FRIDAY MORNING BREAKFAST AND TRACK TOUR
For 2017 we can offer you a Friday morning breakfast with a Le Mans Champion as well as a commented lap around the circuit.
Our traditional Friday ‘Breakfast with a Champion’ starts at the Hotel Arbor located in Mulsanne, adjoining the circuit, first for a chat over coffee and pastries with top Le Mans professional drivers and then a ride in the mini-bus for a spell-binding commentated lap.
You will be hearing a few more ‘battle stories” of Le Mans past, explaining what it is really like to drive at nearly 320kph in the dark and in the rain! Tales of modern cornering speeds and unbelievable short braking distances – 30 minutes of explaining a 3-1/2 minute lap!

FRIDAY EVENING DRIVERS PARADE PARTY
Viewing from our private marquee at the parade start on the plaza itself with gourmet snack buffet and open bar, seamlessly followed by Friday evening post-parade buffet dinner in a top restaurant just 100m away, with special guests – current and former drivers, plus leading Radio Le Mans / Eurosport Le Mans radio / television commentator, our own band and more.
The parade is a large affair and it is full of sights and sounds – from jugglers to classic cars, supercars, marching bands and glamorous grid girls and of course, the 168 drivers of the greatest sports cars event on Earth.
Joining our party will be celebrity drivers from Le Mans 24 Hours present and past plus one of the top Eurosport / Radio Le Mans commentators, offering their insight of race week, qualifying and the Le Mans 24 Hours race.
20.00 – 24.00 hrs As the parade winds down and more teams and drivers join in (many of their families will already be with us), we reconfigure the terrace into a dining area, followed by more music and a buffet which evolves into a full dinner.
You will receive a special goody bag with gift souvenirs, including a pre-tuned radio for Radio Le Mans commentary, cap and other items. And the band plays on… with the dinner party finally winding down sometime just before midnight.

A truly rare, unique opportunity and an unforgettable experience!
Access to Team paddock and garages
From the start of the race there will be fierce battles in each of the four classes. Speed, skill and experience from the pit crews is all part of that fight.
As the cars make their initial fuel and tyre stops, a guided visit ‘backstage’ in the pits garages during a race pit-stop (just a few metres from the action) is a special Le Mans treat – really a ‘must’. It is also possible for you to come back later by yourself to watch the proceedings through the night.
Access to the pit wall for the race finish
Just before the race finish, we take you to the pit wall for the final dash to the flag, a sensational location from which you (along with all the race team members) can cheer on every car for the spectacular wheel-spinning, crowd-waving race finale.
Emotions always run high as the chequered flag falls. Anyone who finishes the world’s most legendary sports car race is a winner. Secure your place for the podium presentations, before tens of thousands of spectators descend onto the track (in a matter of minutes) to join in the podium celebrations.

SATURDAY NIGHT CIRCUIT TOURS
2-Hour long VIP shuttle bus tours of the circuit’s interior/ inside
In our experience nothing is more spectacular than to witness these cars just metres from trackside, as they suddenly appear (headlights blazing) and then disappear just as quickly – screaming into the dusk or darkness.
We take you to some of the most dramatic points around the 13km circuit – near Mulsanne, Indianapolis and Arnage corners – including to some special 320+ kph private woodlands viewing areas at this, the very far side of the circuit.
Saturday night track tour price:
HELICOPTER CIRCUIT FLY-OVERS
As the race settles down our spectacular helicopter flights of the circuit begin. The aircraft cannot keep up with the cars on the 320kph+ Mulsanne Straight, but they can cut corners more easily!
