Travelling to Le Mans Classic
If you’re driving to the Le Mans circuit then 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.
Le Mans Classic hotels and camping accommodation
It’s 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?!
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!
