Below you will find reviews, ratings, and tips on the circuit from other race fans.
Bought my husband and his brother tickets and camping for the weekend. They qued for over 2 hours only to be turned away from the camping facilities because they were full. So clearly overbooked. Luckily they spotted a
Feild which a local farmer had opened for camping otherwise they would have had to sleep in car. Very disappointed at the level of organization of such an iconic brand and race.
I purchased weekend race tickets for the Le Mans 2014 race and was given the impression by your website that camping would be included with these tickets.
We were turned away at every gate even though there appeared to be plenty of spaces for the motorhome we had travelled in. We were directed to the blue zone to which we found this was not a hospitable place if you were English, on numerous occasions we were told to leave and were made to feel very uncomfortable and the annimosity that was felt was very unnerving.
We were subjected to what can only be described as racist behaviour, and my advise to you would be that you warn any future english campers of this behaviour.
We also had our son with us which made it even more unnerving but at no point were we told that there were any family orientaited camping sites or even just for the english !!!!
Although we throughly enjoyed the racing and the circuit facilities this did put a small black cloud over our experience.
Having bought weekend tickets for my husband as a Christmas present, and persuaded friends to travel with us for the weekend, I cannot say how disappointed I am!
After leaving our campsite at 7.00 to ensure being at the circuit for 09.00 to ensure seeing all of the day's action, we joined the queue of traffic outside the track at just before 09.00. After two and a half hours in the queue, during which time we only saw one Marshall directing traffic, it turned out that every car park was completely full. Rather than assist all of those trying to find somewhere to park they simply stood in the gateways waving people away. After nearly an hour of trying to find somewhere close to the circuit we ended up parking in a residential street 45 minutes walk from the track.
Once we finally reached the track it didn't get any better. Having walked through the crowds we finally got in to the circuit in time to see the end of the Moto 2 race on a small screen in a private area.
In the circuit the facilities were, at best, atrocious. Not enough food outlets to cope with the crowds, filthy toilets (and very few of them), and only two large screens for the crowds to watch the race on.
Overall, having moaned about the traffic getting out of both Silverstone and Donnington in the past, I would rather have saved my money and booked for either of them!
Planned this weekend for over 6 months with our friends, as regular Moto GP viewers we wanted to bring our wives so they could experience the full MotoGP weekend. We camped in Normandy for the weekend with the Sunday at Le Mans the highlight of the weekend.
After an early start we reached the queue for the circuit (by fields I would think are used to park cars for the 24hour race) around 8:30 or so and then queued for the next 2.5 hours to get to the car park. When we got to the entrance they were blocked off, apparantly full, but as there were no marshals or signs to inform us, we then ended up driving away from the track to end up parked in a residential street, 30 minutes walk from the circuit entrance (so more walking after that too). We ended up getting into the circuit after the start of the Moto 2 race, over 4 hours late and missing the bulk of the events of the day.
After queuing for food and drink, as we had been sat in a car in the sun, for another 20 minutes, we managed to find a space in the crowd to see the main race. Then the long walk back begun!
As you can imagine this was not the Moto GP experience I wanted for my wife on her first trip and I am very angry that I spent a lot of money on the tickets for a 50 minute race experience. I was happy to pay this for warm up and 3 races, but not just the 1!
I don't know if this will do anything to help, but as a company I would expect this feedback to be put to the organisers as I would expect so much more from a circuit that is internationally known for multiple types of motor sport. As a group we were not expecting everything written in English but to have NO signage, NO information, NO Marshalls and police directing us away from the circuit without informing us what is happening, is unacceptable.
This almost ruined a very expensive weekend, but the weather, the campsite in Normandy and our friends saved it.
It would be nice to get a response, but I will not hold my breath
