General admission tickets are priced at 320 FF (about £40 at the prevailing rate of exchange as we closed for press, though naturally subject to fluctuation). These allow you to roam the public enclosures freely at all points around the circuit, but do not admit you to the paddock or any of the numerous grandstands. A ticket limiting your viewing to Mulsanne and Arnage is 180 FF (NB: you can’t get into the funfair!). Admission on practice days costs 90 FF. Discounts are available to ACO members.
A ‘pitwalk’ ticket, at 2600 FF, includes general admission, access to the ‘welcome’ pavillion, a reserved seat in the grandstand opposite the pits and enables holders to visit the pits an hour before qualifying and an hour before the start of the race on Saturday afternoon.
Grandstand seats range from 260 to 400 FF, and camping facilities vary from 170 FF to 300 FF according to convenience of location and facilities.
Car parking is available. A reserved spot costs 140 FF, unreserved 90 FF.
It is possible that certain tickets have already sold out. For further information, contact the Automobile Club de l’Ouest on 010 33 4340 2424 (fax: 010 33 4384 4713).
