Le Mans 24 hours tour 2017 chateau accommodation & luxury club camping, 15th to 19th June.
Our four night Le Mans 24 Hours tour has been specifically designed for owners of classic, sports, prestige and performance cars.
Our base at Chateau de Dobert is the ideal location for individuals, car clubs or race teams.
Arriving in Le Mans under your own steam on Thursday 15th, you will be welcomed to Chateau de Dobert with a glass of fizz & canapes.
After checking into your bedroom, or settling into your tent, you will enjoy an optional welcome buffet that evening on the chateau grounds and have the opportunity to make new friends, whilst also regaling each other with stories of your trip to France.
After breakfast on Friday morning it's time to head for Le Mans & the Le Mans 24 Hour circuit. Time is built in for you to enjoy the parade of the drivers (17.00 to 19.00) and also visit the Place de la Republique, in Le Mans centre, to soak up all the pre race atmosphere. You will also have time to visit the circuit for a walk down the pit lane and view the participating cars ahead of the race!
For those wishing a further alternative on Friday, we will be running an optional trip with lunch to the Classic British Welcome in St Saturnin.
You are free to make your own dinner arrangements on Friday evening.
Following breakfast on Saturday, it’s time to head back to the Le Mans 24 Hour circuit. You then have a free day to do as you wish and take in the pre-race atmosphere, the trade village and the start of the race at 15.00.
Leaving the circuit at 18.00, its then time to head to the world famous Auberge des Hunaudieres where an optional delicious 4 course diner has been reserved for you. This restaurant is right on the Mulsanne straight and the current AUDI’s go by here at 345KPH! You really can’t get much closer to the action, as the cars thunder past only a few feet away. This really is an outstanding location to watch the action into the night!
This reservation is exclusive to Classic Car Tours.
Watching the cars as they scream through the forest towards you, headlights ablaze is a sight and sound not to be missed.
Alternatively you can head to the Bar Tertre Rouge and watch the cars at close quarters as they exit the circuit section and start their journey down the Mulsanne straight. It’s your decision when you go to bed.
After breakfast on Sunday, you have a free day to do as you please, either returning to the circuit to watch the end of the race, chilling out at the chateau, or perhaps a trip to a nearby vineyard in the Loire valley.
However, you are requested to be on parade at the chateau at 19.30 for the optional final evening farewell BBQ. This will be your opportunity to share all of your weekend’s experiences with your fellow tour members. Following breakfast on Monday it will be time to say farewell and head back to Blighty at your own pace.
Prices include a fully detailed road book, itinerary, rally plaque & tee shirt.
If you have not been to Le Mans before, you can be confident that this tour will take you to, or advise you off all the best locations associated with the race, leaving you free to enjoy the whole weekend experience.
