911CG should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Children's Ticket

Hi All,

A quick noddy question - my 6 year old son is coming with us to LM. When I purchased the tickets through the official ACO site, it said children "born after 17th June 1996" go free when accompanied by an adult. I did not see anywhere to request a ticket for him. All well and good but last minute (or week) nerves are kicking in - Am I right in assuming he will not need any sort of zero priced ticket to scan anywhere?

If your son is now six years old, he was born in late 2005 or early 2006, so definitely after 17th June 1996. therefore no ticket is required. He'll be able to walk into the circuit with you and will not be required to produce any form of ticket. Even the French can tell that a six year old isn't a sixteen year old......I hope!

Children under 16 and those classified as 75% disabled, or something like that are allowed in free.

Your son will need a ticket to get through the turnstiles. The ACO brochure says you can only get a child's ticket at the gate during race week (you will need to show your adult ticket of course).
These kids have the Test Day version but the principle's just the same for the race

There's no free entry for handicapped people now. They are allowed in with one accompanying adult, each at the reduced rate of 36 euros for GE. The ACO say you have to ask them about the degree of disability required.

Not if you're handicapped and want a ticket
Prices are on the brochure every year.
It was changed from free to reduced price entry in 2009.
The qualifying degree of handicap remains unchanged.

I think the changes for children and those handicapped came as a result of the introduction of scanned tickets and turnstiles.

Yes - just take your child and your ticket to the booth at the entrance.

Yes, children under 16 years old get tickets "enfant" at the gate.
Grandstands are free for children under 8, and you have to pay for children over 8.
Actually, it depends on the controller. Last year, my children (11 and 13) get in the grandstand without any supplement ticket.:-)
I'm wondering what will occur this year.

Confirmation: children over 8 must have a grandstand ticket.
