Parkings Blanc and Bleu unvailable

Today, I received an e-mail from ACO which suggests me a place in the Exposition garage instead of my usual place in the Blanc.
They propose a Rouge instead ("Panorama").
The problem is that i have to pay a second DHL shipping. The ticket + DHL amount is 51€.

I believe there will be a huge event in the Blanc and Bleu car parks...

Well the ACO is obviously very busy at the moment, i am sure everyone on here got the "Black Friday" email this morning giving everyone the chance to purchase out of date items that failed to sell last year at slightly reduced prices.

I must admit this was what I was anticipating. So why would the ACO tell me that there would be spaces in Parking Blanc? Unless there are only going to be limited places, probably some distance away from the entrance...?

The Tourists always parked in Rouge and it wouldn't be a problem for me, other than it was mostly 'first come first served'. We did park in a small reserved space Rouge car park way back in 1990, but I think that's part of Expo now. What I'm keen to get is a reserved spot - wherever that is....

As to the shipping, yes, I expected that. So be it, it's only once a year.

Just receive this from Hélène (who has clearly not left the ACO.... :-

Andrew, dear member,

The sale of car parks and reception areas will begin on Tuesday morning.
A new organization has been put in place by the ticket office, we do not know it yet.
Be ready

Best regards



Now what's that old saying about the left and right hands?

Well, I've just been told over the phone that there will be no Parking Blanc next year, although the person was unsure whether or not Parking Bleu would be operating. Expo will not be numbered, so the only options I was presented with were Expo, Rouge or Panorama. Seems it'll be all first come first served, no reserved spaces.

(For Ayse and AllonFS) I wonder which car park 'man on bicycle' will be assigned to next year and how he will approach this new challenge...?

EDIT: the person I was speaking to was looking at a map, so they DO know...

Yeah, I thought the person who emailed me yesterday was telling me porkies.... It will be disappointing if there are no numbered parking spots anywhere. It's good to have a fixed spot for the week. Having said that, the Tourists parked in Rouge every year (bar one) for the 24 years I went with them. But there is likely to be significant pressure on parking if the whole of Blanc has been lost, and possibly Bleu too.... In all honesty, it may just be a case of grabbing what you can.

So, it's definitely correct that Parking Blanc is no more - well, not for 2023 anyway. Gibril has 'fessed up.....

Unfortunately I was told yesterday that there will be no more Car Park Blanc. It has been changed for the Centenary of the 24 Hours of le Mans 2023.

Here's hoping, Mal, if only to see Christopher don his flares and swing his pants again!

Also on my centenary wishlist, a return to the driver's parade for the legendary Beermountain bicycle display team 'The Wild Choppers'...!

RS6BRIT should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Newbie here, had a read through and you guys seem to be in the know! I organise a group of 20 or so guys to attend, and I book the camping and general admittance tickets at the same time. I'm now panicing as it appears they have sold out of GA tickets for the full week ? Am I mad or is this true ? It seems nuts to have had to buy the tickets before knowing if we can get camping. Do we think they are just holding back some tickets to increase early sales ?
I mean, with an average of 250k attendees (365k attended on our first vist in 2014) then surely 15k full week tickets is a drop in the ocean ?

I must admit that I can't see any full week tickets other than the ones for those who can meet the 'Green' requirements. But like you, I can't believe that the full week is sold out and there won't be more tickets available. There are shambolic elements to the process this year some of which are undoubtedly caused by whatever they are doing as part of the Centenary celebrations and a dearth of information about tickets and areas that have always been available in the past which no longer seem to be. I don't camp, but I understand the frustration of those who do, having entry tickets going on sale long before camping pitches.

Well i just went in as a guest and the site said green weekend tickets sold out but ordinary full week ones available. As the ACO charges more for the full week rather than just the weekend ones it makes more sense to sell the full week race ones and collect more money.

I don't think so Simon. Yes the full week 'Green' tickets are now showing as sold out. The full week + grandstand isn't now available as the grandstands are sold out. There seem to be weekend tickets available, so why would they limit full week tickets in this way?
