The Le Mans and Hotel de France Experience has been arranged exclusively for Porsche Club GB members by Classic Grand Touring. This four-day escorted driving tour to the stunning Loire Valley includes ferry crossings, accommodation, evening meals and track time at both Lohéac and the Le Mans Bugatti circuits, combining the thrill of circuit driving with motor racing history, fine food and wine, and stunning scenery throughout.
On the tour, you will enjoy a visit to the Manoir de l’Automobile at Lohéac to witness a spectacular private collection of 400 cars. Here you will also drive the circuit for yourself before enjoying a meal at a local restaurant.
Your accommodation will be at the legendary Hotel de France, perhaps the most famous motoring hotel in France. Here you will soak up the atmosphere of many years of motorsport heritage brought to life by one of your tour managers, Maitland Cook. From 1967 to 1971, Maitland worked for JW Automotive Engineering Ltd, the Gulf-sponsored John Wyer team that raced the Ford GT40, Mirage Ford, and the legendary Porsche 917 with conspicuous success.
The tour will also visit the museum at Le Mans. Here, Maitland will use his wealth of knowledge and history to take you through the history and iconic cars from the most famous endurance race in the world. We have also been granted access to the Le Mans Bugatti Circuit, allowing you to drive your own car on the legendary track.
Cost: £995 per person, based on two people sharing a room and car throughout the tour
