the stricter minimum standard to Crit Air 2 has now been pushed back to 2025 - same year as Le Mans may possibly be affected.

Think the biometric testing at UK ports (EES) has also been pushed back to the end of the year (2023). So currently 2024 LM race for EES and ETIAS for most UK nationals

I've just received my tickets today from travel destinations.
There is a ticket for Wednesday and Thursday, and another for Saturday and Sunday... Presumably there should be one for Friday too right?

It appears they have not given you the full week tickets but practice and weekend ones, so you can not enter the track during friday, however if you are camping within the GE area the problem is you can not leave as you will not be allowed back in until saturday morning. What did you order from TD if this is not what you ordered best contact them and hope they can sort it out for you.

Thank you. I wasn't specific with them I suppose, I said I wanted to go to le mans and arrive on Thursday lunchtime. Would have thought it was implicit I wanted Friday!

I will contact them but given everything is sold out I'm not very optimistic...

Camping at Beaujolais, presumably that is in the GE area?

TD should have the ability to sort out the tickets to be honest the two pairs of tickets cost more than the full week, However you will be ble to have a good walk around on thursday and on friday the events taking place away from the ge are likely to take up most of the day, i would recommend the classic british welcome in the morning and stuff on the mulsanne straight early afternood and then the drivers parade, Friday evening enjoy the campsite atmosphere and get to know your neighbours plus a good BBQ and a few beers/glasses of wine

Honestly I’d think not having a Friday GE ticket wouldn’t be too big a deal. So much to do away from the circuit.

That was it - a different time for the parade.

Strangely, my pc is saying that both of those links are not secure.

Personally, I had assumed it was a deliberate piece of comedic word alteration. Loved it, made me chuckle, and I shall always refer to the campsite in question as 'Beaujolais' from now on.

clos-fleuri is outside the GE so should not be a problem with glass into the campsite, if you stop at a supermarket on the way down then they will have all the stuff you need without being stripped out like those closer to the circuit. If you use the old n138 from rouen then plenty of places to stop and you will have a shorter and more picturesque journey down without paying tolls. If you have other arriving before friday then getting them to reserve a spot for you is ok but if you have marked pitches and a reference number you will be ok, As the campsite is new this year i am not certain pitches will be allocated until you arrive. Not heard anything about shuttle busses from the campsite so expect a good walk to the main part of the circuit.

Lastly Sunday night the security will have vanished so if you head to a restaurent make sure all of you valuable are locked away as the recycling community will be in the campsite,

Help me please! I really want to get into the centenary race. Already paid for transport and hotel, but I was deceived with tickets. I don't have tickets for the race. It is not possible to buy them now. Are there free places around this huge track from where you can watch the race? Part of any of the turns can be seen.

It is very difficult to see any of the race without a ticket, but as the race approaches there will be plenty for sale and the closer it gets the cheaper those tickets for sale will become.

Thank you very much for the answer. Can I arrange with someone to go inside the campsite with him and watch the race from there?

Most of the campsites are outside the general tticket area and several have fan zones which will have big screens but no actual views of the track. If you are on foot you will have no problem entering those campsites.

Thank you! Already good. Can you advise which is the best campsite for me to go on foot? Preferably where there is a large screen.

Unless your "new friend" has a triple-deck bus, I'd answer no. IMO.

If you check the ACO site map it shows all the campsites and those with fan zones, pretty sure Beasjours and the new sites all have screens but best to check on the aco site to confirm

Alex, check out the ACO's ticket resale site

https://ticketchange.24h-lemans.com/...saleProducts/?

There have been entry tickets coming up all day on the site. I myself bought one from there only a few days ago. If you buy from the ACO you can be sure the tickets are valid and you will only pay the face value. Just be patient and keep refreshing the page. You may have to stay on there all day, but, if you want to be there......
