Well we discovered St saturin about 8 years ago and it is now an absolute must for the friday.

It is very easy to get to but I would say get there early as the traffic jam get worse each year.

If you are in an interesting car, old, different or modern supercar you get to part in the school area, the first car park will be mostly full of featured mark, corvette this year, the curved car park is for cars used in the drivers parade.

The remainder of interesting cars are sent to the higher car parks and often concregate in groups.

In front of the school are usually some vintage french cars that do tours of the village and in the school itself will be a selection of important models, which i am sure this year will include mostly the actual ex le mans corvettes.

One of the halls is convertedinto a cinema showing various films associated with both Le mans and the featured cars.

The school puts on music and food and overall it is a brilliant event.

You can easily spend 3 or 4 hours there and have seen some of the most amazing sights over the years.

Thanks for all that, Simon!

Sounds like an excellent way to spend the Friday morning. And, very convenient, since our accommodation is just a stone's throw from the venue. Appreciate your advice regarding traffic, we'll make sure we get there early.

Better give my old banger a wash and spruce before we go, just in case they decide it's a 'classic' and insist it goes on display!

I'm more concerned that if I go, they'll think I'm an old classic and put me on display - never mind my car!

Some times very strange things get in, a convoy of reliant robins, a hearst and even a mobile toilet.

It all adds to fun, but I do wish they would restrict some of the more mundane modern cars

Attended two years ago and really enjoyed it, there's a nice relaxed friendly atmosphere and has been mentioned, plenty of unusual sights !
The convoy down to the driver's parade at the end of the day is fun too !
