Beermountain AMM/AGM 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen, 
please find attached the invitation to the 2019 Beermountain Annual Member's Meeting.
To be held in its usual venue in the 1st Tickets Marquee on Blue Nord on Thursday 13th June at 13.00 until 15.30

The Beermountain Annual Member's meeting is the perfect opportunity to meet up with old Le Mans friends and to meet new ones too. The meeting celebrates all things Beermountain and also has a small element of raising money for good causes, more details to follow!

Many teams will attend in costumes and there will be an award for the best dressed team. If not attending in costume please wear, if you have them, your team shirts and we do like to see hats worn.

To attend you must submit your request by following the following instructions:

Please send an email to our attendance officer, 

Please include the following information:
Number in your group, real names or nicknames of each potential attendee, your team/group name and your real name. Please also state if you have attended before and if this is to be your first time please let us know how you heard about the meeting and if you know any members.

If your plans change and you need to cancel please email us, also if you need to amend you list of attendees please contact us. The guest list does fill fast and we do appreciate you letting us know of any changes.

Please arrive on time. The gate will be staffed by some of our members from just before 13.00 until 13.30.
When you arrive please give them your team name and member's names. 
If you arrive after 13.30 our members may be inside enjoying themselves and the gate will have a real security officer on duty! They will not let you in unless you are staying on the 1st tickets site and have one of their passes. You could try asking them to fetch one of us from inside to vouch for you but this may incur a beer forfeit!

When in the 1st Tickets enclosure please respect their hospitality, their staff and guests. Do not bring your own food or drinks with you. Brian and his team have a wonderful bar.

Please leave promptly, the site receives a lot of new guests in the afternoon and we need to vacate it directly after the end of the meeting.

There is no car parking within the enclosure but they do allow for bicycles to be brought in.
They are left at your risk and on that note Beermountain and 1st Tickets takes no responsibility for your possessions.

Have fun, be merry and be safe.

The 2019 Beermountain Annual Members Meeting is being planned now.
Please keep listening here and on our social media channels for more details.

Everything you need to know about your campsite..

Our campsite pages include reviews, maps and resources to make sure you can find out all you need to know about your base.

We also provide every campsite with a rating based upon a number of criteria. Our new summary page shows our rating for each site.. but this is of course only our opinion! These range from one "bottle" to five "bottles". However some sites provide a very specific role that is likely to suit some and not others, making the rating tricky. For example you would probably not want to stay on PZ54 if you did not have a motorhome, and you would be unlikely to enjoy Mulsanne if you like being around the pits for the weekend.

To help with this our members have been helping by adding their reviews of recent experiences. Can you help us? We just need you to have a look at the campsite page for where you stayed last year and let us know if you think our review is accurate. You can find our new campsite landing page here.

Once you have had a look we would really appreciate it if you could give us your feedback and a few words on your own experience. We believe that through more member reviews we can reduce any subjectivity and provide a broad, impartial and informed view of every campsite at Le Mans.

We hope your plans are going well for this year's race and that you like our new look website.

Planning your trip


A vintage trip to the Le Mans 24 Hour Race is one that is fun and hassle free. Through many years of experience, our members know the "ins" and "outs" of almost any element of what we call your "cunning plan".

Once you know the dates and your numbers, its time to spring into planning action!

If you hover on the "PLANNING>>" tab in the navigation bar above, you can see we have a section on the key elements of what you need to know. If you are new to the challenge of organising a trip to Le Mans, we suggest you read each of these carefully before making any rash decisions.

Our Map Room shows you where everything is on site and allows you to compare camping locations and also pitch numbers on some of the marked out camping sites.

Our Campsites guide is the most comprehensive independent review of your Le Mans camping options on the web. This is vital if you are new to the Le Mans scene.

Getting the right/best Tickets can be straightforward, but its important you know the realities of availability before you book. What looks good might be, but there are a few pitfalls that many have learned by either being let down or possibly paying more than needed.

Packing an be a dark art, and there is no single list that fits every team, but we try to help with some suggestions. Of course we don't know if its just you in a Caterham, or if you have double decker bus!

Our Getting There page just gives you simple links to the ferry operators and the Chunnel chaps.

Our Filing Cabinet is a store of lots of linked information that might help you with certain aspects of your trip.
