Thinking of going to LeMans for the 24hr race next year.

Anyone got some links to booking a trip/accommodation ?

Also any interest in booking a 911uk trip?

https://lemansrace.com/le-mans-24h--race-schedule/

Just been recommended this company, camping at Porsche Curves

Go to the official website and book camping tickets €84 for the week, stay at the Beausejour campsite, it’s only a short walk to the curves. I bought a 2 second pop up tent, chair and sleeping mattress from Lidl for £35 and a shed load of booze on the ferry. Buy a radio on site to listen to the racing as 3G can be a bit flaky listening via mobile phone apps.
You park next to your tent for free, if you share fuel/ferry costs with with a passenger than it will be about £300 each for a long weekend.
You’ll have a superb time and get to wander all around the circuit, museum etc, don’t forget to get a lairy decal kit for your Porker.

You could try a search for Le Mob who provide a variety of packages for the 24hrs and the Classic from camping to chateau accommodation..

Sadly not!

Daytime and sober - but happy. Happened while I was watching the pink pig cross the finish line Grin




My bike was chained to a fence right outside Club ACO. When I came out the chain was lying on the ground and the bike was gone. The Bat’s too. So we strolled back to camp on Shank’s pony Sad

Wouldn’t stop me going. And won’t stop me getting another bike to take. But I might buy a better lock this time lock Very Happy

Sorry to read about the loss of your bike, I guess amongst as many folk as attend LeMans there is ever bound to be a fair number of vagabonds Mad

As I typed in my FERY loooong intro I was at The Classic this year and perhaps more in line with this thread I took up one of LeMobs packages, we opted for spoiling ourselves a tad and opted for chateau accommodation, my good lady and I are at an age where tenting it at the circuit is not as appealing as a good nights sleep out of earshot of the circuit.. Wink

I suspect the other appealing aspect for me is that I have grown out of the tribal thing to some degree in terms of one make gatherings and more enjoy a bit of variety and the LeMob bunch are certainly varied in their vehicular variations and associated chat which seems to add a bit more interesting.. To give you an idea of that which I am prattling on about I will attach a few pics..

Love that. Got a pic of the front end Infra? I like the look of the yellow light lenses.

While we are discussing LeMans I thought I would post another few pics from this years Classic... Boy it sure was HOT... Not often Caddy wins at LeMans but I think without question they won the in car entertainment competition. Very Happy

The alternative Porsche propulsion was used to ferry the race cars between scrutineering and the pits.. Smile
