Travelling to the circuit from Paris could not be simpler. The High Speed (TGV) train goes direct to Le Mans from Montparnasse station with a journey time of under an hour. Once at Le Mans station, the tram to the circuit is right outside the door with the end of the line at Antares in the centre of the circuit.
Trams operate throughout Le Mans with a regular tram service running from the city to the eastern entrance of the circuit, Terminus Antares. Garage Vert is located 150 metres from the stop.
