What if all the spaces are sold?   With the large volume of enquiries and limited number of spaces available, we expect that spaces on the campsite will sell out very quickly. Once all the spaces are filled, we will automatically allocate bookings to the standard PistonHeads camping area on the main Bleu Nord campsite where we will place PH members together. Although this does not offer all the facilities that are available on the private campsite, it gives you the opportunity to camp with likeminded PHers at Le Mans. We will still keep your details on the waiting list for the private camping option in case any spaces become available.

If you decide that the secondary PistonHeads camping area on the standard Bleu Nord campsite if not for you, we can look to find spaces on an another of the standard ACO campsites or fully refund your group’s deposit.

Although private camping areas at Le Mans are becoming increasingly popular, we recognise that many PHers prefer to camp on the standard ACO campsites. As an official agent for the ACO, we receive a good allocation of spaces for all the public campsites at the Classic, including Maison Blanche and Bleu Nord. For more information on our self drive packages for ACO campsites click here or to register your interest for 2016, please complete our online enquiry form.

Our packages includes your chosen channel crossing, camping pitch, general admission to the circuit, Paddock tickets, wi-fi access, cooked meals, and special delivery. Prices are per person, based on a standard sized vehicle and five day crossing. (A supplement will be charged for longer crossing durations, large vehicles and on board accommodation). Access to the site is from Thursday 3rd July and departure by midday Monday 7th July and there are a limited number of spaces available.
