Held annually since 1923 near the town of Le Mans, France, the '24 Hours' is the world's oldest sports car race. It is considered one of the most prestigious motor races in the world and is a round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. Unlike fixed-distance races whose winner is determined by the fastest time completing a set number of laps, the race is won by the car that covers the greatest distance in 24 hours. Teams must balance the demands of speed with the cars' ability to run for a whole day without mechanical failure.
But statistics only tell half the story. Le Mans is an annual pilgrimage for hundreds of thousands of race fans from all over the world. It's a week-long extravaganza of all things motorsport (and alcohol!), from the all-night parties in the over-crowded trackside campsites, to the constant stream of supercars around the perimeter roads and the multi-million pound budgets of the manufacturers race teams. Le Mans has a party atmosphere that you will not experience at any other circuit, that’s what it makes it so special. You can sense the history of this great race, with it’s infamous Mulsanne Straight and tricky Porsche Curves. Head down to Arnage Corner at midnight, enjoy some ‘frites’ and soak up the ambience as the cars brake from 190mph into the 90 degree right-hand bend and thunder off into the distance, it’s just magical.

Thursday: Check-in to our exclusive French manor house, just a 40-minute drive from the Le Mans circuit. This nineteenth century flour mill situated between Motte Féodale and La Braye has been sympathetically restored whilst keeping all of its charm. The old stones, the wooden floors, the paddle mill wheel and even the bread oven still exist.
Set in the glorious countryside, the ex-mill house provides the perfect accommodation for Le Mans.
On Thursday evening we start the weekend early with welcome drinks and a buffet/BBQ, provided by our hosts and set in the beautiful grounds of the mill house. It's time to meet your fellow guests, look forward to the next few days and discuss all things 'endurance racing'!
Friday: Today is all about getting your bearings at the circuit and enjoying the build up to the race. After a leisurely breakfast we'll head over to the track and you will have free time to explore the vast retail area behind the paddock. There's an ever-growing number of exhibitors with stalls dedicated to motorsport. Displaying scale models, books, watches, clothes, jewellery, helmets, paintings, sculptures and antique automobilia as old as the race itself.
After lunch the pit lane is open to the public and you can watch the teams and drivers making last minute preparations for the upcoming race. In the early evening we move to Le Mans town centre, to enjoy the 'drivers parade'. This annual event runs through the streets of Le Mans and all the race drivers take part in a procession, launching their team marketing paraphenalia into the crowds, T-shirts, pens, balloons, posters and all sorts of other 'freebies'. It's always great fun and the weekend wouldn't be complete without it.
After the parade finishes at 19.30hrs we have dinner booked in a local restaurant, before heading back to the guest house for an early night in anticiaption of the big weekend ahead.
The hugely popular drivers parade on Friday night in Le Mans is not to be missed!
