Ticket-related question: I ordered a Pitwalk ticket in the end for this year's race, but for some reason the ACO only sent me a voucher instead of the actual pass. Does anyone know where that voucher will have to be exchanged for the pass? Rotonde? Museum? Or where else might the ticket office be?

I would guess the Actisud (off the dual carriageway alongside the airport)? I think that took over ticket distribution from the Rotunde which (I could be wrong) was taken over by Porsche? Mind you, with Porsche having run off to hide with their rather fortunate spoils from the last two years, it could be back to the Rotunde.....

JJlehto1992 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hi all! Once again one great 24h is over. As i'm starting to plan my next years trip (ninth time), I'm looking to get different campsite than beausejour where we have stayed the past four years.

Im a huge endurance fan from Finland and Le Mans is a must visit every year if possible at any way. Every year I'm jealously watching all the sets of equipment people are bringing with them. For us, we have quite limited options for camping equipments (a tent and chairs basically), so our basic idea has been flying to Paris, get a rental car and then at the trackside travelling with a car for the whole weekend to grocery shop(this year we went to sentre sud for every single day) and other side of the track (mulsanne/arnage).

Next year we were thinking to get, if possible, tent pitch at tertre rouge, or other options near the permanent trackside. Any advice or ideas would be welcome to make our trip more pleasant but basically I'm just wondering how easy is to travel with a car from tertre rouge and other camping locations during the race week. From beausejour, we haven't had any issues.

Have to say also that Ive been reading this forum for couple of years now and really got many good tips, advises and read great topics about the sport overall!!

OK, we camp at TR every year, and it is a very popular site, unlike the other sites it is marked pitches but on a first come basis so you choose your pitch, for that reason it is usually the first choice for early arrivals and by tuesday is already very full, after that it is hard to find a good spot. Access in and out is easy apart from the slow travel alongside the circuit during busy periods. You can easily walk to the TR corner entry point and catch the tram into the city, and only a short trip to the huge carrefore for supplies. You can also walk to shops or to the decathlon for equipement. Yes it is noisy during the race and qualy sessions but security is good and you can see the track from the campsite. However getting camping tickets is very difficult and you will need to get your order in with an agency soon to get a chance of one, the ACO and tourist office have waiting lists for the passes they have. Other sites are also good with Houx and maison Blanche having allocated spaces if you arrive Wednesday or after. Beermountain has good discriptions of all the sites so have a look on that site.

Yeah beermountain is familiar and excellent quide. I thought the tickets ACO is having for tertre rouge, is coming available at the same time they start to sell tickets for the event? So is there now some waiting list already for next year? This year we arrived tuesday so that would be ok. Yes the tram is very handy but we used it just once during the week. Travelling by car is more important. Would be awesome to catch up with some veteran goers at TR

The ACO ticket sales is a strange system on opening (for aco members) most of the sites already show as sold out, but i know they reserve some for regular members, The tourist office does a similar thing. I know that first tickets seem to have TR tickets but aware that there allocation sells out very quickly too. Not sure i have ever meet any Fins on the site, mostly Brits, Dutch and French, with quite a few Danes/Germans/Belgiums and Norwegians thrown in, so very international, most groups now seem to be very mixed as most people camp in the same spot next to the same people every year.

We have met couple of finns during the years, this year we didn't tho. Hope we can be first finns u meet on TR. Maybe i'll put some email to ACO about the tickets. Don't believe it makes any difference but lets see. Noisiness in the campsite is just a plus for me to be honest.
