vintage motorsport action!
Le Mans Classic Accommodation
As one of the race organiser’s key partners for both Le Mans Classic and Le Mans 24 Hour Race, you really can imagine yourself staying closer to the race action than ever before thanks to the preferential parking and benefits that no other accommodation supplier can offer!
In addition, it’s actually not easy to find a hotel near Le Mans, let alone one with availability as so many people book year after year, well ahead of time. So not only will you have to look for hotels further away from Le Mans circuit but you’ll also be looking at several hundred Euros per night or more for a room. Translate that into a 4 or 5-night stay and it soon adds up!
Camping at Le Mans is also possible of course, with camp sites much more reasonable, but why not just split your accommodation costs with a group of friends and live like your motorsport heroes for the weekend?!
Our luxury Winnebago RVs are delivered to the site and will be set up and waiting for your arrival from the Thursday before the race. You can even stay until the Monday morning after the race. Throughout the event we will ensure our team are on hand to assist with fresh water and waste management. Electric facilities are also included in our luxury packages.
Ultimately, we offer a complete accommodation package so you and your fellow petrol heads can enjoy the very best accommodation within the Le Mans circuit. All of our packages come with bedding, towels, kitchenware, outside table and chairs as well. Or if you have any requirements just let us know!
RV Availability for Le Mans Classic
Limited Availability: Once again this year Le Mans Classic clashes with a couple of UK festivals so we are extremely busy during this weekend so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment – just fill in the form here to get a quote.
Travelling to Le Mans Classic
We would always advise you leave one or two days either side to make your way to the circuit. The atmosphere before the weekend is fantastic, with plenty of people moving in early to get the party started. After the race, however, most people pack up and disappear fairly quickly.
Camping at Le Mans Classic
Alternatively you can camp as there are some fantastic campsites around the circuit. We’ve stayed at a few but our favourite so far has probably been the Chanteloup, which has a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, chateau and plenty of dream cars to drool over. If you want to be closer to the action (Chanteloup is up to 30mins away), there are 15 campsites on the circuit campus and numerous official camp sites nearby. The rule of thumb is that the off-circuit sites offer better facilities and transport to and from the circuit, while the on-site options have the obvious benefit of being much closer to the action, meaning you can avoid the queues.
Le Mans Classic Tickets
Everyone who wants to watch the Le Mans Classic requires an individually bar-coded general entry ticket, which provides access to the circuit and general viewing area. You can buy your tickets online from the official Le Mans site, or you can find numerous resellers and travel companies by searching online.
Grandstand passes are an optional extra. There are plenty to choose from, although judging by the prices, the most popular seats are those closest to the start/finish line. Again you can use the link above to buy grandstand tickets.
Where is Le Mans?
Le Mans is approximately half-way between Paris and Nantes in the west of northern France. It’s fairly easy to get to by road, and the French motorways are generally fairly clear – even on the Le Mans weekend. Our advice is to keep on the toll roads. If you’re travelling from the UK by car (our Winnebagos will generally be delivered on site prior to your arrival) you can get to Le Mans from various different ports. Caen, Le Havre, St Malo and Cherbourg are all approximately 3 hours away from Le Mans; Roscoff (if you’re coming from Plymouth) takes about 4 hours and Calais is about 5 hours away. Ferry times and crossings vary, so it’s best to travel your journey carefully to avoid a midnight arrival!
Journey to Le Mans – Speeding
BEWARE of speeding. Many people buy, hire or borrow something exotic for the Le Mans weekend, but this fact has not escaped the French Gendarmes. They will happily issue you with a hefty fine. If you’re planning on ignoring this advice, take plenty of Euros with you!
