I apologize in advance for polluting your board for the last month with all these questions. However, you guys are my only resource and have been very helpful.

After traveling to Spa and Nurburgring, I want to conclude my trifecta by going to Le Mans. I posted about this at the end of my Spa thread, and someone suggested trying to take a bus there. However, after trying to contact the GP Travel company, I have received no response. Therefore, I wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions? At this point, it might be too late of notice to put anything together to get there. However, I feel that I at least need to try as I have no idea when I will make it to Europe again.

Maybe team langoustine is an option for you. Don't know if they still have ticket available, they have a dedicated site inside the tetre rouge corner and are fully set up with a bar and live music. You only need to take care of your travel arrangements, a tent should be in place for you once you arrive. To travel down, maybe one of our guys can lend a hand, or alternatively try the Train de Grand Vitesse, it leaves from Liege, which is close enough for you, just take the train from maastricht, heading to Brussels, change in Liege, then change in Paris. The TGV will take you straight to lemans, from the station you take the tram to the circuit.

Nurburgring was awesome. I only wish I could have stayed longer as I only got about half way around.

Due to work, I doubt I would be able to leave until Friday afternoon/night. That train definitely sounds like a viable option, however I am open to more suggestions if they exist.

Drive down, park your car outside of Le mans and take the tram to the track. The campsites will be sold out by the time you get there, Parking tickets are already gone. Le mans is an event that is far bigger then any race you have ever been to, even indy! It sells out to regulars up to a year in advance, we always order our tickets before the race for the current year even starts! you will need to think ahead if you want to do this. So either train or car and plan on sleeping next to the track or in the car. That would be your best option.

It might also be a very good option to have a look at the Club Arnage "Sell or Swap" thread, there are a few decent campsite tickets offert at the moment, for face value.

At the offical website there are only tickets for Beausejour and Pincenardiere available, but those sites are less disireble, to far away from the action (pits, village)

Are you travelling alone?

It's a shame that you can't leave earlier then friday, because I have an empty spot in my car. I'm leaving wednesday morning, think about it.

Yes I would be going alone. It would be great to be able to go with someone, but I doubt I could leave until Friday because of work. I will check on Tuesday.

I'm sure there is a terrible bout of fever/swine flu/irritable bowel or something that is going to hit your area next week.

i.e. Phone in sick!!

Look forward to meeting you there. We'll be the the English ones camping with the Dutch with the harmless Fruity Drink!! :)

You can try Bleu Nord, but there's a very good chance that will be sold out. My guess is there will always be tickets available for camping Beausejour. Not exactly the ideal spot, but at least you can put your tent down and have a rest. Don't forget to come over to camping Bleu Nord for a few beers with us, preferrably Friday night!!
