Planning to go in 2023, definitely not camping!
Any hotel suggestions would be gratefully received
And what is wrong with camping!!! Lots of communal boozing and generally a great atmosphere. I have never touched Pernod since a night with a load of French guys. I still feel nauseated after smelling it. A Jaguar vs Peugeot debate never reached a conclusion.

Well aside from making a cocktail last about an hour I don’t drink, which somewhat makes the patience for the downsides of camping short…

I don’t like camping either, but made an exception for the classic. Pre pitched tent, half decent shower block and breakfast included.
It meant that I could pick certain races I wanted to watch during the night, grabbing a few hours sleep inbetween. A hotel would not have been close enough to allow that level of flexibility.

Le Bounty is the answer. Pre pitched big tents, decent showers, clean bogs, breakfast and 2 course dinner included. Very cheap beer, wine and spirits, minibuses to pick you up and drop you off wherever you want to go.

Too many horrific memories of camping growing up, and my amigo went to something similar at Le Mans classic a couple of years ago and despised it and is unwilling to do it again under canvas.

Admittedly when it is hot or pishing down it can be miserable. But it can be a good laugh depending on whonelse is there. It also helps to bring a 6ft5 man mountain so you can control the loud idiots who just wont shut up.

And Le Mans does hot very well. 33 deg at the track this year. Bollox to camping in that!

I'll be leaving for the Classic on Wednesday, travelling with friends in a 'modern'. Hope to bump into you there.
