The most accurate definition of a very Exclusive Racing Experience!
Out of the 300,000 fans in attendance for the Running of Le Mans, very few will have the exclusive access and experience that you’ll have. There are some things in life that are priceless; this qualifies as one of them.
For diehard race fans, the 24-Hours of Le Mans is an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Imagine standing at the pit wall, surrounded by the team’s crew, experiencing the sights, the sounds and the emotions of the race with over a half a million fans screaming behind you. This incredible experience includes seven nights’ accommodations at a beautiful French Chateau only minutes from the track, plus THE most exclusive VIP pit access passes including paddock hospitality as part of a selected race team. Some of the fantastic inclusions are a helicopter fly-over during the race and on-demand private transportation to key race locations during the duration of the race.
