How to do Le Mans

Planning to go to France this June/July with Di and our 2 teenage boys, so of course we've gotta go to Le Mans for the 24-hour. Question - what do I have to know to make this a success?

I'd be keen to hear from anyone who has done the Le Mans weekend about what to do / not to do, etc. We'll probably be coming across from Paris on the Saturday, that's about all I know. How to travel, where to stay (in car??), where to watch, ............?????

ps: Our French is almost non-existent, but I can learn in a hurry!

I have yet to do the Le Mans trip but there is always a large group from the FOC UK that does go. Suggest you contact:

well, i've been to le mans but not during the 24 hours
but from what i've heard, best is to rent a camper or something and be there on monday and leave on monday
this way you can enjoy the parade of the cars in the town center (and Le Mans is a pretty big town/city) see the scruteneering and the trainings
and don't try to arrive on saterday because you will get STUCK for a few hours, same thing with trying to leave on sunday rights afterwards

oh Le Mans is about 350-400km away from Paris
