Here's some good news for those going to the race, needing a French health pass.
You can now cpnvert your NHS vaccine certificate to a French one and save a lot of hassle

That's quite a key piece falling into place right there. Thanks for the update. Will mean less explaining and potential for confusion on entry - if we can get into the country prior to that...

I just tried and can confirm this works. Although I think everyone's UK QR codes on the app updated yesterday and it's now split into two parts which is new I think. So you have to upload both halves into the French app but you get a nice confirmation at the end and they are there in your wallet within the app.

Only small snag I can see is that the UK QR codes are set to expire/update on Friday 20 August, which (of course!) falls during race week. So people will need to screenshot the code in the app, email or Airdrop it to another phone, then scan it with the Healthpass App.

your nhs code renews on the nhs app every time you log in, and the paper one renews every time you generate the pdf.

the two seperate codes iirc are the same.

the organisers have indicated that they’re in dialogue with the top frogs to get the working pass holders isolation exemptions so that’s something too. good day for movement on the entire logistics front!

The pass lasts 30 days from when you generate it. So login and go through the menus on the app again nearer the time to be sure your code lasts your whole trip.

Edit: bella just said the same thing, sorry for doubling up.

Great spot, Christopher, all loaded successfully, but we're a few days away from QR code being current for race weekend and the Monday return journey... will reload certificates again in a few days.

Ahhh yeah I definitely misunderstood the concept of the codes expiring. Thanks team.

It really is fantastic news and in theory saves us from potentially having to get a PCR every 48 hours. Midweek Motorsport gave some travel advice for people last night but weren't aware of this news, so painted a much grimmer picture.

yeah, it's a big help, if not financial then ballache.

it reads a bit like the code will time out on the TAC app anyway in 3 days, so you may well need to scan it again. i'd recommend taking a print out of the certificate with you anyway - it saves faff to have a few things on paper if you're having to produce multiple documents from your phone at border control.

with regards to returning to the uk, something i do is pack a few nhs lateral flow tests in my bag just to keep an eye on my status. it means if i do wake up feeling lousy i can make sure i'm fine without having to mess about going through official channels or finding a pharmacy, and also make sure there's no awkward surprises when it comes to the pcr test to go home with.

you'll need a proper disposable surgical style or ffp3 mask for the flying or boat part of your journey - personally i've switched to those since the mask rules have been relaxed and peoples behaviours have changed anyway. fabric ones are only really effective as an outgoing filter, as it were. i would definitely recommend wearing one in crowded areas at the circuit - this thing really does spread wildly easily when it gets busy, outdoors or in, and it's a bigger issue for us brits needing a negative result to get into the uk than it is for locals.

short Info for non- French but EU citizens:
I was able to upload my native (Hungarian) EU-CovidPass QR code into the French App 'tousanticovid'. It accepted it and displays it as valide with a green hook. So all fine, it will be valid to enter the venue.
I know the majority here is from the other side of the channel but still I hope it helps for some of you.

That's some great info there, Bella, I had no idea the disposable surgical type masks were mandatory on ferries, nor that the TousAntiCovid app would need a refresh every 3 days. Thank you!

This preparation for the possibility of travelling to France in a few weeks is a very strange experience. I'd consider myself generally quite well travelled, and Le Mans I've done umpteen times, but right now I'm feeling like this is my first ever trip abroad.

they’re mandatory on most flights (i’ve only ever seen it enforced at gatwick) and ferries just ask for a face covering. but to be fair i wouldn’t chance it with the cross section of people you get on the channel! especially if your ferry crossing is 7 days before you’re due for a test to come back to the uk it’s about smart risk management isn’t it?

the TAC app refresh is just a hunch - it says it displays certificates from within the last 3 days so i’m thinking maybe we might need to nudge it again with our unclean british certificates

and i very much agree about feeling like a travel newbie. my first flight in 15 months was with a bunch of guys for work and boy was i glad they had some semblance of an idea what was going on! my method is always to learn as much as possible beforehand and have everything ready at all times. a little plastic folder is obligatory nowadays!

The number of infected people is rising at a worrying rate now buuuuut… the fully vaccinated person seem to bee out of reach ATM. Hope its not only a bad trick played by our politicians though but seems serious.
The way our sanitary pass is handled and checked is improving each day.

You're right Bentley (your bol**cks thingy apart!) it could be your first travel abroad in those so particular circumstances. Sure you'll find some excitement! Keep "everything" busy!!!

Actually, the works on the public roads of circuit de la Sarthe are almost finished ??
But I noticed that the grass is not mowed yet at the public area of Mulsanne corner. Maybe finally spectators will not allowed at Mulsanne ?
