    24h Le Mans 2017

    I am planning to tick a bucket list item this year: go to the 24h Le Mans.

    does anyone have good recommendation on what types of ticket to purchase, accommodation, any tips etc
    I am into photography so a place to take shots on the track would be great!

    Thanks!

    Absolutely! We go each year, we stay on a private campsite, it's secured and has a marquee, draft beer, race coverage and the cars on the campsite are brilliant.

    Obviously it's still camping, so tents and public showers, but if you're up for that, it's just brilliant.

    Re: 24h Le Means 2017

    Last year we rented a guest house about 2 kilometers from Mulsanne corner through a outfit called 'Destination Le Mans' and it worked out quite well. Was there 3 nights - you'll find that many places have a week minimum, and I couldn't subject my wife to such a grind. Also rented bikes from the local transpo agency, which were quite handy due to the gridlock traffic you can encounter.

    Whatever you do, I am sure you will enjoy it.

    There's usually not so many spectators at the Prologue and the atmosphere seems to be quite relaxed. On the other hand, I believe it is free this year and it is the first time the prologue will be held at Monza, so I suspect the crowds will be substantial...but not unmanageable. If I had the chance, I would be there in a jiffy.

    Excellent News! I look forward to your report. Enjoy!!!


    Re: 24h Le Means 2017

    I might be going this year, for the first time, but it is all down to work etc so could be a last minute decision. Camp is handled by some friends who has a Danish travel agency bringing 1000's of guest, so that part is ok wink

    I sure have, and if you're interested in going, they kept my spot available because they couldn't believe I wasn't coming. Smiley

    It's the Pistonheads Le Mans campsite at Blue Nord, it's a private campsite hosted by 1st Tickets, if you want, I'll hook you up.

    Going for the first time this year. Very exited Will stay at Porsche hotel (not quit five star, but I can sleep when I get home) and try to absorb and see as much as possible. Hopefully some pit visit watching TB in his real environment if I'm lucky.

    But mostly great fun to be able to see this live !kissblush
