Le Mans                                      Wednesday 13 to Monday 18 June

Le Mans Classic                                   Thursday 5 to Monday 9 July

Along with the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500 the Le Mans 24 Hours is probably one of the most famous motor races around. 

In 2018 the Circuit de la Sarthe will once again host both the 24 hours and the Classic. The choice is yours, to watch the cars at the frontier of modern racing technology fight it out over 24 grueling hours or step back in time watch cars from every era of Le Mans. Are you a fan of the Group C cars from the eighties? or how about the Ford versus Ferrari battle of the sixties? Whatever era is your favourite the Classic will bring the sights sounds and smells flooding back.

Accommodation will be the same for both races. Situated just 25 minutes from the track each room is either en suite or has a private bathroom. There is an outdoor pool to enjoy when not at the track. Plenty of private parking is available and as always our minibus will be available to take you to and from the track as well as the town centre for the drivers parade that takes place on the Friday of the 24 hours. The rooms are available from 15:00 Wednesday for the 24 hours and 15:00 Thursday for the Classic.

Itinerary

Depart Folkestone Wednesday or Thursday morning on the 10:00am Eurotunnel (other crossings are available, see options).

Driving time to accommodation around 4hrs 15min, 290 miles.
