Team News



guide Le Mans



Teams are an important part of the Le Mans experience.  Many of us travel and camp with our 'team' and many Beermountaineers are part of their own 'team'. The best dressed team award at the AMM is always a fantastic spectacle.

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.
