The Place de la République will host scrutineering

The scrutineering will take place on The Place de la République because of the works for the second tram' s line. For those who will be there , you'll have to be careful of the parking places that are not so numerous in the center. You can park on la Place des Jacobins. Pictures of the works on this place to come.

Parking......

What are the parking regulations on a Sunday, in the centre of Le Mans?

Where is the best place to park on the Monday?

Where to park ?
Despite the works for the tram, you can still park at La Place des Jacobins ( less places than usually) where the scrutineering stood last year. You can park along the river down the center, Car park at University is a good idea. Remember that parking is free on Sunday but on Monday you have to pay in the center.

When you click on the links, youtube says something went wrong and videos are not showing. Just press refresh/F5 and it works.

Edit: please ignore my rather silly remark.

I did some searching and was surprised to find that there really haven't been too many discussions related solely to scrutineering.

Alas, we're still roughly 150 days away, however my mind can't help but daydream and look forward to the middle of June. In that spirit I'm always trying to plan ahead to make the most of my time there, while also driving myself crazy with anticipation.

Now then, I feel like after three previous trips I have a pretty good grasp of what to do at the circuit for race week. However, I've only done scrutineering the one time, and I felt like I could have gotten more out of it.

I was hoping those who make a habit of scrutineering could fill me in on some suggestions and tips. Where do you situate yourself mostly? What do you get out of it? What are the dos and the don'ts?

I got there late the first day and ended up on the corner of the plaza, just before the queue for the cars splits in two. A plus was that I got to see the cars both coming in and then going back out. The negative was that it felt like other than that there wasn't a whole lot going on.

On day two I got there early and ended up on the fence line where the cars and drivers are lined up for the team photos. This was much more enjoyable, however I realized that if I wanted to stay at this spot I needed to stay at it and not give it up, otherwise someone else would snag it. That wasn't then conducive to enjoying anything else or getting any other experience.

So, what can you all who have done this more suggest? Is there a secret, relaxed area where you can see more of the cars and drivers without the crush of people and where it's easier to come and go? Should I be wherever the cars are unloaded (I never figured out where that was), or is there a place where all the drivers end up at and hang out?

Again, just trying to maximize the experience next time.
