Grand Prix De France 2014: 18 May
Home to the famous 13.65km-long 24 Hours of Le Mans race which began in 1923 and is held on the Circuit de la Sarthe, the Bugatti Circuit takes riders along the old circuit for a fast right-hand 1st corner, through a left-right hairpin combination and under one of the symbols of Le Mans – the Bridgestone Tyres bridge – before leaving history behind and turning in on itself where the permanent 4.18km circuit takes over.
Le Mans is always a great weekend. We still talk about the blast we had in 2009 - great racing; great food; several late nights exploring the Le Mans night life... 2010 was widely regarded as one of the best events of the season - great weather, great atmosphere at the track. Our guest speaker was MotoGP technical guru Neil Spalding, who showed up with Julian Ryder in tow, and together provided a fascinating insight into the technical directions of MotoGP racing (as well as shared many drinks over several nights in the brilliant bar at the hotel!) Neil is now our 'regular' here!
As easy ride from the UK and many other parts of Europe, it is a great biker destination. Our packages feature secure bike parking, and we can organise ferry crossings for groups to help you in your planning. We really pack the weekend to ensure you are never wanting for entertainment (sleep - who needs it?): Friday opening dinner party and drinks with a fascinating speaker; Saturday we host our regular spot in the paddock with our MotoNight - hospitality, garage access; Sunday closing dinner in true French gastronome style (read plenty of great food to accompany many bottles of wine!). The Friday party is included with all packages, the others are highly recommended options!
Le Mans itself is a great town - one of the most historic medieval villages in Europe, home to the famous English royal Plantagenet family, and an utterly charming spot. Spend an extra day here; it is worth a look (the cathedral is stupendous!).
Our 3* Classic package is based in the centre of Le Mans, and very popular; includes 3 nights B&B, track transfers by tram, and our opening party with special guest.
Of course we have all tickets -- you can purchase any ticket with any package -- and you can just purchase tickets from us (this will entitle you to book any of our excursions, space permitting)
Get into the paddock as a guest of a team with our Team Experience offers. With team hospitality, rider meets, garage visits and full paddock access, this is the crème de la crème of MotoGP access and experience.
