Itinerary

 

Le Mans Classic

Thursday 2nd July | Overnight Sailing Portsmouth to St Malo

Sailing from Portsmouth at 20.15hrs to St Malo on the Thursday overnight crossing, you will arrive at the port and be greeted by the Classic Grand Touring Tour Managers.

As we wait to board, there is a huge buzz of excitement amongst the loading lines. You will be surrounded by classic cars, supercars, in fact so many special cars from all over the UK, with their owners eager to show off their pride and joy. It doesn’t matter what you are driving as you will immediately feel part of the tremendous weekend ahead.

You will be guided to a loading line and our experienced staff will ensure you are carefully parked aboard the ship. Once on board, you can locate your cabin accommodation and then head for the restaurant, or bar, to join the throng of like-minded motor racing and car enthusiasts all heading to Le Mans.

Hotel de France

Friday 3rd July | St Malo to Le Mans (via Le Chartre-sur-le-Loir)
We have planned a scenic route on some great driving roads, away from the traffic, through pretty French villages and countryside, past chateaux and orchards for a coffee stop en-route to the legendary Hotel de France in the small town of La-Chartre-sur-le-Loir. Today, you will be privileged to enjoy lunch in the hotel’s restaurant as it is in great demand over this weekend.

The atmosphere in the town during the Le Mans race weekend is very special, as is the town square in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is filled with motor racing history and is the focal point for car enthusiasts from around the world. You can immerse yourself in the Friday pre-race atmosphere, specific to this iconic hotel as, throughout the day, the square will become a destination for amazing cars and personalities.

After lunch, when you are ready, you can drive to the circuit to see some of the practice races or head straight for the hotel located at the end of the Mulsanne Straight. After an exciting first day, we will hold a welcome drinks reception at the Hotel.


Saturday 4th July | Day one of Le Mans Classic
After a traditional French breakfast, you can head into the circuit at Le Mans.

Over the weekend you will benefit from our privileged car parking spot on the infield Bugatti circuit, where you have complimentary light refreshments throughout the weekend in our marquee. As Classic Grand Touring’s marquee is on the route from the Paddocks to the track, all the cars taking part will be passing by bringing the grid lineups of fantastic cars right to us. This offers superb photo opportunities and puts us right in the centre of the action.

This evening, as darkness falls enhancing the magic, an optional evening meal is available to you within the circuit which has a viewing balcony overlooking the circuit.

Whenever you are ready you can return to the Hotel.

Sunday 5th July | Day two of Le Mans Classic
After breakfast on Sunday, you can come and go from the track as you please until the racing finishes that afternoon. The marquee will remain open for you to enjoy until late afternoon. Today, you can explore the Le Mans Classic Village, watch the racing from your seat in the Grandstand or simply put your feet up in our marquee and watch the cavalcade of cars roll past. As we are situated amongst one of Europe’s largest ‘car club’ gatherings, this is a spectacle in itself.

Monday 6th July | Le Mans to Portsmouth (via Caen ferry)
Following a more leisurely breakfast this morning, you can relax and depart the hotel when you are ready. You might want to stock up on beer, wines and local food specialities (if car space allows!) before setting off for your return journey at 16.30hrs across the Channel from Caen to Portsmouth on the afternoon ferry. The ferry arrives back in Portsmouth at 21.15hrs.
