Summary

Similar to Interieur Musee. Often a baron place, really only a camping area for visitors who want a car or camper van right in the middle of it all with none of the creature comforts. Situated opposite the Dunlop bridge down the slope towards the Bugatti circuit, you are close to the village and the track. We can't see any reason why people use this site, but many of you disagree! It has expanded further into the Bugatti circuit now, and at this side is actually almost civilised...

Pros: 

Close to the action

Easier to find for the first timer than Tertre Rouge's entrance

Cons: 

Rough, sloping ground; noise; no facilities at all; constant stream of spectators wandering by urinating in your tent

Wide open to the general public with zero security.


Close by:

Nothing really. With the road open there is a small industrial estate with a good Decathlon towards the top of the Mulsanne straight.



2009 review by Mr Refusenik

I was here in 2009 and hope to be back this year (even if I have to mug my credit card).

Location & Access: If you look at the Google Earth fly by for the camp site all you have to do is follow the underground pedestrian route south from the west end of Tertre Rouge through the large walled circular enclosure and under the Bugatti intestines to the south et voila: Garages Verte. Easy access for all including thieves.

Camping: Plenty of pitchs. Ground is gently sloping (so don't pitch up next to the concrete wall as rain may puddle there). Ground is easy to peg your tent down to.

Security: Zero, wide open and a major access point for the general public francaise.

Facilities: Toilets and showers available at the pedestrian entrance. Another shower block available half way up the hill but that was out of action due to flooding (from the showers) and the occasional poo strategically positioned in the middle of the walkway. Nobody looks after that block so it took a while before anyone cleaned it up.

Atmosphere: Brilliant. A tad less fun than Tertre Rouge.

Summary: We're back there this year so 'nuff said.
