Itinerary

Thursday 5th July

Sailing from Portsmouth to Caen on the Thursday overnight crossing, you will arrive in the evening and be greeted by a Classic Grand Touring Tour Manager.

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.

Friday 6th July

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 to take you 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 into the circuit to see some of the practice races or go across to Cerans-Foulletourte to check into the Chateau Domaine de Bel Air, for the exclusive use of Classic Grand Touring clients and just 10 minutes from Arnage. After an exciting first day you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the indoor pool and prepare for this evening’s ‘Welcome to Le Mans’ Barbeque in the lovely grounds of the Château.

Saturday 7th July

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 refreshments throughout the weekend in our hospitality area. 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 line ups 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, a very special Michelin starred dinner has been arranged in the exclusive Welcome Building by the track which has a viewing balcony overlooking the start/finish straight.

Whenever you are ready you can return to the Château.

Sunday 8th July

After breakfast on Sunday you can come and go from the track as you please until the racing finishes that afternoon. The hospitality 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.

This evening, dinner has been arranged at the Château.

Monday 9th July

Following a more leisurely breakfast this morning, you can relax by the pool and in the grounds at the Chateau. You might want to stock up on beer, wines and local food specialities (if car space allows!) before setting off for your return journey across the Channel from Caen to Portsmouth on the afternoon ferry.
