CENTENARY OF THE 24 HOURS OF LE MANS
CENTENARY OF THE 24 HOURS OF LE MANS
THE FORD GT DAYS.
Organized since 2014, it is the traditional big meeting of the European Ford GT Owners Club.
Owners and simple enthusiasts meet there to celebrate the Ford GTs.
The photos of the 2022 edition are here :
Shared passion, conviviality and friendship, moderate budgets for an opening to the greatest number, are the axes of this gathering.
I organize it on a completely voluntary basis. The sums requested for tickets, accommodation or meals, only reimburse me for the invoices of the suppliers, without the addition of a single penny.
In addition, I personally finance with pleasure, a certain number of services.
LE MANS CLASSIC.
It is the largest gathering of vintage cars in Europe, with 200,000 spectators, 800 cars competing on the 24-hour circuit, and 8,500 vintage cars on display.
This exceptional backdrop gives added interest to our great Ford GT celebration.
THE CENTENARY OF THE 24 HOURS OF LE MANS.
If you were to come here only once, it is this Centenary year that you should do it.
In 2023, exceptionally from all over the world, almost all the cars that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be there, to be exhibited, and to take part in a parade on the circuit.
This is an absolutely unique event, not to be missed.
Other exceptional celebrations will be organized throughout the weekend.
2023 FORD GT DAYS PROGRAM
ACCOMMODATION DURING THE WEEKEND.
We have again privatized a Hotel appreciated by all, "Les Sittelles", in Montfort le Gesnois.
Only twenty minutes from the circuit, it is a very pleasant three-star hotel, modern, quiet, located in the middle of a wooded park, air-conditioned, with ample parking and an excellent restaurant.
We have negotiated privileged conditions there, far removed from the totally abusive prices and excessively long stays imposed, in the region, during Le Mans Classic.
The rate obtained is € 245/night, for a single or double room, breakfast included, with a minimum stay of two nights.
Friday, July 1 : WELCOME EVENING + FILM.
It will take place at the Hotel Les Sittelles, in large premises opening onto the Ford GT car park.
We organized an aperitif and a dinner there on the theme "Discovering the gastronomy of Le Mans ». After dinner, a film on the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be shown.
The Hotel charges us, for this evening, a flat rate of € 85 per person.
Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July : LE MANS CLASSIC.
The Ford GTs will be exhibited in a privatized area set up on the edge of the Bugatti circuit, in the midst of the most prestigious Clubs. I invited the British GT40 Club to celebrate this centenary with us, and to exhibit its cars in front of our Ford GTs. This group should be rich in contacts, and spectacular.
Our space will have a private shelter, with tables, chairs and bottles of water.
Participants will be welcomed and assisted in French and English by young enthusiasts.
Throughout the weekend, everyone will be able to freely enjoy the many exhibitions, thousands of rare cars, and the racing spectacle, day and night.
Throughout the weekend, tickets will give access to all Le Mans Classic facilities and exhibitions, including the very interesting paddocks.
Their price is 90 € / person ( reduced "Club" rate ).
Ford GT owners will have to pay a supplement of €150 per car, for participation in the development of our exhibition space.
Morning of Saturday July 2 : PARADE OF FORD GTs AND GT40s ON THE 24-HOUR CIRCUIT.
Early in the morning, our FORD GTs and GT40s will take part in a Parade of at least two laps on the 24-hour circuit.
ATTENTION: Participation in this Saturday morning parade, being a rare privilege, which the organizers have kindly granted us, the number of places is very limited.
This participation is invoiced to us 210 € / car ( Helmet compulsory ).
Evening of Saturday July 2 : GASTRONOMIC DINNER ON THE CIRCUIT + TERRACE + BAR.
I have reserved a few places at the "Espace Privilège" for :
- A grouped gourmet dinner, prepared by a Michelin-starred chef, and served in the glazed area overlooking the circuit.
- After dinner, the access to the Panoramic Terrace and its Bar, overlooking the circuit, to watch the night races.
The reduced flat rate negotiated, is €120 ( against €160 ) per person, for the evening.
The interest in this Centenary edition is such that, at the end of last October, only a few hours after the opening of the ticket office, all the interesting services were already sold.
I was able to block most of what was necessary for the success of our FORD GT DAYS, but some services are limited.
Consequently, it is essential to contact us very quickly at the following address, so that a registration form can be sent to you. :
