The Road to Le Mans 2020 - 24H & Classic Accommodation

I’m back for my 34th visit to Le Mans this year, and following a successful inaugural year in 2019 letting our apartment in the Cheval Blanc building directly opposite the Hotel de France in Le Chartre Sur Le Loir, we are opening up bookings on the Sportsitalia & Maserati Forums prior to our general advertising commencing in October for 2020. This building was also a hotel up until the end of the last century, and was the place where several of the post-race Aston Martin team parties were held in the 1950's, including the infamous drinking competition in 1958 after all the cars retired during the night and the team went to drown their sorrows!

As you may know, there is a long waiting list for rooms at the HdeF during race events, and you can't book for love nor money. The alternative is the rental of our well equipped private apartment, which sleeps up to 4 and has a fabulous grandstand view of the hotel and all the cars, personalities and action in the square below. You can now eat, drink and mingle with these famous drivers and other personalities past and present this year without the long wait for a room!

We have already taken a booking and deposit from a Forum member for the 2020 Classic (much appreciated; you know who you are!) but if this sounds of interest for the 24H or any other dates for 2020, please visit our website for details and booking:

Just an update for you all, now Matt has filled and closed his accommodation booking for the 24H.

Our apartment is available that sleeps up to 4 available for the 24H event, if any of you want to go but have missed the boat (no pun intended!) on Matt's accommodation. My place is right opposite the famous Hotel de France in Le Chartre Sur Le Loir, the team base for Aston Martin, Ford GT 40, Porsche 917 and Gulf Mirage teams from the mid 50's to mid 70's, and is packed with photos and memorabilia in the bar. You can't get a room for love nor money at the hotel during the race weekend unless your name is D Bell or J Ickx etc, who are in residence most years.

The alternative is the rental of our well equipped private apartment, which has a fabulous grandstand view of the hotel and all the cars, personalities and action in the square below as per the photo taken from our balcony at the 24H in 2019 by a guest. You can eat, drink and mingle with these famous drivers and other personalities past and present and soak in the atmosphere.
