Le Mans 24 Hours & Le Mans Classic Ticket Update

All our ticket & travel orders for the Le Mans 24 Hours 2012 have been sent out to customers over the last few weeks. All customers will now have received our Le Mans 24hrs 2012 ticket pack with our exclusive “Essential guide to Le Mans”. We still have a limited number of tickets available for this event, for late bookers.

We are now concentrating on sending out tickets for the Le Mans Classic 2012. We anticpate that all customers will be in receipt of their Le Mans Classic tickets before the end of the month. We will attempt to get all tickets sent out as soon as possible, however there have been some delays in printing certain tickets at the circuit. We still have some availability for new orders for the Le Mans Classic at this stage.

All customers in receipt of their tickets for both events should also be aware of the following statement from the ACO(Automobile Club de L’Ouest).

“We have become aware that the paper used for printing the camping & parking permits for both the Le Mans 24 Hours & Le Mans Classic, can over react to heat. Tickets that get hot will turn black quickly & then cannot be scanned.

We now advise all customers not to put camping or car parking passes in the windcreen of vehicles. Please keep the passes in the car & have them available for inspection by controllers, but do not leave them in the sunshine.

If any customers do experience problems with their passes, they should return them to the race day ticket office (Rotunde) where they will be exchanged for an E-ticket. Knowing plot numbers or barcodes will assist with this process.”

Following this ACO statement, we are advising all Travel Destinations customers. not to put camping permits or car parking passes for either the Le Mans 24 Hours or Le Mans Classic in the windscreen of your vehicle. Keep them available in your car, but not in direct sunlight. Please make a note of the barcode on your pass, just in case you require a replacement. Please note that this doesn’t affect General Enclosure or Grandstand tickets.
