Porsche Curves Update
Last week, works began at the Le Mans circuit to improve driver safety at the entrance to the Porsche Curves section of the track. This planned work was announced by the ACO more than a year ago and will include a wider gravel trap and new energy absorbing barriers. The Porsche Curves is the fastest complex on the famous Le Mans circuit and these works hope to prevent serious injuries in future races. These developments are just a part of a continued safety upgrade to the traditional circuit being undertaken by the ACO.
The Porsche Curves is also the home to our popular private trackside campsite. It will continue to be the home of our campsite for the foreseeable future. This location enables us to offer something unique at Le Mans; a relaxed private camping area, away from other camping areas, with 24 hours security, fully serviced showers & toilets and a hospitality marquee on-site.
Due to the current works at Porsche Curves, regular guests to our campsite will notice a few changes, as we are re-arranging the layout (moving the marquee & showers etc.) compared to previous years. This is to match the new location of water pipes & other services moved by the current developments.
Perhaps the most visible change will be the viewing bank at the rear of the campsite. The extension of the run off area means that the viewing bank is being moved back towards the campsite. In effect, we have had to reduce the size of our campsite as there will be less grass area available for tents. This decision was made in conjunction with the ACO before we went on sale for the 2015 event.
The very good news for all our Porsche Curves & Event Tent customers is that the ACO have confirmed that the newly constructed viewing bank will have direct access only for Travel Destinations customers staying at Porsche Curves and that there will no longer be general public access through our campsite entrance to this viewing bank. We believe that this additional security and private access will be a great benefit for all our guests staying at our Porsche Curves campsite.
The Travel Destinations at Porsche Curves campsite is currently sold out for the Le Mans 24 Hours 2015, although we are also running a waitlist for any possible cancellations. All our customers travelling with us to the Le Mans 24 Hours this year must have paid their balances before the end of March. Please check your individual booking confirmations for your exact date.
If you have yet to make a booking for Le Mans 2015 then there is still time. We have a limited number of camping options available in the circuit-run public campsites & a last few rooms at our Flexotel Village in the centre of the circuit. Please call us on 0844 873 0203 to secure your place at Le Mans.
