LE MANS GRAND TOUR

You don’t have to do anything except enjoy yourself.   Travel, most meals and passes at the track are included.   We will have access to a private facility for food and drinks throughout the race.  If you don’t want to stay up all night, there are shuttles between our glamping[1] facility and other areas of Le Mans.  You will be traveling with fellow car people and it will be a relaxed and fun experience.


[1] Glamping is a portmanteau of glamour and camping and describes
a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style
services not usually associated with “traditional” camping. Wikipedia

June 14 – Thursday, Morgan Car Factory 


Morgan Motor Company is a family-owned manufacturer that hand-builds iconic British sports cars, famous the world over for their unique blend of craft, heritage and pure driving experience.  The Company was established in 1909 by H.F.S. Morgan with the design of the now iconic Morgan Three-Wheeler. This was followed in 1936 by the Morgan 4/4, which continues to be produced today with wooden frames, and is the longest-running production car in the world. 


Like all journeys on this unique trip, our afternoon return by luxury coach will avoid motorways and instead wind around the English countryside, stopping at places of interest …including muddy fun on quad bikes, hovercraft and a mechanical excavator (plus a cream tea).


 

June 15 – Friday, Train Travel to Le Mans

Enjoy rural views from the comfort of EuroStar,  non-stop from London to Paris. Then take the  exciting Train Grande Vitesse 1st Class to Le Mans.

Friday is a day for visiting the pits, demonstrations,  museums and exhibits that are everywhere.  There will be programs at the track and practice runs.

June 16- Saturday, Glamorous Camping at the Track 

This is far more than just a campsite; more than the best food at the circuit; more than the best viewing on the circuit. The Village On The Curves is the best way to enjoy an event at Le Mans.

The idea of camping at Le Mans may be out of the question to some people and you could stay in a hotel, but you will be away from the exhilarating action and non-stop buzz of the 24-hour event. Camping with our outstanding facilities is the only way to be where the action is and really soak up the mind-blowing atmosphere that is ‘Le Mans 24 Heures’.Our site is on the inside of the iconic Porsche Curves.   The Village On The Curves will provide fully-equipped 2-man luxury tents together with nearby state-of-the-art  toilets & showers: a home-from-home! Our VIP reception marquee boasts three 50″ HD TVs covering the race, plus a cash bar area with bistro catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


June 17 – Sunday, Race Conclusion

After the race finish and celebrations we will take the high-speed TGV 1st Class back to Paris, to eat and sleep in a luxury hotel. 


 

June 18 – Monday, A Full Day in Paris

First, we will take a guided tour of Paris for a few hours in the  morning, starting with a view from the Eiffel Tower. This will give  you a nice orientation for the afternoon and evening on your own to walk, ride the subway or taxi to any of the world-famous spots in Paris. We will make recommendations and give you guidance on how to get to your favorite destination. We also may take lunch at a famous automotive collection in the city.


 

June 19 – Tuesday, Flight back to USA from Paris 

We will schedule an afternoon departure so you may again spend the morning in Paris. We will  transfer to the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport via an Air France bus that leaves from the Arc de Triomphe which is a short walk from our hotel.
